Baltimore Oriole

I put out an Oriole Feeder a couple of weeks ago because I saw an Oriole fly in and land on my hummingbird feeder.  Well I now have that oriole coming to the feeder numerous times throughout the day.  Even went I am sitting out on the deck.  I think it is getting used to me.  Of note is the fact that we don’t have any trees in out yard.  In fact, the area around us is fairly treeless.  There are trees off in the distance and the neighbors have a small Silver Maple.  But that oriole knows where the feeder is and keeps coming around.

Funny enough, I have yet to see a hummingbird at the hummingbird feeder.

    We to have an oriole. They have a nest in our back lot in the high poplars. Don’t come to feeder, but a pair of hummers do and also a pair of house finches! The finches sit on the side of the feeder and have found that when it tips a bit they can sip the necter. I have never seen them do this before. It must be dessert after the niger.

    Enjoy your oriole – maybe he’ll bring the whole family. Agree with the Free Press article – anecdotally, hummer numbers are down. Only one sighting in the yard so far. Hope they’re just waiting a little south of us. Also hope they are not affected by the same spray that’s hurting bee populations. Just a dark thought.
