The oriole is the Maryland state bird. It seemed appropriate to do this one while on our ‘vacation’ here in Maryland. Lorelai sat beside me when I was designing the printable and was excited to finally get to do it this morning. Unforunately, we don’t have any black paint here, so we improv’d and used a black marker for the black bits. Lorelai and I both thought he turned out cute and decided to pose him in the topiary for his ‘official picture’. =) View & Print below.
