Hooded Oriole Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: There's a wonderful B&B on the eastern outskirts of Tucson, Arizona that we've stayed at several times.  They're right on the boundary of the eastern unit of Saguaro National Park, and they have their own 40 acres of wonderful Sonoran Desert habitat to walk around. It's birding nirvana for me, not just for the typical desert species, but for all the other area birds that are attracted to the multiple water features the owners have.  There's always a pair or two of Hooded Warblers nesting in the big palm trees next to the house. A bit frustrating to try to photograph, as usually they're quite high up in the trees, but thankfully I got this rare opportunity to get a photo when a male came down low enough for a quick portrait.
