First Post from Home ~ WHAT IS THIS BIRD??? Help Please!

NOTE: PRETTY SURE THIS IS A FEMALE BULLOCK’S ORIOLE.

I’ve a new computer and with no land-line at home, I now have HSI-wireless…very nice indeed!.  All I can say is it’s about time!

I need some help Id’ing a bird I just saw on a tree that I still have no clue as to what it is…so if you know the tree too, please give me a holler! Oh yes…I’m in Northern Nevada, just north of Reno/Sparks.

Maybe this pretty is a Warbler (of some sort), a Yellow-Throated Vireo, or an Oriole (Bullocks female?). What do you think? It’s about the size of a mockingbird. Yellow throat, chest, and rump…dark band on across eye. He/She was picking off buggies on the tree.

I'm Michelle and live in Northern Nevada ~ beautiful mix of high desert and the Sierra. While I work at the University, I'd rather take pictures, play with fountain pensioned ink, garden, cook, craft and make quilts. :)

    I don’t know the bird but the tree looks like an apple? Those really look like apple blossoms. I hope so 🙂

  3. I’m not sure if it’s an apple…I’ve never seen apple blossoms clustered like grapes before. BUT they SMELL AWESOME! Just love Love LOVE the smell of those things!

    Could the bird be a Northern “Bullock’s” Oriole? By the way, the photos are wonderful!
