Robin Dr, Barto, PA 19504-9371) discovered an after second year male Bullock's Oriole coming into their
feeders (seed and suet) as well as their
backyard apple orchard for the past few days. They contacted a close friend Cameron Rutt who posted the information this morning on PA Birds and needless to say the
birders showed up to see the 2nd reported male (and the fourth or fifth) Bullock's ever in Pennsylvania. The Davies family could not have been more gracious in welcoming
the visitors, both bird and man, however, there was one heinous Northern Mockingbird that took great delight in tormenting the poor Oriole throughout the morning!
Further, this beautiful Bullock's Oriole can appear bright yellow with orange highlights, and everything in between, depending on its position and the light.
