nutsaboutnature, I will do more research on the Orioles, but you talk on the bedding material perked my interest. I'll check around here and see what I find locally. Maybe Tractor supply - that's where I buy lots of my seed and all my suet.
I have some pics to share, too:
#1 - I am awed by how red my male House Finches are.
#2 - Here's a male cardinal and I think the Male HOFIN is just as red, maybe redder.
#3 - Saw the leaves moving and spotted this female Cardinal.
#4 - My little Brown-headed Nuthatches were all around.
#5 - Lousy pic of a Brown-thresher. I'd seen one yesterday taking a sand bath, but didn't get the 40D in time. Wish now that I had used manual focus instead of AF on this one. The leaves in the foreground messed me up.
