Streak Backed Oriole 6-21-09

This gorgeous little oriole showed up on our first day and has only made a rare appearance when I hike down the other side of the hill from our place. They "roo-chee-roo-roo-chee-roo in the trees and bushes around the house here.

I have a lot to learn about watercolor. I'd like to learn how to paint rather than illustrate so these images have a little more life.

Streak-backed Oriole icterus pustulatus . . . . apparently only rarely found outside Mexico
