Baltimore Oriole, Icterus galbula and the Hummingbird Feeder

My Mom and Dad have a hummingbird feeder hanging just outside their kitchen window.

It is always a treat to watch the birds come to the feeder.

Yesterday Mom sent me this photo of a persistent Oriole who wanted the nectar also.  He stayed and drank for quite some time.

You never know what birds you will see int he city!

According to Wikipedia, the Baltimore Oriole is so named because of the resemblance or the bird's colors to Lord Baltimore.
