I had not seen the orioles around for about a week..and thought these migratory birds had all left for South America... the adult male oriole who perched on the sunflower seed dish this morning is a welcome sight to see! I had left some jelly in his dish for the hummingbirds who like nectar and jelly! The Oriole knew where to go for his refreshments for his morning routine. I would love to see him stay through the rest of the month of September if possible. In past years these Orioles left long before this.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!

    Oh he's so gorgeous! A superb capture of this most handsome bird, Andrea, and I suspect they'll stay as long as they can to enjoy the treats you share with them, too.

    Thank you for your comments...It is appreciated!!! I sure hope he sticks around as long as
    the weather stays nice...He is a beautiful bird and was especially vibrant yesterday. I could
    even see the pupil of his eye in the sunlight which is most unusual as its head is so black..
