Baltimore Oriole!

This morning I saw a bluejay and a cardinal in the forest garden.  Then a Baltimore oriole landed on the thistle sock!  They are very rare in this area; I've only seen one a few times, and this is the first time I've seen one at a feeder in my yard.  :D  I was surprised to see him on the thistle sock, though; usually they eat fruit.  At birdfeeders they will come for jelly or nectar.
