We have a pair nesting in the yard again this year! My challenge is they keep tipping the hummingbird feeders and sipping the nectar!

I have an oriole feeder ready to get out tomorrow....and some grape jelly!.....beautiful pic!......p :wink:

OH I haven't seen any of those for years. Very pretty birds and a very good shot.

Thanks ladies

We seem to have an abundance of them this year, once they find the grape jelly, there home :lol:
There are two males fighting over the same female, so I am hoping that we get a pair nesting, that would be great.

Great picture and reports about orioles. We had a couple one year and the cardinals chased them.
I put oranges and grape jelly in another area of the yard and they enjoyed that year and never came back that I know of.

p.s. The raccoon also found the grapes and grape jelly and liked it immensely.
I really didn't think the raccoon could reach it or climb down the wire, but......... fooled me!
