No sooner did I write that I was anxious for the arrival of the Baltimore Orioles than I heard their song a few hours later. They’ve officially arrived in Monona!

So my Baltiomore Oriole feeder is up and I put strawberry jelly and orange wedges in it.

They prefer grape jelly but that will have to wait until the next trip to the store.

I’m not yet to the point where I’ll make a grocery store trip just for the birds…although if that’s what it would take to make the white-throated sparrows visit here, I would do so in a heartbeat.

The white-throated sparrows didn’t stop by Monona this year on their way up north like they always do every April.  I even went to the prairie area in the arboretum, a spot they favor, but I couldn’t find any there either. Oh the rejection. :(
