    Today I re-filled the Oriole feeder with Jelly and Oranges. I also placed out a new suet Cake. I went into my shed blind and soon this Oriole came in to the jelly. I went to all my bird books and have concluded that it is a Bullock's Oriole. This bird is not known to be in Florida. It is a rare visitor. My book said that Vagrant come east.

    What a beautiful bird (and beautiful images, too)!

    I like #3 and #5 best, although #1 & 2 helps show the pattern on his wings.

    This is another area of photography that I have taken a swipe at, and not succeeded. Great shots, really!

    How far is your blind from the feeder(s)?
    What camera?
    What lens?
    What settings?


    Thanks!!!
