Fence Sitters

 
The fence between my neighbour's yard and ours, isn't pretty,
 but those who sit on it, often are!
 
Male Baltimore Oriole

A rather grumpy looking juvenile Mourning Dove.

What a beautiful Oriole and the Mourning dove is certainly expressive. Great seeing you again, Karen. Have a wonderful day. Jo

Two lovely birds there Karen. The oriole especially appears to be in prime condition.

Some mornings I am pretty sure I rival that Morning Dove for grumpiness. And thank you, for some reason I had thought they were Mourning Doves...

Doves I have by the truck load, but we never see orioles, thanks for the treat! They have such awesome contrast in their colors.

Karen said...

Your fence sitters are delightful. That Oriole is stunning. The dove does look a bit grumpy.

He does look grumpy, doesn't he?! I wish I could catch a glimpse of an oriole here...don't think I have ever seen one, except on vacation westward.

Hello, I love the gorgeous Orioles. Great fence sitters.

Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

The colour of the Oriole is impressive. I guess the Dove looks grumpy because he's mourning.
