1.  Orchard Orioles--male in lower part of frame and immature/females above; what I ID'd as female Orchards were 4 mustard-yellow birds flying in a quarrelsome group.  I though either female oriole or tanager sp.  The four fought while flying and when perched.  I could not get a good look or shot of them due to their frenetic movements.  Is such behavior consistent with female Orchards or does something else come to mind?


2.  female/immature Orchard Oriole


3.  Barn Swallow


4.  Eastern Kingbird


5. ?Common Grackle--but his tail looks short


6.  Brown-headed Cowbird vs. Shiny Cowbird vs. other blackbird sp.


7.  Least Tern


8.  Which Tern--it was a small tern, but bill looked too orange for Least, cap didn't look quite right for Forster's

For the Barn Swallow, I was chasing them with my lens, succeeding only getting a bunch of blurry pics, then I happened to look up and that one was perched on the power line, watching me.  ?
