Some years the Baltimore Orioles emptied all my feeders every day. I only fill them once a day. 

I saw an Oriole the other day, but it was too big to use the nectar feeders. I’ve been wondering if a jam feeder would bring them around.

If you pull one of the yellow plastic blossoms out of the hummingbird feeder the Orioles can drink from it,

Well worth the effort if you get to see those adorable little humminggbirds! 

The sound they make reminds me of my VW Beetle engine. And I like watching them fly around each other. The Rufous birds show up later in July. That’s when the aerial battles really start popping.

I remember the first time I saw a hummingbird and called my parents to tell them.  They always enjoyed feeding the birds and this was a big deal for a city girl. :nodhead:
