Today's bird is the Orchard Oriole! Orchard orioles live mostly in the eastern half of the United States but they're only seen during the spring and summer. For us in South Texas, they're migrants. I've only seen a few, but when I do run into them, I'm struck b how small they are (only about 7 inches tall) compared to our Altamira, who's much stockier and taller. I took this picture at the South Padre Convention Center on April 11, 2012.
