Oriole Overload!


Oriole Overload!

Can you imagine 18 orioles on your deck? Roy and MaryLou Hazelton of Winona, Minnesota, live along the backwaters of the Mississippi River, and see many species migrating through their yard. The orioles know a good thing though, and will stick around, building several nests in the Hazelton’s yard.

Have the orioles reached your neck of the woods yet? If so, how many have you seen so far?

    Saw my first male oriole in the backyard in the afternoon (May 9th) here in MA (east coast side). Had my fresh oranges and
    grape jelly ready for them before their arrival.
    Though noticed, they are a tad later this year!!

    May 2013 have Baltimore Oriole in my area of Holt, Michigan. Have feeder out. Hear singing alot in tall trees behind my home. Had a pair last year also.

    We just had our first Orioles yesterday evening 5-15-13. Got up early this morning to make sure my Oriole feeder stuff was fresh. I’m sure it froze last weekend. They are a bit later this year. Horrible weather last week though. Wonderful Northern Michigan weather.

    The orioles arrived here first week in May. To day we noticed same sized bird but dark grey all over except lighter grey breast eating from oriole feeder. Can anyone help with a name ? We are in southwestern Ontario just SOUTH of Detroit…………thank you
