Baltimore Oriel

Yesterday while I was driving I saw a Baltimore Oriel (Icterus galbula) flying by my window. Since both of us were in motion and I have no photo from that experience, I thought I would show you the photos I took of one on May 30, 2005. We usually hear them this time of year, and then have to go looking for them as they hide themselves high up in trees behind thick leaves.

Orange is my favorite color, so this bird really catches my eyes, along with my ears!
