I talked to my mom over the week-end and learned that they were greatly enjoying the Woodlink oriole feeders we gave them last year.
She was especially excited to have identified an orchard oriole which is a smaller oriole, about the size of a bluebird.
The picture shows a juvenile male orchard oriole with a well-defined black bib at his throat. As he matures, his coat will turn a brick red. This is the only species east of the Mississippi River with a solid black tail.
Orchard orioles prefer orchards (hence the name) and shade trees in parks and gardens.
My parents has their feeders in a perfect location for both attracting orioles and for watching them. The feeders are placed in a flower garden a few feet from their picture window for great viewing. There are also shrubs and trees nearby for cover and a convenient birdbath for water.
They keep fresh nectar in the feeder with a half of an orange on the top and all the feeding ports full of grape jelly.
Then they just sit back and enjoy the show!
