Baltimore Oriole

The Baltimore Oriole (Icterus galbula) is the official Maryland bird. The baltimore oriel has a bright orange body and a black head. In 1894, Baltimore's major league baseball team was named after the bird. Maryland made special provisions to protect the Baltimore Oriole in 1882.

We have an Oriole that found our hummingbird feeder this afternoon. He has been back four times in the last two hours and is draining a normal multi-day supply quickly.
