04.27.07 MORE SUMMER GUESTS
Every summer we have a family of Baltimore Orioles, Icterus galbula, in our Black Walnut tree. Orioles winter in Central America, yet every spring a few return to our yard to build their unusual sack-like nest high in the branches of the Walnut. I knew they were back yesterday when I started to hear the single flute-like note of their call around the house.
