I was sitting in my office last week, glanced at my tree with the feeders in it and could have sworn i saw the back 1/2 of an oriole???? This time of ear??? Nah.

SO

I was just told that across from my shop a few blocks over that there has been a Bullocks Oriole sighted. He seems to have hung out for a few months now. Odd thing is, they are NOT seen in NY! They are a western variety! A man from the Audubon society was seen there looking for it by my business neighbor.

Wrennie,
That is very cool.

Here is the silliest thing I learned at the real bird forum. If you spot the little fellow he cannot officially be counted on your bird life list because you did not see him in his indigenous environment.

Isn't that the dumbest thing ever? I would want to count it twice and consider it an extra special gift from above.

I don't see what the big fuss is over a movie star's bird, anyway, and why wasn't Sandra Bullock looking after her OWN Oriole instead of allowing it to escape where it will starve and/or freeze to death?

We had a Varied Thrush in Tennessee about fifteen years ago.
