Subject: Burr Industrial Ponds, Jefferson Co., Orchard Oriole and Willow Flycatcher
Around 6:30 this evening I observed a female Orchard Oriole carrying a substantial wad of soft looking material near the second pond at the Burr Industrial Ponds, Bardane. I tracked her as she flew and watched her enter into a freshly woven pouch nest. As I watched her fly back and forth I could hear the "Fitz-bew" song of a Willow Flycatcher somewhere between the two ponds. Both ponds are well above normal range with all the recent rain.
