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

    • 1.23.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye!   On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too!   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head.   This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report.   We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
    • I think the good news is we haven't look great lately but are still putting up wins, nothing wrong with that. Preds have been playing well lately and we were back to back so not going to get too concerned over that loss. Heck Kuemper even looked decent last night. CM Haula and Pommers have looked a little better lately. I am starting to hope Parise is still injured or something, he kind of looks like he is doing everything as usual but just can't get anything going. If this is him aging we are in trouble, lots of years left on that contract. Maybe just a bad season or fighting the puck I just don't know but something is off with him. The good news is we don't need a lot of out of him right now, just a little bit of elevated play and every now and then contributing on the score sheet. Granlund and Zucker have been just crazy good, even without Koivu last night they were our best line, always dangerous.
