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

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
    • Last week I got my two Helix Mega in. I a lot of people ask me how I install them and how to avoid interference. Follow these tips and interference will be a thing of the past.

    • You really don't need much insulation under the ground slab, I like to use pole barn ins.[bubble wrap] or 1 inch r board [heat rises],gyp crete works but it is patented and can only be installed by certified and licensed factory contractors. they mix it on sight, it cant be mixed by youre local ready mix provider,as the formula is property of gyp crete.
