Baltimore Oriole

Monday Morning, May 16

DSC_2307I was surprised to see a Baltimore Oriole at one of our humming bird feeders. I rarely see them in our woods. The last time I saw one was in 2002, and before that it was 1997. (I date my bird book when it is one I rarely see.)

DSC_2313He also stopped at the jelly feeder.

DSC_2321He came to our kitchen window and made a lot of noise. I wish I could have understood what he wanted – or was he seeing himself in the window and talking to his reflection.

DSC_2323He stayed near our window for five minutes – but kept moving.

DSC_2332He’s back at the window again.

DSC_2333The female also came to our feeder area, but was only there for a short period of time. This is the only sighting I had of her.

DSC_2354I think they must have just been passing through, because I haven’t seen them since that day.

  1. I so enjoy these beautiful birds. We’ve had them for a number of years. I love hearing their song. It’s always exciting to spot them for the first time each spring. I’m not sure how many pairs are here this year, but I never tire of their beauty. We also have orchid orioles
