The Baltimore oriole (Icterus galbula) is a remarkably beautiful and vivid bird.

This May has been splendid for Baltimore orioles. It began with the surprise when one oriole landed on the suet feeder. Shortly thereafter there were two.

Two was not a sufficient number. A third Baltimore oriole joined the party.

One or more female orioles hung out deep in the cherry tree. They were somewhat timid in coming forward and preferred dining on blossoms.

A final photo for today: on a wet day, a Baltimore oriole on the serviceberry bush outside my living room doors.

Baltimore orioles are also known as "northern orioles."

Photo note: I used a Pentax K3-II, with the Pentax 150-450mm lens, in early May 2022, for these photos, taken out my living room at Cooper's Pond, State College, Pennsylvania.
