FOS, Bullock's Oriole, San Ramon


We had a FOS adult male BULLOCK'S ORIOLE in our yard this morning.
We haven't seen BUOWs in our neighborhood for a few years, so this was a treat.
Interestingly, the bird spent most of its time feeding on our peanut feeder, and ignoring the nearby oriole nectar feeder.
I don't see anything in the literature about BUOWs eating peanuts or indeed anything but insects, fruit, and nectar.
Guess the bird can't read.
