Found the nesting flame robins, C Pk., but not where I’d first thought; closer to the horse ramp Watched f. taking cobwebs etc into nest & male on sunporch, guarding:

enter that fenced area where Wed walkers  saw them + lotsa yell-rumped th’bills on Wed walk c. 2+ wks ago; follow southerly fence line in easterly direction towards creek; there’s a big old tree just outside the cnr near the creek & the nest is in a ledge facing west.

I had thought I'd sent a message to this line about hearing an Oriole on our block at Carwoola on 19 August.  But apparently I hadn't, so I have now!  I have been hearing them on a more or less daily basis since then.

First Olive-backed Oriole I’ve heard this season, in Black Mt this morning.
