The Orchard Oriole is another bird that we look forward to coming back again in the spring. This chestnut-colored male Orchard Oriole with a black head is just beautiful. Like the Baltimore Oriole, he also loves to eat at our grape jelly feeder. Sometimes people mistake them for a Baltimore Oriole but the Orchard Oriole is much darker. (Click on blog link for photo of the female.)
The 2nd photograph is the female Orchard Oriole. You can see how very different her coloring is compared to the male.
Both are just beautiful, don’t you think? Have you seen an Orchard Oriole yet this year?
