Subject: [LACoBirds] Scott's Oriole arrival, Juniper Hills

[Sorry, no Swainson's Hawks to report out here yet today...]

A singing Scott's Oriole in our Juniper Hills neighborhood today was the
first for the year. However, this arrival date is a bit later than
average. For the past five springs here, arrivals have been:
2019 -- 22 March
2020 -- 14 March
2021 -- 6 March
2022 -- 2 March
2023 -- 18 March
[mean arrival, about 12 March]

I'm sure Ruth Gravance in Crystalaire also has good data on arrival dates,
but her situation is complicated by regular wintering of at least one male
in her neighborhood. No Scott's have wintered in our Juniper Hills

Coincidentally, the first Hooded Oriole in our neighborhood also
arrived today.
