Freedom's just another word

baglo

I sent a link to my Osoyoos photos to Tammy and to Perry Mack as you suggested.

I'm not sure they qualify as "photos and a write-up from the Rally" which was the original request.

In my opinion the great photos you took should meet their requirement!

Okay, I guess I'm going to take different view on this one. The beak is important here. The first pic is the Oriole and the second is the Grosbeak. BTW, Brian, the sunset view at Haynes Point is truly calendar-worthy. What a gorgeous shot!

Oriole or Grosbeak

Karen:

I think you are right, this bird is a Grosbeak, and I have changed the label:
Black-headed grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus), wetland | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

I think the other yellow bird is an Oriole, so I have not changed the label:
Bullock's Oriole (Icterus bullockii) | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

My reference is here:
