Oriole vs. Hummingbird
Mother's Day weekend I ran out of jelly. The Orioles let me know they were not pleased. They took over the hummingbird feeder. The Mass Audubon Oriole Project 2008 is currently happening and they are looking for oriole enthusiasts to report any birds that they see on their website.
We currently have four male and two or three female orioles in our yard. I guess putting the jelly out early in May to attract migrating birds worked. They are such characters. I had three kids lined up in front of our big window in the kitchen eating sandwiches watching their antics and giving me the play by play. Gotta love nature being better than t.v.
