    The indigo is a gorgeous bird. We have a pair on our feeders regularly. This week we had 9 Orioles in one sitting. They love some orange slices and marmelade.

    Great pics plugger.

    We have several Orioles also and we feed them grape jelly. The finches even eat it

    I think grape jelly is poisonous to racoons. If they eat it they seem to end up dead in the yard. With two patio doors facing on to the deck the border collies are able to see and tell us if coons or other varmints are on the deck.
