Topic: Baltimore Orioles

I have a friend in Tuckerton, N.J who has had a male and female Baltimore Oriole as daily visitors to her feeders for the last couple of months. Is this normal for this time of year?

Re: Baltimore Orioles

I've had a pair of "first year" Baltimore orioles since Dec 26.  They love orange halves and grape jelly.

Re: Baltimore Orioles

It seems that every winter there are a few Baltimore Orioles that linger around southern New Jersey.  So while the vast majority migrate (I see tons of them in Costa Rica each winter), it would still be considered "normal" to have a few around in winter.  Nonetheless they are beautiful, wonderful birds (and I don't say that just because I was born in Baltimore) that are worth enjoying and savoring, especially in winter.
