Like hummingbirds orioles love to consume sugar water from a feeder. Colorful visitors to coax into one's yard. The one shown here is a Baltimore Oriole, an eastern, North American, migratory breeding bird and -- State Bird of Maryland.
Bird watching - Feed them fresh fruit - Baltimore Orioles love oranges and Cardinals love grapes. Orioles love grape jelly too and if you put out either one, woodpeckers really like them too. Butterflies like them too.
The Baltimore Oriole (Icterus galbula) [pix-male] is a small icterid blackbird that averages 18 cm long and weighs 34 g. This bird received its name from the fact that the male's colors resemble those on the coat-of-arms of Lord Baltimore.
