I live in rural Santa Cruz county, and I thought it would be fun to begin documenting the many birds that are in the area. I am just getting started, and I am definitely a newbie! I just joined this group today, and I am enjoying reading the archives.
I was hoping that I could start by asking for help to identfy the following bird:
This picture is a little obstructed - the bird wouldn't sit still!
I believe this to be a Hooded Oriole but, from my reading, I may be a little too far north for it.
Thanks for your help, and thanks for this group!
