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.

    1. 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¦‹

    1. 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

  7. 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.

    1. “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˜‰

  8. 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!

  9. 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…
