A Very Involved Father

The male oriole is a busy sort, quite active in the life of his offspring. A male is shown above as he feeds grape jelly to his youngster. The orioles are active throughout the spring and early summer, but will soon be moving on.

They are attracted to brightly colored, sweet foods, such as orange slices and jelly. In early spring, they gather bits of string to make their unusual hanging nests. Their song is a distinctive alto sound, with varying lengths. These birds were photographed in an Oakland yard by Lisa Rook, an active birder and photographer.

Photographer Marcia Warnick preserves county’s beauty in stunning images

Jay’s note: I visited The Gallery Shop last night in downtown Oakland for the opening of Marcia’s display. Check out her website. Here are some photos of the great photos that are available:

From the Lakefront Magazine:

If you cherish Garrett County and would like to own some stunning images of everything from sunlight streaming through its lush forests or serene shots of Deep Creek Lake, visit The Gallery Shop in Oakland for photographer Marcia Warnick’s one-woman show, now through October 2.

A native Garrett Countian, whose day-job is being personal assistant to Railey Realty owner/broker Bill Weissgerber, Jr., Warnick rarely travels anywhere without her beloved Nikon camera by her side. While she has always enjoyed taking pictures, she said, it wasn’t until she completed a photography course under Penny Knobel-Besa two years ago that “a whole new world opened up” to her.

Once she had mastered all the technical aspects of her Nikon and learned from Knobel-Besa how “to think outside the box” and grapple with all the nuances of photo composition, Warnick has developed a genuine passion for photography, especially focusing on the natural beauty of Garrett County. Her portfolio includes a wide variety of images of everything that is special and unique to Garrett County. . .and more.
