Well, well, well. Look who just arrived!

That’s right, the King Billies are finally here, after their amazing journey all the way from the mountains of central Mexico (or maybe parts of Florida).

I also just spotted one out my dining room window as I type this, so the odds are that there are more than one, and if you look, you might see one, too. To those of you with pollinator gardens, thank you!

They’ve arrived just in the nick of time, too, because all the birds this morning be like this.

Jeesh, they’re making my job hard lately, but I did get to see a couple of baltimore orioles chasing off a crow, which was fun and fascinating, at least for me.

I’ve also got some nice flower pictures, but I think I’ll keep those in my back pocket in case the birds continue to be uncooperative tomorrow and no new miracle of nature flies in to save me at the last second.
