Baltimore Oriole

This morning between 7:00 and 7:30, a brilliant male Baltimore Oriole fed among clusters of catkins and new leaves in the tops of pecan trees in our yard. It sang a clear, mellow, whistled song and sometimes gave a rattling call as it moved. Its sunlit orange and black among the green leaves was stunning, and its song was lovely.
