Kevin and I were BBQing in the backyard when Kevin looked up and saw this Male Hooded Oriole in our Palm Tree. The Oriole was primping and cleaning itself.

The next day this female Hooded Oriole was sipping from our hummingbird feeder.

  1. I like the oriole family of birds. Often colourful, especially this one. Here in the UK we have the yellow Golden Oriole but it is quite rare to see one.
