A terrific Monday begat many beautiful faces, some old, other new.  The Orchard Oriole males
have established their territories and are still holding them.  I believe there is only room for one,
more, as their ranges are very good sized .  Most males keep a close watch on their kingdoms,
and the Orchard Oriole is as much a member of royalty as the kingbird clan.
