Going Orange....

You have heard of Going Green.......
Well today I am Going Orange.....
Every year I put out Oranges to attract
the beautiful Orioles, but sometimes get other
birds that come.
While going through my hard drive...yes I'm still at it.
I saved a bunch for you to see.

I'm glad I got Mrs. Redbelly she seems to be shy and
doesn't show up as often as Mr.

I suspect she may have been feeding young by the big
mouthful of fruit in her mouth.

Catbirds are a welcome treat at the feeders... They
are not only pretty but have a lovely song to serenade

Now this is what I was hoping for... male Baltimore Oriole

Have a Great Day Blogger Friends

Beautiful. Just beautiful.

I like your idea of putting the orange halves on the ends of tree branches.

I love catbirds too and agree that their songs are wonderful.

Oh, this a great series of photos! Love the red-bellies eating from the orange halves! I have not been successful getting a Baltimore O. to my backyard yet! Thanks for sharing :)

It is funny that you posted pictures of the red bellied woodpecker eating oranges today. I just started getting a red bellied at my feeding station and did some research on this bird and read that they liked oranges.

I have some clementines and I peeled it and put the sections in a coconut feeder of mine. I had my doubts on whether they actually liked oranges and then I found your blog post and have solid evidence!!

Love the orioles. I have them in my yard from June to August. They LOVE Mullberries and I have a tree full of them.

Great pictures.

So funny to see that red-belly with at mouthful of orange pulp! Good shooting! That was the year I came to love the catbird at the oranges!

HANNIBAL said...

The shots were terrific!

I especially loved the female red belly!

What really caught my eye was the varied posts you used to mount your oranges!

Good luck next year!
