They are back !
My wife asked me the other day if I thought the Baltimore Oriols woul be back this year. This evening I was out back getting the charcoal ready to start to cook supper and I heard their familiar warble. I looked around to see where they were at and found them in the Mulberry tree. The berrys are just beginning to turn. I saw one pair but there may be others too. You can't mistake the bright orange and black for any other bird.

Good news CK. I'm glad your Oriols are back - now let's hope they stay and breed.
That's exciting to hear. I've never seen one in real life but would like to. They look like beautiful birds.
They build a nest that hangs from the tree branches like a sack. And it's kind of woven. They say that you can leave bright peices of yarn in the yard and they will use that in their nest building. Then you can find their nests easier. But I have done that several times and still couldn't find their nests. Last year we did have at least one young one around here.
Congratulations Captain! They are such lovely birds.
