We went to Fort McHenry yesterday for a field trip - very cool, and my first time going to Baltimore (as opposed to driving around Baltimore on my way somewhere else...)  Of course, I was thrilled to get out of the car and see the absolutely signature Baltimore Oriole sitting in a tree right in front of my car.  Only now that I look on the internet and find that there's more than one kind of Oriole on the Atlantic coast, I'm not sure it was.  It sorta looks more like and Orchard Oriole, to me, actually.  Of course, I really only saw it's tummy side, so it makes it tough.  Maybe I'll have to go back to Baltimore again sometime...
