Usually, these birds like to stay in the shadows of the limbs.

I don't think there are enough nectar bearing flowers this year --

The little bird is stretching which they do quite a lot after sitting for a while.

Oriole at the feeder on June 1st.
The feeder is crooked because it has been broken and repaired several times.
I think that I will look for a jelly feeder for these birds next spring.
