SkyWatch Friday, a splash of color on a gray day.

I'm so fed up with the weather. We have rain scheduled for the whole weekend. I saw this snag and couldn't resist. The Baltimore Oriole is the brightest thing in the sky these day.

Seems they are quite plentiful this year. There was one on the lines by our house last night really giving it to a Red-tailed Hawk sitting nearby. The hawk was unphased.

Great photo, as usual.

You lucky photographer! We have similar Bullocks Orioles here. VERY skittish. I rarely get a picture. This is terrific.

Never mind the dark sky, because this little bird can cherish your day.

I was just telling Tom the same thing. I wish the weather would make up its mind how it wants to be and stay that way. :)

The oriol sure does brighten a gloomy sky.
