Adult Male Baltimore Oriole (Icterus galbula)

By teocali
Apologies for yet another Cape Cod bird - an adult Male Baltimore Oriole(Icterus galbula). Orioles are easily attracted to one's chosen "feeding station" by a dish filled with grape jelly (jam) which serves as nectar. It is popular with a lot of other birds too, including the Catbird and the American Robin! The Baltimore Oriole announces his arrival with a very loud squawk before homing in on the grape jelly, which makes him a great subject for photography!

Many thanks for your C&Cs on yesterday's Female Orchard Oriole Smile
