Close-up of Baltimore Oriole

I grabbed my camera as soon as I heard Dolly give her little "bird call". I stood right in front of the window at the Wild Birds Unlimited store in East Lansing and took a video of her favorite visitor, the Baltimore Oriole. Miss Baby Doll usually sits up high on top of the candle display to watch her hummingbird and oriole window feeders and they just ignore her. Yesterday for some reason she was sitting on the window sill and that made Mr. Oriole a little nervous. Me with a camera standing right in front of the window, however, didn't seem to bother him.

I have the Oriole feeder hanging from a window hook. It's filled with sugar water and in the little wells in the cover I put the BirdBerry Jelly that can be purchased here at Wild Birds Unlimited. It's so good he'll even overlook a cat and human with their faces smashed against the window watching. Watch the video at: http://youtu.be/CX335cxYeD0
