Oriole Momma

Memorial Day seemed a good time to hang the hummingbird feeder for the first time this summer. Ed's been hearing the hummers as they do their Star Wars land speeder trips from cedar tree to cedar tree.

Lo and behold, the momma orioles found the sugar water quickly. Here's one, clinging to the circular perch and savoring the sweet treat of fresh hummingbird nectar.

At first glance we thought this bird might be a female goldfinch, but then the longer tail and bright song said, "oriole momma!"
