The orioles have arrived!

The orioles (both hooded and Bullock’s) started showing up in numbers about 2 weeks ago.  Keep your eyes & ears open.  Look for flowering trees, especially silk oaks.  Hoodeds are also attracted to, and build their nests in, palm trees.  This male Bullock’s was photographed by Kim Moore on our field trip to Whittier Narrows.  He is in a flowering California walnut tree.
