Recently a pair of amazing Baltimore Oriole birds came to our feeder. They visit each year. It’s an exciting time when they arrive. My husband gets the orange colored feeder prepared with half an orange on the top and little pockets of grape jelly and water underneath in the well below.
They do eat the orange and jelly. It’s fun watching them enjoy their treats. If they happen to arrive before John puts out the feeder they let us know how unhappy they are if they cannot find it. Orioles have a distinctive sound almost like a chipmunk – they chatter loudly.
It’s fascinating to watch them in action. They do not want you anywhere near them so I sat in my kitchen and zoomed in to capture these photos.
I love to see the Orioles but hummingbirds are still my favorite bird. Their time with us is short as with the hummingbirds so we revel in their visits and treasure each sighting.
Have you ever seen a Baltimore Oriole? If not, I hope you get the opportunity if they come to your part of the world.
Thank you for stopping by. Please come back again real soon!
