After last weeks' kitty interruption, I decided to try once again to capture the singing birds of Spring that are gathering in my backyard tree.

The tree branches are making it a bit difficult to get a good focus.  It would be swell if one of these little tweeters could land on that convenient fence!

ah, finally!  thanks. 

sometimes you spot a tweety bird, even when you were not trying!

 and yes, I did see a putty cat!

This peace offering was Right In Front Of US.  

There is a flock of Orioles that feed on the berries in the tree across the street, but every time I step out with my camera -- off they fly.
Maybe next week my ninja powers will be back to full strength.
