This is a tale of a Baltimore Oriole Feeder sans Baltimore Orioles.
When we vacation on the Cape I always visit the Bird Watchers General Store to see what items I might purchase for my feathered friends. A lot of people I know have great luck attracting Baltimore Orioles with orange slices and specialized feeders. After looking at some flimsy plastic feeders I settled on this glass and iron one which seems indestructible. So far no Orioles but this Gray Catbird seems to like it.
This weekend I’m shopping for oranges so this saga is not finished.
Naturally it figures that my nemesis would have a taste for grape jelly.
This fellow was actually licking the jelly off his paws. Still waiting for an Oriole.
