Hooded Oriole

Female Hooded Oriole

We've had quite a few Hooded Orioles coming to our jelly feeder and bird baths recently. We think a pair (or two) have brought their fledglings along.

We went to Bolsa Chica yesterday to find the Ridgeway Rail. After a few minutes, we spotted one and an hour later we saw a pair. There were a few black skimmers there but none were skimming the water.
