I thought the Orioles were gone. August 1 I didn't se any more. Took in my jelly feeders. Then this past Monday one came to the hummingbird feeder. So I the jelly went back out and he has come every day since.

This is my first year feeding the birds in over 10 years. And the first time ever feeding orioles and hummingbirds.

I have not seen an oriole at the feeder since mid-June (but I see hummers daily) and so I left it empty up until about a week ago when I added some jelly, hoping for migrants.

The bees and hornets (and a squirrel) have been eating all the jelly so I stopped the jelly and switched to an orange half.

When I tried oranges in the spring they were left untouched.

This time of year the orange is a big hit with flies and wasps, which is pretty gross. So after dark tonight I was going to throw out the orange and I came upon a Cope's Gray tree-frog on my oriole feeder catching the flies!

I took a (lousy) picture but has not been uploaded to my computer.
