This one’s for the birds!

 

 

I witnessed a new phenomenon in my parents’ and inlaws’ backyards this spring – oranges.

Oranges don’t grow in Iowa. 

And these weren’t whole oranges, anyway.

They were cut in half and most of the fruit was missing from the peel. 

I asked my mother in law about it and she said she put them out there to attract orioles.

A few days later, I went over to my parents’ and my dad was on the computer googling “oriole feeder.” 

 

Yep, my in laws and my parents were BOTH trying to attract orioles to their yards.

 

Then, as fate would have it, I got the opportunity to choose one free item from Perky Pet Feeders and  I knew exactly what I wanted – an oriole feeder!

 

I chose the Opus Oriole Feeder for my dad for Father’s Day and he loved it!

  1. Its a shame we don't have such colourful birds in our backyards, then again my cats would spot them even easier than they do already. x
