Baltimore Oriole at Lake Artemesia.

It’s been a while since I posted anything. Between a week of flu and some very cold May weather, I haven’t gotten out much lately.

I’m posting a few pics from short recent trips, and more from a good trip to Lake Artemesia this morning. We’re finally getting a few migrants in decent numbers.
