Actually, I spelled it right, just didn't capitalize it. Technically though, it is now called Northern Oriole. The Baltimore Oriole was recently combined with the western Bullock's Oriole, as a single species.

BTW Rick, the X in X-tackleman is supposed to be capitalized. grin

Okay, I had to check that statement out... are you positive about that info, X?? I called a pretty well known Naturalist/book writer and asked him about this and his quote was this "I am positive that the Baltimore Oriole is still called Baltimore Oriole".

I just want to make sure were spreading the gospel brotha. grin

Here is some info I found on the subject.

"The Baltimore Oriole hybridizes extensively with the Bullock's Oriole where their ranges overlap in the Great Plains. The two species were considered the same for a while and called the Northern Oriole, but recently, they were separated again. Molecular studies of the oriole genus indicate that the two species are not very closely related."

Jeez, wish they would make up their mind. WCS, I believe you got this info from the same place I got mine. I failed to read all the way thru. My bad. Thanks for clearing it up. It was another forum where I read that they were now called Northern Orioles. Wait a year and maybe it'll revert back. wink

grinwink I got my info from Stan Tekiela as well as some reading from the American Ornithologists' Union's (AOU). It does sound as though they've tried to change the name however.

As a side note, but along the same lines. In 1983, the AOU changed the Marsh Hawk to a name evocative of a white-rumped grayish hawk hovering over grassy wetlands to the "Northern Harrier". grin

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.

    •    I think they do as good of a job as to be expected. Pills are highly regulated. International web deliveries and dirty doctors are a little tricky to weed out.      Nope, we'll use your logic and decriminalize driving under the influence.   Problem solved.   Should eradicate fatalities of those types as since it is legal, it no longer appeals to folks, they stop doing it.     Explain in detail, in a country, filled with people who love over consumption, that consume 80% of the drugs on the entire planet, how that would work.   Start stuttering.     That's about right. One word in depth answers.   On an idea that will not work in this country.   "I think we can learn that we should stop being reflexively opposed when someone else does [decriminalize] and should take seriously the possibility that anti-user enforcement isn't having much influence on our drug consumption," says Mark Kleiman, author of the forthcoming When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment and director of the drug policy analysis program at UCLA. Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.
