Like hummingbirds orioles love to consume sugar water from a feeder. Colorful visitors to coax into one's yard. The one shown here is a Baltimore Oriole, an eastern, North American, migratory breeding bird and -- State Bird of Maryland.

"The Baltimore Oriole (Icterus galbula) is a small icterid blackbird that commonly occurs in eastern North America as a migratory breeding bird. This bird received its name from the fact that the male's colors resemble those on the coat-of-arms of Lord Baltimore." Wikipedia

Baltimore Oriole, May 2004. We had a late snow in April so there wasn't much food available for any birds. They stayed for about 3 weeks. This is the first time I saw them in my yard and never since.

Hope this beautiful guy comes back to my backyard in Oklahoma City. Last summer I watched a male and female bring four babies to my feeder.
