I had a special visitor in my gardens this spring. I heard a sharp clear call,and when I looked up this Baltimore Oriole was in my apple tree. Isn't he beautiful? All the trees are green again now so although I can still hear him, he's pretty well hidden most of the time. They're nesting in local basswoods but I only get an occasional glimpse now.  -

Little birds BIG song!
I love them too!
Do you put out nectar, orange 1/2's or grape jelly for them? They've been frequenting my veggie garden I assume for bugs.

Let's try that photo again. My son showed me how to put the photo on, but I had it too small. I'd like to say I was just testing your eyes, but the truth is I goofed! Sorry. Maybe this one won't strain your eyes. [tongue]

Keep tryin',
I didn't see it the second time...

I tried the oranges one time,
but the ants liked it better...

Great picture!

I've seen them twice here for only a very brief visit - wish they would hang out longer. I tried the orange halves, and jelly, but they never found them.
