Seems like the month of May has a Citrus Flavor to it. Orange is the theme with Baltimore Orioles and Sulphurs filling the rivers banks and shores. Baltimore Orioles have made there migratory return and you can hear there calls along most of our northern michigan rivers. Their tear drop shaped nests are not hard to spot, but if you ever try to photography a Baltimore you have your hands full. They are not the biggest fans of the long lens. Make sure to pay attention to the trees next time you float down the river, as their voice gives out a clear and flute-like whistle. Notes are short and distinct. At least try to listen in between the trout that are rising to the emerging sulphurs.
