Hooded Oriole arrival

2:10 pm

A brilliant male Hooded Oriole in full breeding colors returned for another year today. I believe it is the one from previous years because it was not the least bit afraid of me when I went out to put out worms. It came down very close watching and waiting for me to put some in the dish. It seemed to know the routine already. This does not happen with new orioles, they’re usually spooky for awhile. It then went straight for the sugar water afterwards.
