A couple of Mourning Doves in the back yard. As beautiful as this picture seems to be, the reality of it all is that it there was two Males fighting over a near by Female that was  just out side of this shoot. The fight did not last long and the dove on the right side of the image got to kept his girlfriend.

A Male Yellow-rumped warbler I caught passing through my yard this past week. He was in one of my peach trees that has blossoms on it. I'm starting to see the start of the warblers coming through along with some of the other migration recently. This week I've seen the Yellow-rumped warbler and Black-and-white Warblers that I have images of. I've also seen the Blackpoll warbler, Yellow-throated  warblers, Ruby-crowned Kinglet and a couple Blue-headed (Solitary) Vireo's along with a single Male Baltimore Oriole. Hopefully the trend will continue with the rest of the birds that I'm looking for.

An American Robin that was visiting my garden periodically looking for worms. It will be another 2 months before I most likely will see another one of these. Welcome To my first  photo post of this year.
