Tropical Beauty


Digging through the archives, I came across one of my favorite birds seen while vacationing in Aruba.  The Troupial is one of the most striking birds native to Aruba.  A large oriole with it's unmistakable contrasting bright orange and black pattern, it has the most beautiful blue at the base of it's bill and around it's eye.  It's song is sheer Heaven.


just seeing, saying and sharing...

Oh my word, this is an incredible looking bird! Extraordinary...and fabulous images.

Thanks so much for stopping by this week to add your link at I'd Rather B Birdin'. And I must apologize for not making it over here last week, the house holiday decorating got in the way of being online most of my waking hours. Hope you understand. Have a great week.

Vibrant in colour and similar to the baltimore oriole we get in late spring.

Aruba! That's it! I've been looking for a spring break place to go with my sister and my cousin. I don't think we were going to go quite that far, but it does sound fun. And the bird pics are gorge!
