[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A different type of Oriole from my last posting but at the same place a year later.This year was a special one it seem that the heather in general was 2 weeks a head of the normal weather for that period.Less birds and less species were around but this is the chance that you take with migration birds you never know what and when you will find them
From Audubon
7'' (18cm) Adult male has chestnut body and black head,back wings,and tail.Female yellow-green;immature similar to the female but has black throat.

WOW Michel!! what an incredible shot!!
Love the lighting as it seems to really bring out the rich coloring in the plumage of this gorgeous Oriole. Outstanding detail and captured in an attractive relaxed pose.
I saw an Orchard Oriole up at Magee this spring, but didn't get a good shot of it. They are truly a beautiful bird as is evident from your wonderful photo.
Well done!!

Bonjour MIcvhel,

Les feuilles aident au cadrage de l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'Oriole des vergers. L'image est claire et nette. La bonne luminosité donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
