Bullock’s oriole

When this rare Bullock’s oriole began to appear in the backyard of Dottie Dunlap, near Baseline and 36th Avenue, she put out the word and few lawn chairs to attract fellow birders. They were rewarded with a bird that is seldom seen in the eastern United States, and not previously reported in Marion County.
