Baltimore Oriole feeding one of its young.

A Baltimore Oriole adult feeding on of its young at the jelly feeder in our backyard. We get quite a few Orioles at our feeder every summer. This year, the first ones showed up around April 25th, the last one spotted was around September 5th. It’s sort of neat to see the adults come with juveniles in tow to feed them. It takes a while for the juveniles to learn how to use the feeder on their own. It’s interesting to watch. Eventually they figure it out!
