>> Christmas morning there was an immature male Orchard Oriole in Tanque Verde Wash about 1/3 mile west of the Tanque Verde Loop crossing of wash (near a metal post in concrete in middle of wash and rope swing). It was mainly foraging high in large ash trees with brown leaves on south side of wash. It also dropped down to feed in some smaller shrubs with grape vines. Pics taken and also seen by Brian Nicholas.
