Here is the Oriole perched on a barbeque grill in the picnic area. He and several blackbirds had just chased a crow that dared to enter their territory. Crows are a threat to them because they will eat the young of these smaller birds.

There are several species of birds found at the sanctuary. There are sparrows internal link, blackbirds and crows internal link, and many other perching birds internal link.
