The Golden Boys~

are back,

at The Holler!

The golden girls are too.

This guy is a Bullocks Oriole.

All the rest are Hooded Orioles.

They are amazingly fun birds to have around,

because they have such comical personalities.

They head-bob, bicker, play and people watch.

Cheers to you from the handsome Holler orioles~

  1. The are handsome indeed! Orioles in Dutch is ‘Wielewaal” We got this song: ‘Kom mee naar buiten allemaal, dan zoeken we de Wielwaal;’, meaning: ‘Come on you all, let’s get outside and search for the Oriloles. When we find that music maker, spring is back in the land.’ πŸ™‚

  2. We had a Bullock’s oriole here one time, so I guessed that this was some sort of oriole, but what wonderful photos you got of these brightly coloured birds. Fantastic photos, Cindy.

    • Great idea. They love oranges and grape jelly. If they are around, and you have this for them, they will be your dining guests for the season. Good luck! დ

  3. There are Holler Orioles and there are Baltimore Orioles. πŸ˜‰ I like the Holler Orioles more. Great pictures, Cindy. ☺ πŸ‘

  5. They are beautiful. But just a side note…is there any beautiful bird that ‘doesn’t’ go to the Holler, they are all birds of paradise. You and your camera must suffer so much Cindy πŸ˜‚ 🀣 ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  7. The lovely golden boys and girls beautifully captured by the Au-some photographer. Lol! ( β€’ΰ₯’β—‘-ΰ₯’)-❀️❀️❀️

  8. When I first saw the “girl” I was thinking lesser goldfinch, but the shape was all wrong. We don’t have orioles up here – wish we did.

    • Their coloring is very similar though. I make the same mistake. They are really fun birds to live with because they are continuously bickering and bobbing and chattering at each other! დ

  9. Orioles are lovely critters, Cindy, and I thank you for showing them up close to us. For some odd reason, I don’t see too many here. Guess I should research that when I get some time.

    • “He’d fly through the air with the greatest of ease
      A daring young man on the flying Trapeze
      His movements were graceful, all girls he could please!” πŸ˜‰

  10. Cheers to you!! Thank you for bringing us these gorgeous pictures!! I have a friend who loves watching birds, and I am going to send her this post! Happy, Happy Easter Cindy! I so appreciate all the encouragement you’ve given me!

  11. Wonderful. You must have a great camera to go with your keen eye.
    We just saw a yellow and black bird in the garden, last week. To far to identify… I’ll see if it comes back…
