  • I have returned many years to the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico and this is the first time I have ever seen the Orange Oriole, 'Icterus auratus', an endemic bird species found on the peninsula.

    His beauty was captivating. Orange Oriole's inhabit low forest and areas with fruit and flower trees. It eats nectar, insects, and seeds.

    Here he sat on a palm tree capturing insects and the hearts of poolside bird watchers.
