Camera Critter Saturday









Posted by Picasa

Baltimore Orioles may be my favorite bird after Cardinals, they are busying pigging out on grape jelly.  House Finches and Robins will eat it also.  I have a friend that says a Red Bellied Woodpecker is feeding at her grape jelly.

I know someone is pigging out on my grape jelly. I have yet to see who though! Good pictures of the birds!

I have heard of and tried the grape jelly and I had no takers,but oranges are a big hit with the orioles, and they also eat suet!!
Wonderful photos there are lovely birds!!

I do love the Baltimore orioles as well. There is one who comes to my yards, but so far I couldn't caught him on camera. Your pictures are gorgeous.

Marie said...

Wow, what beautiful photos of a lovely, lovely little bird! It's another new bird for me and one that is nothing at all like I've seen before. The variety of feathered friends just never ceases to amaze me.

I love the Orioles. Beautiful birds and great photos. I have some catbirds going after my grape jelly.

I went to the store to get more jelly and they were out of the huge jars of their brand, a lot of oriole lovers I would say.

OOTP, I had the same thing happen to me, they were out of the large jars of the store brand grape jelly! I bought some off brand, the orioles can't seem to tell the difference :).

That's a very beautiful, colorful bird.
Lovely photos.

Grape jelly! Whodathunkit! If I had some, I'd put it outside now for the robins and see who else turns up to enjoy it.

Michelle said...

I've never heard of feeding them grape jelly. Thanks for the tip. Great pictures. They are such pretty birds!

Lois Evensen said...

I've never heard of feeding them grape jelly, either. I will have to try that when we get home. :)

Lovely shot , orioles are so skittish.Did not know about grape jelly but will try it.

Crafty Gardener said...

Gorgeous photos of the orioles. We have them visiting our garden too.

rmgales said...

Oriole, Maryland's state bird. I live next to Maryland, lol. Beautiful pictures. I never knew birds would eat grape jelly. I just purchased a minature bird bath. It would be perfect in the garden with grape jelly.

Casa Mariposa said...

I've tried to attract orioles twice with zero luck. I'm within their migratory range and saw one once in some woods a few miles from my house. I think my timing is off. I do have a lot of other songbirds, though. Beautiful photos and blog!! :o)

Stunning bird shots!
Thanks for dropping by...

I like grape jelly too!

What a beautiful bird. I've seen only one (1) Baltimore Oriole locally in the 50+ years I've lived in this community. Maybe they're here and shunning me. :)
