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.
Baltimore Oriole. This was the first bird other than a robin or cardinal that I spotted and identified shortly after I started bird watching. I remember hearing the call and tracking it down. I was amazed, at that time I thought you would truly only see this bird in Baltimore and here it was in my backyard!
