May 5-6--Hooded Oriole in Chilliwack!

A first-summer male Hooded Oriole was photographed coming to a hummingbird feeder at a private residence in Chilliwack. The bird was present multiple times on May 5 and 6.

The location is on private property and there are no public viewing opportunities for this feeder. Birders may get lucky viewing it on Broadway Street between Airport Rd. and Brooks Ave.

The home owner has had no sightings of this bird so far on May 7.

Not your average hummingbird! Orioles are notorious 
hummingbird feeder bandits, but the sight of a Hooded 
Oriole at a B.C. feeder just tastes that much sweeter.
