Baltimore Oriole

These pictures were taken in our backyard on May 25th 2006. For awhile the Baltimore Oriole was combined with the Bullocks Oriole and was known as the Northern Oriole, but they found that there were significant differences between the two and therefore they reverted back to their former names. Orioles like tall trees bordering on open spaces and are particularly fond of oranges and sugar water in and Oriole feeder, similar to a hummingbird feeder. You may wonder why I have four pictures all on the same Crab apple branch. There just happened to be an orange placed just to the left, but outside the picture. It made for a nice picture but it was difficult to get them to look into the picture.
