These days I no longer handholding my 500, but on Sunday I handheld it for about 4 hours and boys my arms, wrists, shoulder and back are still paying after two days.

    Denise:
    This is taking the back yard set up to far... putting a stripper pole in for the birds seem a bit much. There's got to be a local ordinance or some other law that you are breaking.

    Thanks! Just a basic Baltimore Oriole, I believe.

    I was about 99% sure right when I saw the picture. But then when I read "never seen it before" I started to have second thoughts, b/c I know you have posted Indigo Buntings in the past. I was thinking you were talking about species and not sex of the species. I see the females all the time at Creve Couer park up by St. Louis. The slightly odd thing about the one you posted is that her median covert (or is that greater) is whitish. They are typically pretty monotone besides the blue and some faint breast markings.
