- May 15, 2003Thu, 15 May 2003 -- I went to the 501 Sherry location on a trip to Ukiah to
look for Hooded Orioles. I parked across the street and watched the tree.
It took about 20 seconds for the male to appear and about 90 seconds for
the female. Very nice views.
Then I went to the Pomo Drive location which I have been checking
about once a week since late March without luck. After watching the palm
tree for about 15 minutes, I saw a female Hooded visit the blossoms on the
Bottlebrush at 805 Pomo Drive. She flew off to the south down Pomo Drive
followed by a male Hooded. I never saw either in the palm tree. Later a
male Bullock's visited the Bottlebrush too. I checked about six other
fan-palms in the wider neighborhood, but never saw the orioles again.
They're in the neighborhood, but where are they nesting?

Note: I have not been receiving Mendobirds messages since 12 May. Is anyone
else (presumably reading this on the web) also having this difficulty?
