Monday Morning, May 16
I 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.)
He also stopped at the jelly feeder.
He 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.
He stayed near our window for five minutes – but kept moving.
He’s back at the window again.
The 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.
I think they must have just been passing through, because I haven’t seen them since that day.
