Baltimore Oriole 12

Orchard Oriole 10 (FOY)


We were fortunate to find one tree along the main park road that was loaded with 12 Baltimore's and 10 Orchard Orioles. It was obvious that a flock had just arrived, and they had not yet dispersed. Just beautiful. All were silent and feeding vigorously.


Happy Spring Birding,
