Just WOW...

We were just enjoying a break together at Bird Land and we saw our very first Baltimore oriole. STUNNING. Here is a photo from Google because there was no way I was going to risk scaring it away reaching for my camera.

Even more incredible to see it in person with the real sunlight hitting him...it was spectacular. We both immediately froze and shut up and just stared at him until he flew off (he was grabbing a sip of water). ^-^

I didn't know what it was at first but a quick search solved the mystery, and then I had some vague memory of the Baltimore Orioles the baseball team (it's been a long time since I had cable and I do still miss having sports on, I will admit) so I had to look them up and yep, same thing:

Baseball teams sure like birds! ...I'm gonna YouTube an old ball game here for a bit. ;)
