[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A close up of a Baltimore Oriole on the bird feed in my backyard.

Baltimore Oriole Diet: Natural foods are caterpillars, other insects, blossoms, fruit and berries. They are easily attracted to bird feeders with fruit, jellies, peanut butter, or suet.

Like other backyard birds Orioles love water. A good supply of food and a fresh, clean, birdbath, will keep the Northern Oriole coming back.

Excellent close-up of the head of the Baltimore Oriole... that eye is stunning. TFS


Hallo Kris
Wow this is a real close-up. Not just a small one. A real big and fascinating one. This is a wonderful example of an excellent portrait. The detail of this birdís eye is really marvelous, and the clarity of the fine feathers around the beak area is really great. Thanks for sharing. It was most enjoyable to look at.
Kind regards

Hi Kris,

Very good detail on the beak and face of the bird with this close up. Background is well OOF.

WOW Kris, this is an good shot of the Baltimore Oriole. A well composed image with great details and sharpness. I love the colours of this bird and showing the catch-light in his eye is spot on

Excellent image Kris,
You cant get any sharper or detailed then this!!! The coloration in it's feathers is beautiful.
I have only ever seen a few orioles in our area. We had one nest in one of our trees about four years ago but a cowbird entered the nest a few times and the oriole seemed to abandon it. TFS
