Mr & Mrs Baltimore Oriole

It's been almost eight years that I have not seen Baltimore Orioles. It was last year that I spotted one right above of me when I was taking photos of the Apple blossoms. Right there I believe that they are just around the corner. These year I bought a book from Cracker Barrel about birds and what to expect on a certain month. I also found out what specific fruit or bird food  to put for specific birds. So one day I went to the store and did bird shopping. One thing with Baltimore Oriole they love jellies and oranges and I have plenty of those. For about a week of observing and prying if Orioles came it did. Not just the male Baltimore Oriole but also the female. I read that they are not the kind of bird that very easily go to a feeder and they like to stay on top of the bird and catching a very colorful vibrant orangey color is there weakness. Thankfully, the day before my flight coming to the Philippines a couple came and show there beautiful color and they seem like hungry, lol!

I don't know if these birds are in my area but I wish they were.
Great idea to stick that orange on the hook.

Gorgeous! When we first saw the Western Tanager we thought "oriole" but of course we don't get the orioles here. They look similar. Great photos!
