Orchard Oriole

Orchard Oriole.
All the practice of shooting in the Bird Studio has been paying off up here in the Smokys. A lot of the migrants are moving through and some summer residents are building nest and claiming territories. Yesterday our group watched, followed and photographed a pair of Orchard Orioles. This was especially rewarding since it was a new bird for many of the group. This was a male off of Hyatt Lane in Cades Cove. Later in the day we did get to see and photograph a lot of Black Bears as well, but with a lot larger crowd than our Oriole.
