Ditto.

Today I saw one eating grape jelly out of my oriole feeder!

At first they were migrant spring visitors to our the blossoming locust trees--feeding on blossoms and nocking them to the ground. After we placed feeders, there have been two distinct flocks of about 20 birds in each. One flock is now around much of the year. The other flock is strictly a spring visitor. They hang out in the locus trees and watch for me to fill the feeders, then surround them, spilling lots of seeds for sparrows and other ground feeders. They are particularly messy in the bird baths!
