Subject: [HMBirds] Orchard Oriole eBird Report - Stillwater Riverfront Park, May 4, 2018

> Stillwater Riverfront Park, Saratoga, New York, US
> May 4, 2018 8:05 AM - 9:15 AM
> Protocol: Traveling
> 0.5 mile(s)
> Comments: Glowery day, with threat of rain that actually never came. Parked at gate and walked across shallow water to get to continue on main driveway. Large group of Yellowlegs and Solitary Sandpipers were around huge puddles where parts of the grave path headed to the river. Walked to pavilion and started toward muddy field that is Wright's Loop North. I could write two reports, but many birds went back and forth and all were visible from Waterfront Park paths. (Even had Green-winged Teals in the water on flooded parts of path) I heard oriole calls coming from tall Cottonwoods beyond pavilion. I saw Baltimore Oriole male first, but heard Orchard Oriole as well and found them too. They were all working the flowers. Bald Eagles continue in the area. Osprey flew by. Heard first Great-crested Flycatcher "preep"ing and Green Heron squawking.
