They're so pretty! I haven't seen any orioles here yet. I'm afraid to put out oranges or jelly to attract them. They crashed into my windows a few times last year. I need to find some window decals that don't have Santa or pumpkins on them.

Christie, it didnt look the best, but one year when I couldnt find decals, I cut out the shape of a flying hawk from black construction paper, and taped it to the outside of my big windows. I have a good roof overhang, and it lasted all summer.

I'll try that Christie if I can find a pattern. I still have Christmas gel sticky things because I hate to hear the thuds. I am putting jelly out now. I forgot that they eat that; I still have jars from last year unopened.
