Subject: [NBB] Hooded Oriole (local interest)
I've long had Hooded Oriole on my list of yard birds as I define a yard bird as any bird I see on my property or FROM my property. I've seen them in tall trees in a neighbor's yard, but never in my own garden until a few days ago. A female HOODED ORIOLE was in a bush right outside my kitchen window. I got a nice photograph of it even though I had to shoot through a window screen. Now I feel like I can count it as a more authentic yard bird than before. 
In case anyone's interested, that photo is now the front page photo on my website
