Vagrant orioles

This has been a good year for orioles in Pennsylvania. A Scott’s Oriole in February near Harrisburg started out the year with a bang, see pictures here. This was the first recorded Scott’s Oriole in the state. The usual suspects for Pennsylvania are Baltimore and Orchard Orioles. Now, its December and there is a Bullock’s Oriole hanging out at the Lost Creek Shoe Shop at Oakland Mills.

Bullock’s Oriole

I managed to get up to see the Bullock’s Oriole the last week in November and after almost an hour of waiting for it to show up at the feeder it had been frequenting, someone spotted it down the lane in some bushes. We all sprinted down there and once we all had good looks I managed a couple shots of it hidden in the tangles.
