Finch On The Feeder(s)

 
This guy seems to think he is a Baltimore Oriole!
But, he's House Finch (Haemorhous mexicanus), a bird in the finch family Fringillidae.
 
 
After sampling the grape jelly, he returns to the more familiar fare.

  5. Karen, he is beautiful! I've tried piercing fruit on my fleur de lis shepherd's hook, but not even any looks. You did a great job capturing this vibrant bird. :)

  9. It's almost time for me to put the seed out again. I read that birds will try something a few times before they continue to eat it. Like we acquire a habit.

  26. Oh so cute! I love the orange/jelly feeder. I've heard that orioles like oranges. (We don't have those birds here...maybe if I put them out we'd get them ;>).. at least it'd be a special treat for the finches (those we have).
