Baltimore Oriole at Nestor Park, 18 Apr

This morning, I saw and photographed a female Baltimore Oriole in the large hedge of blooming bottlebrush and nearby eucalyptus bordering the southeast part of Nestor Park. It may well be the same Baltimore Oriole that was present during mid-December in the northern Tesoro Grove section, but which hadn't been reported since. Baltimore Orioles in CA in mid-April are likely to be lingering wintering birds rather than new, spring migrants, which don't typically arrive until well into May.
