I saw something a little out of the ordinary at Mill Creek Marsh this morning and thought I’d share it with you. Feel free to post to the Meadowlands blog if you think it is noteworthy.
No doubt it must be an escaped pet, but the bird guides indicate there are established wild colonies in the LA and Phoenix areas, kind of like the West Coast version of the Monk Parakeets.
Now we know what a red-winged blackbird/Baltimore oriole hybrid would look like.
(Thanks, Steve! Did anybody else ever see this bird?)
