More Orioles!

Junior is still with us, but a mature male oriole has just arrived, this evening, and is also at the oranges having a good dinner!

Great shots LadyC! I had a whole slew of birds here earlier having dinner and then noticed a red-tail swooped down and broke it all up. Hope he didnt get someone in flight..:(

Well, the orioles have been here all day, and I am about to go put the third orange out, so they have now gone through 4 halves! Gracious...time to go shopping for more! Check out the pics-the immature oriole saw the bug passing by and could not decide which to eat. He passed on the bug and kept with the orange! Good fella!
