Blast from the Past!
This post was originally posted on August 30, 2010 during our western U.S. vacation. I am bringing it forward as a “blast from the past” post.
In the midst of the heavy rustling of cottonwood leaves and the lapping of waves on the shore, a twittering and chittering could be heard. At first it seemed to be just a part of the background of the windy day at Wyoming’s Pathfinder Reservoir. On investigation, though, it turned to be an upset female Bullock’s Oriole.
Her mate seemed to be busy flying back and forth and searching for food.
These were the only Bullock’s Orioles we saw on the whole trip.
