Baltimore Oriole

And right after I posted the photos yesterday, a male Baltimore Oriole came to the tray feeder and started eating the orange. Yeah! We do not get orioles very frequently eating oranges, even though we offer them every year. Some oriole take to them, some don't. So don't be discouraged if your orioles are not attracted to oranges. In general, once orioles start breeding they eat mainly insects and feed insects to their young. The best chance of getting orioles to oranges is in the early spring.
