NOTES


- Last week Sandy Goodwin observed a male Baltimore oriole consuming pieces of eggshell. “I’ve read about female birds eating eggshells in the spring, and know


that chicken farmers often have crushed oyster shells available for


their poultry. However, I’ve not heard of a male bird eating this


substance,” Goodwin wrote.


If you have observed similar behavior by a male bird, let us know at tvenesky@civitasmedia.com.
