The male oriole returned several times to the Hummingbird feeder. The male grosbeak also returned, including the female (which I did not photograph) and a pair of goldfinch were here much of the day.

I needed a perch for my most recent backyard visitors and therefore I perused the ACME catalogue figuring that if it served Wiley coyote so well it might also prove of some benefit to me. I sort of knew what I wanted. Something simple, yet elegant and definitely without the need for batteries and without WiFi capability. I wanted something truly Canadian. None of this Made in China nonsense. My search for a perch struck gold when I saw a birch perch. That would be perfect. My birch perch search located just the right length and diameter.
Now installed, both the orioles and the grosbeaks found it to be ... rather adequate. I'm satisfied! Now all I need is more even lighting. Not today ... maybe tomorrow.

The female RB grosbeak does not stay as long as the males.
