“To Hear an Oriole Sing”
by Emily Dickinson
To hear an Oriole sing
May be a common thing —
Or only a divine.
It is not of the Bird
Who sings the same, unheard,
As unto Crowd —
The Fashion of the Ear
Attireth that it hear
In Dun, or fair —
So whether it be Rune,
Or whether it be none
Is of within.
The “Tune is in the Tree –”
The Skeptic — showeth me —
“No Sir! In Thee!”
The little faces on these..so cute..!
I love these so much and rarely see them. To have them in my garden posing perfectly and close – such a gift. Hope you have a wonderful weekend Andy.
You see the most amazing sights 🙂
Open one’s eyes and the world will reveal itself.
Gorgeous! We have them Down Under, but with very different colouring.
Is that right? I wonder if they are a different variety of oriole. Thank you so much!
How delightful – have a great week-end! 🙂
The weekend was incredible! Hopefully yours was just as grand.
Wonderful – mine was absolutely the BEST also – how lucky are we?!
Beautiful birds, great shots. 🙂
You are so very kind. Thank you so much.
its my plesure
Are these both orioles? I know the black/orange kind (only from books, have yet to see one in real life. .) But never knew of a yellow one. Love the birdbath ones.
Yes, they are. The deep orange is the male, and the pale yellow is the female. These are Orchard orioles, not to be confused with the Baltimore Orioles which I will show next.
