 NF Photo 110204 La Ensenada, Salines

This is a female. In the first shot there is a readbreasted bird flying. At first I thought it was a male. But they don´t seem to have that much red on the belly. They have a white underpart. So...who is it??

Thanks to Eileen, the flyer seems to be an Oriole.

I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
