They're back! It's always amazing to witness the arrival of the orioles and hummingbirds. I had my first sighting of an oriole on Monday and now have three males battling over the Ultimate Oriole Feeder. This is a great all-in-one feeding station for orioles. The nectar goes in the bowl, orange slices on the small plastic spikes and our BirdBerry Jelly in the pockets. You can also offer sliced red grapes in the pockets.
On Tuesday, the hummingbird arrived - one male in my yard so far. He spent a great deal of time at his feeder, not flying away when I was close. If you have a hummingbird feeder, make sure it's out. Changing the nectar every couple of days is important. If you don't have a feeder, come into the store and our staff will help you find one.
