It was about three years ago that I first spotted a Baltimore Oriole hanging around my yard. Not really being a bird person, I just thought a bird is a bird, even if it was a brilliantly blazing orange color.
Well, I've always liked hummingbirds and put several feeders out for them. Then, one day, my husband sees a magazine called Birds and Blooms that just happened to have a hummingbird photo on the cover. Next thing I know, he bought me a subscription. I couldn't help but read it from cover to cover.
