Anyone is welcome to come visit and ogle. The number of orioles is now up to four!

I’d heard and read for years that orioles find oranges and the color orange irresistible, so every single year I put out an orange plastic nectar feeder as well as some cut oranges. Once, ONCE, I saw an oriole at a hummingbird feeder. Just once, in over thirty years. But this year I tried again - and the orioles have been coming in groups! Yesterday one or two males made several visits to the orange, and this morning there were two males and a female at the same time. Their rich beautiful song is all around us now!
