Icterus galbula | ORDER: PASSERIFORMES | FAMILY: ICTERIDAE
On this last day of summer we say goodbye to our migrating friends, the Baltimore Oriole, (though I think they left a couple of weeks ago.) It was great to have them build their nest right above our outdoor sitting area so I got a lot of wonderful photos of both parents feeding their young big juicy green worms! See more photos of them both on the homepage slideshow.
The past few summers have been fun with them too. Here is a male Baltimore Oriole taking a bath.
