An exciting day at the bird feeder this morning!!! A scarlet tanager!!!! And the dark Baltimore Oriole came back with the rest of the bunch. I had six boys here this morning (seven if you include the dark one), and one poor female.
Such a bright color!!!

Wood stove going yesterday because it was so chilly, and today it got up to 94°. Bizarre! And this morning I saw the strangest Baltimore Oriole! He was a dark rusty red instead of bright orange.
This is the normal coloring:
