Lucky shot! Caught a female Lesser Goldfinch coming in for a landing on the platform of the male Baltimore Oriole’s grape jelly. He seems to be watching her closely, guarding his treat.
This is the 2nd year in a row, same week of September that I’ve seen Baltimore Orioles in my backyard during their fall migration. Saw a female a couple of weeks ago. Same thing last year. Perhaps the females migrate earlier than the males?
