Northern (Baltimore) Orioles...

Six page report with 18 photographs. One image, center of this page, of a male Orchard
. They’re a hard act to follow. Northern Orioles are the ones we get to observe in the North East. They usually appear by May for their rituals of partnering, nesting and breeding.
The 2 young males at the bottom were doing numbers on each other, nothing really violent, more a song-and-dance routine... One of them eventually got to fly away with the trophy
who had been on a perch nearby.
