He hath made everything beautiful in his time. Ecclesiastes 3: 11

These two males orioles were on the hummingbird feeder only a split second before they flew away. Their preference to eat are grape jelly and suet but the main feeder was occupied by a squirrel at the time that I shot this picture on June 30, 2015. We enjoyed seeing these vibrantly colored migratory birds who stayed longer than usual this year.

Orioles didn't linger long
On the hummingbird feeder
To sing their love song
As both like to be leader.
But they stayed here awhile
From May til' September..
Giving us reason to smile
Of their beauty to remember.
Poetry by me AJP
