I was watching a particularly large selection of birds(see below) at my feeders and while I was 
taking pictures of Rose Breasted Grosbeaks, two and then a third Baltimore Oriole "crashed" into 
one of my Hummingbird feeders and and mobbed it for a minute for all the world like the three 
stooges before they decided it was not the right one, stopped their activity, stretched up, looked 
around, found the oriole feeder and rocketed over to that one to feed. Best free entertainment 
going.

The others(accept the Hummer- who was sure he ran them off) seemed unperturbed by the whole 
episode. This was also a first for Orioles here.
