Oriole Feeding Chicks

Yay! We finally got footage of the male oriole feeding one of the juveniles. By the way, there is lots of grackle chatter in the background. We have a huge flock that visits our feeders several times each day. They made this oriole chick a bit nervous. In fact, the adult has taken to feeding the chicks in a shrub nearby during many of the daily visits to the feeder. Before this portion of the video clip, papa oriole was feeding the other chick in the shrubbery, too.

We tried out the new video camera and found that it took lousy video. But, we are going to run it through its paces before returning it. Maybe it's just user error...So, sub par video, but at least you can tell that you are seeing birds;-)
