Since we don’t feed the birds once the snow melts, we don’t see Baltimore Races or Northern Orioles very often in our yard. When I was making the bed this morning, I kept hearing a bird that sounded different. I grabbed my camera in time to find the Baltimore Race in the trees outside our bedroom. I have never gotten photos of these birds, or of any orioles. The Northern Oriole is different, it has an orange crown. I see them flying sometimes, but I am never quick enough with my camera. It was fun to finally capture this one thru my lens.

Another new-to-me bird. I saw this gray catbird all day today. I finally took my camera out and got a couple of pictures of it.

It is always a thrill when I see a bird that I have never seen before. And an even bigger thrill when I am able to get pictures of it!
Today I saw 4 Bobolinks. According to my bird book, the springtime Bobolinks are the “only North American land birds that are dark below and light above.”

I know I haven’t blogged in forever…. more about that in a different post.
For now, I wanted to share photos of our new barn as it was being built. We have had several requests for photos from people who are considering using our contractor, and this seems like an easy place to direct them to photos. Our contractor was Hostetler Construction from Cochranton, PA. We highly recommend them. They do quality work with quality materials. They construct Borkholder Buildings, pole construction barns, ag buildings,etc. I love that they come when they say they will, and have a strong work ethic. They put up our barn during the coldest, windiest, snowy December week of 2013.
The barn components were delivered.
First pole up.
All the poles are up.
First truss going up.
All the framework is done.
Working on second side of roof.
Working on the roof.
Starting doors and siding.
Finishing up details.
The Borkholder emblem. Lots of our clients have asked what quilt block that is! We hope to get a big quilt block up sometime, but probably on the gable end of our quilt studio, not on the barn.
