Baltimore Oriole arrives to feed on suet

We've discussed putting out slices of oranges to attract migrating Baltimore Orioles, but before we had a chance to try that, a brilliant black and orange oriole arrived in our Regina, SK, backyard, attracted by suet.

We saw this Baltimore Oriole on and off over three days — but perhaps it's now moved on. Yesterday morning was our last sighting. 

What a lovely sign of spring!
