We have, throughout the past years, had many orioles stop by our yard. I love to listen to them, and they are so easy to spot, thanks to their bright orange color. This year, however, is a little different...there are Orioles everywhere in our trees! At one point, I counted 17 males and 4 females just sitting in the branches. I put oranges out, and within an hour they are nothing but hollowed out orange skins! I love it! Just had to share :)

I saw my first oriole(I think that's what it is, not 100%) in my yard last month (April)! I was so excited. He hung around for a couple days, but I haven't seen him since. I did manage to get a shot.

Congrats on your Baltimore Oriole. They sometimes visit my yard during fall migration. They are such beautiful birds.
