I saw my first Baltimore oriole of the season this morning. I heard it singing, but wasn't sure, and then it flew - a bright orange male - up into a tree near where I was walking. So beautiful!
I forgot to mention that I saw a towhee the other day - I got distracted by the goldfinch nest.
Here is a photo of Mama Robin sitting on her nest.
Here's another pic, of wild sarsaparilla, a plant that disguises itself like poison ivy when it is young. But if you look closely, you'll see that the leaf stalk has five leaves on it, not three.
