Baltimore Orioles

Another longtime quest of Toronto Wildlife has been to get a shot of a Baltimore Oriole and a (Toronto) Blue Jay side by side. Sadly, they don't seem to hang out that much, if ever. Spring is a good time to find these birds, because they love blossoms, apple blossoms especially. And, if you're wondering, the baseball team is named after the birds, not the other way around. The birds got the Baltimore moniker because their colours match Lord Baltimore's coat-of-arms.

In most previous years, I would also have thrown in some kind of dis of the baseball Orioles, except as of today they're leading the AL East. Grrr.
