We've had these on and off in our backyard. Never enough for us; they're a beautiful bird.

A couple of days I came home and as I pulled up the driveway my wife came out to meet me. She noticed right away there was an oriole laying in the driveway, practically unconscious.

She picked it up and brought it into the air conditioning while I dug our old birdcage out of the garage and started cleaning it up.

After about fifteen minutes in the cool air and giving it some water with a syringe, we took it back outside and it eventually flew off.

Brilliant bird. Beautiful plumage.

Really nice of you two!! Thanks for doing that.

Orioles are beautiful birds.

In fact, I think all birds are beautiful. Ms Miguel and I message each other picture of all sorts of things. A couple weeks ago, Ms Miguel send me this lovely: King Vulture from South Africa.
