- Comments: "Continuing bird. Found by Jim Royer on Nov 5, 2020.The SBOR was observed in the prickly pear cactus on the edge of the road just before the entrance to Spooner's Cove. The oriole was feeding on cactus fruit. When cars drove by it would flush to a different part of the cactus. The bird seemed to have a couple fruits that it preferred feeding on. After about 20 minutes it flew into the oceanside of the creek corridor."
