Bullock’s Oriole

bullock's
This male Bullock’s Oriole was bringing a caterpillar to his nestlings on the Oak Island Unit of Sauvie Island. This is one of the more reliable spots to find this species in the Portland area. That hanging nest is a fantastic piece of architecture.

    Very nice! I was at Wapato Greenway on Sunday…no Orioles 😦

    That’s a beautifully colored bird. Nests are always an interesting sight from a structural standpoint. This looks to be a pretty sturdy nest.

    John…Thanks…I was just out at The Sandy River Delta when a bird I had never seen flew within camera distance and either attempted to tell me I was in his territory or he was welcoming me to the Delta?…looks like it was a Bullock’s Oreiole. M
