Update on the Gully Orioles


It seems that the young orioles must've hatched as mom and dad were very busy bringing in yummy bugs and caterpillars every ten minutes or so. It was fun to watch (and shoot) all the activity. Mom would bring in her bug, feed the brood and listen for Dad's signal call and then fly out leaving room for him to bring his offering to the young 'ns. Check out the slide show I've added in the sidebar for some more pics:) Click on the pics for a full-sized slide show.

Thank you for visiting and commenting Linda and ncmw! I'm very new to this and have lots to learn but am enjoying blogging thus far. I've checked out both of your blogs and will check back often! I took more shots of the orioles today before a rain storm moved in so expect another update on them soon:)

Hi Michele,

I came from Toni's place.

Glad I did... I love nature photography and your Oriole is great. I'm originally from Baltimore - now in Charlotte, NC. I never see Orioles anymore. Sigh...

I'll be back!
