Wild Bird Wednesday–Baltimore Oriole

This rare visitor to our yard, a Baltimore Oriole, stopped by during its migration north in early February, 2010. Their primary foods are fruit, nectar, and insects.Backyard 2010 003????????????????????????Linking to Wild Bird Wednesday

    • Sports teams are named after a lot of our feathered friends, come to think of it, Stewart. The pictures aren’t very good quality, but it was enough that I was able to identify the new visitor. Hopefully if they come back, I’ll be ready for them!

  1. Great picture and I have to agree with Coming East. Your knowledge of birds is fantastic. The only Baltimore Orioles I can identify play baseball. The only birds I can readily identify are cardinals, turkeys, owls, ets.. you know, the easy ones.

    • Thanks, Robert. This was taken three years ago, and I haven’t seen one since. We would only see them migrating through, so I’d better get my nose pressed up to the window so I can watch for them. 😉
