Re:[cayugabirds-l] [cayugabirds-l]Oriole/mockingbird Conflict Suggestions

Have you tried multiple feeding stations? Far apart.
Actually my Baltimore orioles probably chased away the Orchard orioles that 
were here a while ago!

Just a note to those who took the time to offer ideas and encouragement

some upcoming painting of our deck. We’ve placed additional oranges in a 
different spot and think they may have already visited them. The new location

The Oriole was really enjoying the suet feeders today.  That's a first for
my feeder.  I did place a half of an orange on our feeder.  No interest in

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Oriole

2020-05-03 Thread khmo
It seems Orioles descended upon the Mecklenburg area this noon. We are
just uphill and southwest of Ken's.  While watching and adult male
Baltimore on an orange we almost dropped our lunch when, at first blush
a bird that looked like a very lost male Audubon's Oriole flew in to
displace the first. In and out of the Quince bush of course but Sue
finally got a few decent shots confirming what we believe to be a very
unusually yellow Baltimore Second year male with full black hood. To add
to the excitement we also had Western Palm, Yellowthroat and House Wren
arrive today. Yellows, Blue-headed Vireo and Catbird yesterday following
the Friday White-crowneds which were singing this morning. (eventually
will post the yellow oriole on my FB page).

Re: [cayugabirds-l] oriole

2018-05-17 Thread Melanie Uhlir
Yesterday in the crabapple collection I got to see another gorgeous 
oriole and also got an all-too-brief but conclusive glimpse of a 
Magnolia Warbler. Heard but not seen were a Common Yellowthroat and a 
Yellow Warbler. Many robins were about. I saw one swallowing a food 
item. He didn't even notice me. Must have been a good snack!

Both male and female Baltimore Orioles can be pretty variable in coloration. 
I've watched many orioles, and I've seen yellow-looking males, and at the other 
extreme, I've seen quite male-like females. There is currently a pair nesting 
in the Newman Arboretum of which the female is very orange, dark-headed and 
confusingly male-like (yes, I've seen the male of the pair and he is even 
brighter!). In my experience the comparative blackness of the head (male) and 
presence of brownish coloration on the head and back (female) are good ways to 
tell them apart conclusively.

Enjoy these gorgeous birds!

We have our first oriole, a very pale, almost yellow male - it has a black hood 
but otherwise looks more like a female. I haven't seen this pale color in an

RE: [cayugabirds-l] oriole

2018-05-16 Thread Marie P. Read
Both male and female Baltimore Orioles can be pretty variable in coloration. 
I've watched many orioles, and I've seen yellow-looking males, and at the other 
extreme, I've seen quite male-like females. There is currently a pair nesting 
in the Newman Arboretum of which the female is very orange, dark-headed and 
confusingly male-like (yes, I've seen the male of the pair and he is even 
brighter!). In my experience the comparative blackness of the head (male) and 
presence of brownish coloration on the head and back (female) are good ways to 
tell them apart conclusively.

Enjoy these gorgeous birds!

We have our first oriole, a very pale, almost yellow male - it has a black hood 
but otherwise looks more like a female. I haven't seen this pale color in an 
oriole before.

[cayugabirds-l] Oriole Feeders

2018-05-06 Thread W. Larry Hymes
A couple days ago Sara Jane put out an Oriole feeder with jelly.  We 
just had a pair of BALTIMORE ORIOLES partake of the jelly -- 
raspberry!!  I'm assuming the flavor of jelly doesn't matter.  But those 
of you who have a long history with using jelly to attract Orioles, have 
you found any significant preferences?

The Ruby-thoated Hummingbirds found the newly offered feeder and a male was

An Baltimore Oriole nest is complete in clear view  (nice for us, maybe not for 
the oriole) off a cherry branch.  Not sure what stage, but males have been 
competitive for days.

A Black-billed cuckoo has been calling today, first this morning, and now again 
this evening. Hadn’t heard it before today.

A Willow Flycatcher is back exactly where one sang last year.

And the Mourning Doves are incubating their third (I think) clutch in our 
garage, this time right on top of my field equipment.  Fortunately most of the 
equipment in current use is in my car.

Oh—and last night I saw fireflies for the first time.

