For a long time I've heard the prettiest bird sound in one area of our neighborhood. I've looked and looked and never even seen a hair (or feather). It's quite loud and you'd think it would be easy to spot. For the last week I've heard it again. I took a picture of the tree where I seemed to pinpoint where the sound was coming from. I put the picture on the computer and combed the tree over and over, finally BINGO! there it is. I'm sorry I wasn't able to get a better picture but it's there nevertheless. My amateur bird identification skills tells me that it's a Baltimore Oriole but I'm not sure. Can you see it? Hope you've been having a great weekend. God bless you, Diane
