Subscriber Leon N. DeMent, Jr. found this Audubon's Oriole at a popular bird-feeding station at Salineno, Texas, on the Rio Grande in mid-February 2012 and posted the photo to our U.S. and Canada Gallery
Audubon's Oriole (Icterus graduacauda)
is found along riversides and in dense woods in southern Texas and northeastern and southern Mexico. While Leon was photographing the yellow and black oriole, a Brown Jay
came to a feeder — a bird Leon had been trying to see for 25 years.
He used a Canon 50D with a 300mm f/4.0 lens.On our blog: See photos of Bullock's, Baltimore, Hooded, Orchard, and Scott's OriolesRead about 17 private ranches in Texas where you can find and photograph orioles, jays, and other birds
