Hooded Oriole season is nearly over

August 3, 2020

Sadly, Hooded Orioles will begin their departure from California any day now. The adult males will head out first, then in few weeks, mom and her kids will depart. Right now, adults and fledglings alike are fatting-up in advance of their 2000 mile southeast-ward journey to Western Mexico. I wish them a safe trip and look forward to seeing them in spring of 2021!
