The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handiwork. Psalms 19: 1

We have been getting lots of cold rain with wind which is to continue for most of the week and everything is looking drab outside for now so I pulled an early morning photo from last May 17th. I love the orioles who migrate here in the spring... They bring us a lot of good color when they arrive. This female was feasting on some jelly inside of a plastic container that looks like half an orange, wired on a trellis over the feeder when I shot the picture of her through the window. The orioles are attracted to the feeder by the bright color.. Often times we do set a real orange cut in half on the feeder too that they love. The Flowering Crab Apple Tree was blossoming at the time in the background...

    Thank you all for your response...Kathryn, the jelly is inside a plastic container that is wired
    on a trellis that arches over the feeder. Often times however we do cut an orange in half and set that out for the orioles also who love the fruit ..in either jelly or an orange.
