My Girl!!

 She still comes every day, here she is on March 18th,
surrounded by frosted flakes,

 and her "tastey" jelly as well!

 She has a few favorite spots in the trees...

 and is doing very well here on her own.

 On March 26th, it snowed...

 I'm not sure if she had ever seen snow before she came to New Jersey.

We cleared her a spot, loaded her up with jelly and she was just fine.

Here she is on March 30th,
 
she still favors the jelly, over the orange.

  When she's out of jelly,

 she flies in to this tree and waits for me to come out and fill it.

 She watches every move I make and as soon as I finish filling her up,
before I am even back in the house...

she returns to the deck and enjoys her jelly!!
She prefers grape!!
 
She is still all alone, except for the hubs and I...
she made it through the winter, fingers crossed, she stays with us forever!

  2. Those Orioles are so beautiful...We get them here too. They'll start arriving around the middle of May. Can't wait! I know they love oranges and grape jelly - I better stock up.

  13. As you are finding out, birds are incredibly smart. I've had birds as pets for almost my entire life, and I am not sure where the term "bird brain" comes from. Just like a dog or a cat, they are very, very good at training you! :-)

    This little one knows where she's got it good. She won't be going anywhere real soon.

    She is just adorable, Debbie.

  15. Hi Debbie... Poor baby, while her family is basking in the warmer weather somewhere she is left here in the snow!!
    She knew just who to seek out, that nice couple with the soft heart, and "Grape Jelly"!! : )
    Ya the jelly is a fave over oranges!!
    I have had them eat orange flavored suet cakes too when they come back in the Spring!

    Bless you
    Grace

  28. She's a darling for sure. You have some great pictures of here. I do feel a little sad that she is (alone) without her own kind but you are taking very good care of her.
    I am just amazed that birds eat jelly. I've never left any out to see if the sparrows would eat it.
