    Hybridization in Birds

    Don't know how nice they are but here's my photos of a Bullock's x Baltimore Oriole Hybrid: These were taken in April 2016. Last year, September 2020, I had another male BUOR x BAOR on the feeder; the photo was a tad bit blurry but I still have it. As I understand, taken from Sibley's...

    RUHU and the OCWA

    I'm gettin' a little long in the tooth so I tend to ramble and rant more than I use too. I'll say my piece but at the end, I have a question. I'd appreciate inputs, hearing your opinion. My RUHU didn't show up the next day. I'd like to think it flew south, as a pragmatist I lean to the...
