Spring is Here

 

 

 

 

The orioles are back!  Last year I spotted this beautiful bird feeding at the hummingbird feeders.  I did a little research and discovered it is a Bullock's Oriole.  They love the sugar water in the feeders and also grape jelly and oranges.  The Orioles (male and female) arrive in March and then disappear in late August.  They are really difficult to photograph as they are very skittish and any sound ore movement on my part scares them off.  I was lucky to get these great photos.  This is the male, the female is not as pretty and I probably won't see her until May.   They build their nests in the oaks, but I haven't been able to find it.
