Author's notes

On my return walk I saw an Olive-backed Oriole. The sunlight hitting the bill quickly attracted my attention. I think it had been chased by a Noisy Minor as I saw another bird pursuing the oriole before it landed on the branch in the photo. It was calling repeatedly from this branch.
