They are smart Lisa! They eat it when you are not looking! We have seen a very strange bird in our tree here at the cottage this year....it almost looks like a parakeet....only darker green! Never seen one around here in all the years we have been here.
Nice yellow birdie.
Lucky you! I haven't seen an Oriole around here in years.
I have yet to see an Oriole although, technically, we live in or near oriole country. They seem to be very elusive little things. Your oriole is more mottled than I thought they were.
For the first time ever this year, I've seen orioles in the orchards and vineyards. A sure sign that we've changed our world, sigh.
We have tons of orioles around here an I have never seen one at a feeder! I am jealous! Aren't they the most gorgeous bird (and I love their song)! very cool captures!
That is so cool...I didnt think they would come to feed on suet either. My daughters both have oriole feeders in their yards, but seems the humming birds come more often then the orioles.
They're discussing the fact that they FINALLY found some food - Great shots!!!
Lisa, such beautiful shots! Smart little guys aren't they?!!!!!
Such gorgeous little birds. Lovely shots!
haven't seen an oriole before so thanks for sharing these wonderful pics. i'm going to enjoy seeing more of your neighborhood shots. beer crossing is a funny sign. and lastly, take that jump from time to time as it is invigorating. have a great weekend.oh, hope the new store is something you'll enjoy shopping at.
I learned something new today as I never knew there was such a thing as an oriole feeder. Lovely shots!An English Girl Rambles
what fantastic photos (as usual!) ... I just love those birds :)
You have just made me very jealous! I am planning to TRY to lure orioles into my gardens next spring. :)
Great shots!My Camera Critters
What gorgeous colors!
What are they up to? We'd blush if we knew....
i get so excited to see these wonderful birds with their amazing songs.it's a rare treat.how fun to watch them.
Cute little guys! I swear all we see around our yards are black birds and pigeons.
