This gorgeous male oriole is a recent spring arrival to our neighborhood in Penticton, BC Canada. He was tasting the hummingbird feeder, then flew to our row of native chokecherry shrubs in the backyard. I planted those and other berry shrubs to attract birds and they are at eye level with our upper deck. Besides being a great bird magnet they are a nice backdrop for photos.
