Grape Jam

A friend of mine from Elkader recently reported the stores in Clayton County were running low on grape jam.  This comes during a time when Baltimore Oriole's are flocking to hummingbird feeders and grape jam feeders by the dozens. Several avid birder's in the county have reported seeing the most Oriole's in years, one couple reported they needed to fill their grape jam feeders nearly 4 times a day!  The less common Orchard Oriole has also been spotted at several jam feeders. So now is the time to brighten up your day! Set some grape or rasberry jam out in a small container and watch the color come your way.
