Pandemic 2020 Birds in Back Yard

The pandemic kept us in the city so we could not spend spring at Dagobah. We were amazed at the variety of birds that visited our feeders! Especially the Baltimore Orioles and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks! Letting go of Dagobah was a heavy decision, so we were delighted to see these birds at our feeders and stay for more than a couple of days!! The orioles and grosbeaks have been nesting at Dagobah and there were years that we had more than 5 pairs each!! It was hard to let go of these beautiful birds!!
