    The young orioles have been here for at least a week. They are just so inquisitive, flying onto the hummingbird feeder, sitting on just about anything they can find. I have even had one bathing and drinking from my small bird bath...

    Obviously word has got around that there's always something interesting in your garden. They certainly seem to be enjoying themselves at the feeders that's for sure.

    Raddang...I have squirrels too but I feed the Orioles right outside our bedroom window. The squirrels don't come that close to the house usually because we have dogs. My lab wouldn't hurt a flea but the little Chihuahua likes to chase things, not sure if she would harm a squirrel or chipmunk.
