March 17, 2016 (San Diego’s East County) --Birds of a feather flock together…and sometimes, different species hang out together, too.  Eric Kallen sent in these photos of brilliantly plumed birds resplendent in yellow and gold hues, including three varieties of Orioles ( Bullock’s, Hooded  and Scott’s) as well as a Nashville warbler.  All were recent visitors in Jacumba Hot Springs.


Cover: a Bullock’s oriole (l) and Hooded oriole at the nectar feeder. Both birds are adult males.

Right: two adult male Bullock’s orioles squabble over the jelly feeder while a female Scott’s oriole waits her turn.
