    Yellow Jackets in the Grape 🍇 Jelly

    Yep, those glasses pictured above are as clean as they were this morning when I refilled them. The Orioles are realy nice birds , they seem to get along with other birds just fine. Now, I have seen flying squirells on my seed bird feeder a couple of times. But I don't think they are getting the...

    Yellow Jackets in the Grape 🍇 Jelly

    I usually refill my jelly glasses in the evening. Their are always several dead Yellow Jackets in each glass. Yesterday I didn't refill it until this morning. The glasses were completely empty. Do you think the Orioles are eating the dead Yellow Jackets?

I put a bunch of slices of oranges in the red punch that was mixed with sugar. After several days I poured myself a galss and noticed it had started...

    What type of Oriole is this?

    Thanks, I'm assuming he will not be breeding this year. How long does it take for them to become adults?

    Hummingbird in Panama City, Panama

    That's truly a beauty. Thanks for the info. Quick story I'm about half sure you're interested in. Years ago I used to do Taxidermy. I mounted several HB's that had ran into windows and perrished. I never skinned them. I simply injected them with formaldahyde then ran a long pin through their...

    Hummingbird in Panama City, Panama

    I'll go with that. Itmight be a male bronze plumeater. Do you have plums in yoyr area? ;) I think this is a male Bronze Plumeater. The female may look more like a female Ruby Throated. Although I do not see a blue or bluish tail in either one. Please specify male or female when identifying...

    Does feeding Baltimore Orioles mess up their ability to survive on their own ?

    Last year I was feeding Baltimore and Orchard Orioles. Once they started nesting. I realized they were staying soI felt obligated to keep the jelly jars full. They were eating three shot glass amounts of jelly a day with some grapes and oranges. I am in Mid West Indiana. I don't think their...

    Loudest bird/s you've heard at night

    Years ago four of us young teens were camping on the side of the Eno River in NC way out in the forest. During the night we awoke to the awfulest sounds of very loud growling like noises. It sounded like something was attacking or being attacked. It wasn't until years later that I heard a 'Blue...

    Golden Eagles? Loch Lomond, Scotland (Edit: Just buzzards, it seems!)

    Yes, that's why i mentioned USA . Still a very good way to get kids interested in identification. Sorry I'm not real familiar with international birds. Although I have seen several Bustards from Europe.

    Golden Eagles? Loch Lomond, Scotland (Edit: Just buzzards, it seems!)

    The buzzards I have seen in the USA all have a two tone colored wing on the bottom. It's very easy to tell. It's a gray and black. Almost like a stripe down the middle of the wing. But better called two tone. I posted a pic of one from the US that is very easy to distinguish. But in some...
