Hungry and Tired
Hungry, tired Baltimore Orioles feast on oranges during a spectacular fallout in Texas last week (April 25-30). On South Padre Island, volunteers begged for people to bring bags of oranges, meal worms, and bird seed to get thousands of totally exhausted migrants through until weather conditions improved and they could resume migration. They've just crossed the Gulf of Mexico nonstop on their spring return from the tropics.
