- Neighbors directly to the south and a few lots north have fan palms,
and I'd seen hooded oriole here last summer. This morning a large
shrub/small tree in the neighbor's yard was playing host to a
beautiful male plus what appeared to be a female and a couple of
fledglings. Didn't have any other fruit handy, so have put out a
little wedge of watermelon.
- Tue, 22 Jul 2008 -- Today there was a lot of HOODED ORIOLE activity along
Leslie Street in Ukiah. They appeared to be a pair of adults and several
juveniles. Most of the activity was centered around the two fan palms in the
600 block of Leslie, but they ranged wider through the neighborhood. During
the heat of the day they spent most of their time in the deep shade of the
lower palm leaves.
Both a EURASIAN COLLARED-DOVE and a RINGED TURTLE-DOVE were singing in
the same neighborhood.
