2 new birds

I had to get up extra early on this fine Saturday morning, so I decided to make the most of it. After running my errand, I headed over to Dykes Marsh. Talk about a gorgeous morning! I was the only one out there this morning and I had the place to myself. I walked out to the point and found 2 new bird species for me, and got a male and female of one. Cute little birds that are both summer residents to Northern Virginia. The first is the Common Yellow-throat.

The other new bird is the Orchard Oriole. I got a picture of both the male and female.

All these birds and some more that I will put for World Bird Wednesday were all out on a little point of land, flying back and forth between trees.