[cayugabirds-l] Oriole nestling observations

2014-06-15 Thread Nancy Cusumano
An oriole couple built one of their hanging nests right over our house. It
was a joy watching her knit it out of grass and hair and such, and watching
the beautiful male sing to her while doing so,

Babies have hatched -there are ate least 4, maybe 5 in there, a tight fit.
I set up my scope today to watch the action. They are about a week old now
I would guess, all heads come out of the nest for insects, one obviously
larger and older than the others. The male brings the food - caterpillars
or other insects. I watched him trying to feed what looked like a tomato
horn worm to his young. The thing was so huge none of them could eat it.
The dad wound up breaking it up into pieces so they could eat it.
The mom spends time grooming the nestlings - removing bugs maybe, and
wiping them on her breast, or else wiping oils from her breast onto them.
She dives head first into the nest cup, not sure what she's doing down
there - cleaning up after them? Or?
All that shows when she does this are the tips of her wings, pointed
sky-ward, and her tail.

It's so much fun watching these behaviors you never get to see. Others are
welcome if you want to watch, but I bet they will be fledging in a week or
so.

[cayugabirds-l] Oriole

2014-05-22 Thread Carol Keeler
It's been a very interesting morning watching the bird feeder area while I ate 
my breakfast.  The newspaper isn't nearly as entertaining as the birds.  The 
female oriole has been coming in to get nesting materials from a grapevine 
growing up the back of the shed.  She seems to be breaking off the dried ends 
of the grapevine.  I noticed her in another area out back yesterday gathering 
dried grasses. (Much of my two acres is left wild for the wildlife ). The male 
has come by as well, but perhaps to check on her.

I had two new birds under my feeders- a pair of Mallards.  I had watched them 
waddle up my neighbors lawn from the creek.  They ate, than bathed under some 
bushes in a poorly drained area.  

My White Crowned Sparrows may have left.  I haven't seen them today, but they 
were here yesterday.  I'm just seeing Chipping and Song Sparrows.  Every time I 
think the WH CR have left, they show up.  

I've got a female Robin who's got it in for a Blue Jay, probably with good 
reason.  Every time the Jay shows up, she's hot on its tail, which she's 
connected with, with a flurry of white tail feathers.  There's a squadron of 
four male House Finches that zooms about the yard going everywhere together.  
I'm not sure if there's a female in the mix which would explain all the frantic 
chasing.  

If I sit in the window and watch, I won't get anything done, but I do enjoy it 
so.

[cayugabirds-l] Oriole/ Catbird confrontation

2013-06-10 Thread Carol Keeler

I had a confrontation between my resident male Oriole and Catbird over the 
jelly feeder.  Hanging  off my deck are two pairs of feeders.  One is for the 
Hummingbirds and is lower.  The other hangs higher and is a jelly feeder.  
While I was eating my breakfast the normally quiet Oriole was doing a lot of 
vocalizing so I went to peak out just to see the normally allusive Oriole.  
Perched on the bar above the jelly feeder was the Catbird, who was silent.  On 
the lower hummer feeder was the Oriole.  The Catbird had its wings 
outstretched, and was leaning forward in what I took as a threat posture.  The 
Oriole kept vocalizing, but gave up and flew off.  I've fed the jelly for years 
now and that's the first time I've seen any confrontation between any of the 
bird species that come.  It was really cool to see.

[cayugabirds-l] oriole behavior

2013-06-04 Thread Anne Clark
I wonder if anyone can comment on the usual description of oriole nesting as 
only the female weaves the nest.  I have a youngish adult male (slightly 
graded color in his breast, a bit of edging on back feathers, but pretty 
brilliant overall) at my house near Freeville.  He has been defending territory 
for weeks.  No female seen hanging with him, although I thought I saw one or 
two fly through earlier.  But starting 2 weeks ago, the male was landing in one 
particular spot and I soon realized he was carrying material in his 
bill...short tree flower stems mostly, I thought.  And slowly a nest has 
emerged.  It is n't very pendulous, being more tucked into a spot with fine 
branches.  It looks typically woven from the side I can see.  

So--I think he built it himself.  If I am wrong, he started it and a female 
finished it and is always inside!  

Does anyone know of  males building in the absence of females?  The only other 
oriole using the tree is an even younger, but definite male.  They chatter at 
each other, and the younger one has tried a few song fragments.  The original 
male drives him off sort of, but they also associate more peacefully.  The 
second is showing no signs of interest in the nest site.  I have seen 
associations between young and mature male redwinged blackbirds on the mature 
male's territory, an uneasy relationship, but the mature male seemingly not 
wasting time continually driving the other off. This is how I would 
characterize these two.

So--comments?  I have pictures of males, nest including, I think, as he was 
beginning to make it.
