Baltimore Oriole

June 25, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

The Baltimore Oriole has been a hard bird for me to photograph well although others have had good success.

I had Baltimore Orioles visiting a meal worm feeder early in the morning one winter. I had to get up one hour before sunrise to put out the meal worms under a small lamp to keep them from freezing. The orioles always arrived right after I put out the meal worms. I didn't appreciate the early rising to feed them or ordering meal worms from Ontario. I was nose to nose with the orioles although I couldn't photograph them due to the low light and only a mug would use a flash.

Speaking of flash we have the Southern Flying Squirrel visiting our bird feeders at night again. This is the rare flying squirrel. The Northern Flying Squirrel is larger and more common. The first visits several years ago were announced by our motion activated security light and this time our cats saw them in the dark.
