It was like a burst of sunlight, when the Baltimore Oriole
appeared. His head, neck, back, and upper tail were all black.
His wings were black with white tips. His underparts from his
neck to the end of his tail were bright orange. You couldn't keep your eyes off of him as he ate the berries. He appeared
mostly at the end of the day. It was apparent that he ate
berries as well as worms and grubs.

You sure have captured a lot of excellent bird photographs! Thanks!

Baltimore Orioles prefer ripe, dark colored fruit and 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 brush-covered tongues.
