Georgetown Baltimore Oriole
by Marinus Pater
(Georgetown, Ontario, Canada)
Here are a few recent shots I took of some Baltimore Orioles at the feeder.
The lovely song of the Baltimore Oriole, echoing from treetops near homes and parks, is a sound of late spring and early summer in Southern Ontario.
The male has brilliant orange plumage and you might spot the female weaving her remarkable hanging nest from nearby trees.
These birds love fruit, especially halves of oranges, and nectar from an Oriole or Hummingbird feeder, as well as insects.
