The trees are heavy with Orioles. First it was a bachelor party with the men arriving one by one. Then the ladies joined them.
It must be a good year for Orioles. Last night I counted at last twenty in the yard. Of course Far Guy reported that he filled the grape jelly dishes three times yesterday. So we have very spoiled Orioles.
Look out you could choke to death guzzling down that grape jelly!
Sometimes playing “King of the Orange”
Usually we get two or three Orioles..never ever have I seen this many. They must have had a good winter someplace south. Most likely we are just a darn good grape jelly stop on their travels.
My Dad built the Oriole feeder several years ago, it has room for two halves of orange and it has two containers for jelly.
It has a flat Plexiglas roof so that the Orioles can see the tasty treats that await them! It also helps to keep the rain out of the grape jelly…we got about 3 1/2 inches of rain the past couple of days:)
