This Baltimore Oriole spent quite a bit of time feeding from the hummingbird feeder. Although the feeder port is quite small – perhaps 3-4mm wide – it was definitely able to feed; I saw it swallow several times. It is setting up ‘housekeeping’ nearby; I hear it singing throughout the day

Focus is a little soft, as I took this through the screened kitchen window.

First sighting

First sighting

Yesterday we saw the first Ruby-throated Hummingbird of this season. This male visited our feeder during a very blustery afternoon. It is still around today. They are such incredible and intrepid animals, flying such distances. I posted my sighting on the Ontario Hummingbird Project web site.
