OROR in Newfoundland
It was around 08:51 on 13th August 2018 that Ethel Dempsey saw a 'good bird' at Cape Spear. Alison Mews texted me on the Atlantic Raven 300 km offshore with Frank Kings photos of the bird. I became a hurting unit in an instance. It was an Orchard Oriole!!! This is a big rarity in Newfoundland and Labrador. There were only four previous records for the the province.
On 15 August I was back on land and got to enjoy the Cape Spear Orchard Oriole. Here are some pictures of my encounter.
The first sighting. Exciting to see it in Newfoundland
