When should you buy a bird?

When it’s going cheep!

Interesting Fact: Baltimore Orioles sometimes use their slender beaks to feed in an unusual way, called “gaping”: they stab the closed bill into soft fruits, then open their mouths to cut a juicy swath from which they drink with their brushy-tipped tongues.  ( http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Baltimore_Oriole/lifehistory )

  1. I look forward to your posts. There is always humor, an excellently photographed object, and an informative paragraph. By the way, I don’t believe O have ever seen a female Baltimore Oriole.

  2. Here in New Jersey all my life, I’ve never seen a Baltimore oriole. A female goldfinch stopped by today, though. They’re pretty rare around here.
    Come to think of it, I’ve never seen a bluebird, either. Our local avifauna is deficient.

    • All those birds are out there, it’s just hard to come across them sometimes. I haven’t seen a bluebird around here, still waiting on that one. 🙂

  3. always learned something new from your posts. looking forward for more.
