Um…

Very tentative identifications here. I think the first four shots are of a 1st summer male Orchard Oriole, and the last four of a juvenile male Baltimore Oriole. If anyone is able to correct me (or confirm the IDs), please do! (I can’t find my bloody Peterson’s, which is not helping.) ETA: the immature Orchard Oriole (Icterus spurius) is confirmed. I was treated to song while it was in the lilac tree, which I was able to confirm with various recordings. Much thanks to all the people who go to the trouble of posting identification materials on the ‘net.

A wee bit muddy

I would guess this grackle had been hunting for frogs. That, or he has a sideline in mud wrestling. ;D
