First Oriole of 2011!

Two weeks ago I spotted a female oriole near a feeder by the kitchen door.  She was here for a minute, then flew away and I haven't seen her since.  I have been keeping all of the Oriole feeders full and so far the hummingbirds are very happy.  Then on Tuesday the BirdCam took the first pictures of an oriole for 2011.  Here is a 45 second video of a female oriole getting her fill of nectar.

Hopefully she will stick around and her mate will show up soon, so that they can set up house for the summer.
