Orchid Oriole

We've been catching glimpses of an Oriole for a week or two. We've also been hearing a new bird song. We finally saw a pair of Orioles long enough to get some acceptable photos today. Orioles like sitting among the leaves making them hard to spot. We are debating whether it is a Baltimore Oriole or an Orchard Oriole.

Next on our wish list is a green heron we've spotted flying twice. We are also hoping for night heron chicks since we learned that they only fish in the day and have a white "pony tail" during breeding season. Oh, and a male wood duck is back. Here's the back of his head just as he flew away from Mike's "rush and flush" photographic technique. At least he found the camera without waking Chris up.
