OSU picked an appropriate color for their school. These are by no means the only orange critters of Oregon but I’m surprised at how many there are.
The Black-headed Grosbeaks have just started showing up.
He even has a tiny bit of yellow on him. The female has a little more yellow and the orange is subdued.
The Orange-bellied Newt is the brightest orange of all these though.
These newts are VERY poinsonous…so don’t lick them.
