Migrating Hooded Oriole

This juvenile male hooded oriole has been visiting the hummingbird feeder in my backyard for a couple weeks, I was very surprised to see it! :)

Giraffe Tongue :P

"The reticulated giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis reticulata), also known as the Somali giraffe, is a subspecies of giraffe native to Somalia, southern Ethiopia, and northern Kenya. Reticulated giraffes can interbreed with other giraffe subspecies in captivity or if they come into contact with populations of other subspecies in the wild." [source: wiki]
