The Amazing Baltimore Oriole – Bird! They have arrived!

This is a post I sent in the past that says it all about this amazing bird – The Baltimore Oriole! They remember to come back to the feeder that my husband puts out in the same place the past several years. It is a joy to see them again as with the hummingbirds. In 2022 the Oriole was spotted on May 6th by my husband! I have yet at this date 5/8/22 Mother’s Day to spot one. Keeping my fingers crossed. I will share some new photos this year with you soon, I hope.

Here is my post from a year or so ago.

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.

Male Oriole – bright orange

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! I appreciate your kind support of me, my blog and books. Please keep those reviews coming! I love to hear from readers and read their reviews too! Thank you!!
