Feather Friday Part 5

Today's Feather Friday birdie is the Bullock's Oriole. The Bullock's Oriole is 8 1/2 inches tall. In my opinion, one of the most beautiful birds to visit our yard. Males are black above with bright yellow below with a white patch on the wings. The females are more olive above and pale yellow below. The main food of the Oriole is insects, but fruit and nectar are also eaten. In winter, orioles are attracted ro oranges, apples and jelly. In summer, they visit the hummingbird feeders that have perches. They are very hard to capture pictures of. They move very swifly. One is sitting in the eucalyptus tree if you can find him. Their nest is a pouch of plants fibers, hair and plant down bound with spider webs and hungs from the tips of twigs and large trees. Maybe their nest is in the eucalpytus??

The Bullock's Oriole is a close relative of the Baltimore Oriole and sometimes interbreed, but they are distinct species. The Bullock's Oriole migrates to tropical America for the winter.

Hope you enjoyed Feather Friday!

That bird is beautiful. It reminds me of our Meadow Lark.
Today my mom and dad saw a female Baltimore Oreole. I hope she stays and gets a mate. They are not very common here.
Thanks for sharing Feather Friday with us.

Don't you like to be a bird?
With those pretty feathers we could fly around the world and leave all our moms behind, freedom and independence at last!
Let's fly up up and away, Rambo!
Love y'all
