FOS Baltimore Orioles
- I had two immature Baltimore orioles foraging in my Abelia shrub in my back yard, this evening. At first a bright flash of yellow caught my eye, and I thought it was a Yellow Warbler. I then saw it from a side view and saw the wing bars. Then I saw there were two! Grabbed my camera and got a couple of pictures. They are not as good as the Prairie Warbler, as they were taken through my kitchen window, but was very happy to get a picture for documentation of date. I don't get too many Orioles in my yard. This was certainly the earliest. No complaints! :)Has anyone else seen them in their yards?
I'm still seeing red X in place of thumbnails, which I cannot figure out why. But perhaps you can still see the pictures. Or you can see them in my picasa link.
Did you consider that these may be two immature male/female Orchard Orioles rather
than Baltimores? Orchards nest around here. The female/imm. males are greener
than their Baltimore cousins. Just a thought.
