The big highlight from Rock Meadow today was a family of Orchard Orioles. I’ve been hoping to confirm breeding for several years now and finally succeed today.

Update: Coincidentally, great video from Lang Elliot was posted today (7/20).

Great photos and how nice to have a cute family of birds close by like that.
Great series documenting the Orchard Orioles breeding grounds. Those fledglings get pretty demanding, I don’t begrudge that Mom taking a break!
Very nice shots. We have these birds in our area, too, but they’re not a common sight.
I belive they are very hard to spot, since they blend in with the leaves! Cool photos!
