Oriole Spotting

Last weekend as we were out working in the garden we saw a bright orange streak fly by — a Baltimore Oriole! I’ve spotted them a few times since moving to Niagara, but it still certainly is a rare sight in my backyard. Over the past few days we’ve watched a pair of them flit around the yard. Yesterday as I sat out on the back porch working on a book review I became distracted by them once again (one of the dangers of trying to do work outside!). They are quite shy, but I did manage to snap a few pics.

  1. I love Baltimore Orioles–They’re so striking. My parents have some who visit in the woods across from their house. Gorgeous photo.
