Subject: Re: [birders] Best oriole feeder options
I have Orchard Orioles for the first time at my feeders today, along with
the Baltimore Orioles, Rose Breasted Grosbeaks and hummingbirds that
arrived yesterday.

Any explanation for the appearance of Orchard Orioles in places they have
not previously visited?
