Baltimore Oriole

Posted on May 3, 2015

I took these photos of this male Baltimore Oriole (Icterus galbula) this morning while it was in an Eastern Cottonwood (Populus deltoides) tree. It is a glorious May day out there, and I hope you can be outdoors for your Sunday to enjoy all of the migrants pouring into our region. In the next few weeks we will be focusing on showcasing the spectacular species returning to our backyards, whether it is your garden, fields, or woodlands. Various vireos are on the way. Fabulous flycatchers are about start feasting here. Waves of warblers will be overwhelming us soon. Get ready, and be sure to introduce new friends and family to the beauty of birding and the infinite value our environment.
