Baltimore Orioles

Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting a friends very famous yard, north of Pike Lake where we were treated to excellent views of 15 newly arrived Baltimore Orioles and 3 Cape May Warblers that were enjoying slices of orange that was set out for them.
The following day, I looked out of our kitchen window and saw a male Oriole in our apple tree, so I went outside with some orange and hoped he'd come back ( which he very kindly did, and stuck around till near dark )

Here are the photos from our yard :

Wow, these are very nice pictures Nick. This bird is so beautiful and the green background contrasts so much with its colors! It gives very nice shots. Well done mate!
