- An immature female BULLOCK'S ORIOLE is coming to my suet feeder
and associating with the 7-8 Baltimore Orioles that are here.
The Bullock's is so gray that at first I thought it was another
Mockingbird. Dean Jue was able to get a few photographs this
morning when the bird finally came down to the suet. The Orioles
have remained tucked into the leaves and vines all afternoon,
and the Bullock's blends right in with the drab colors of the

- Happy cold New Year to everyone:
We returned last night from almost 3 weeks away so I was anxious to see what would
show up at the feeders this morning. I still have one female Rubythroat, who has
been uncooperative twice when Fred Dietrich set up a banding trap.
I've had one male Baltimore Oriole for a couple of months. Today he's joined by 2 females and
an immature male. I saw a flash of gray with orange cheeks--yep, it's a female
Bullock's Oriole for the 5th winter. I have not yet talked with anyone to see if she
was around for the CBC on Sat. Thanks to all who kept my feeders stocked!
I also had a Yellow-throated warbler at the suet today.
