A BALTIMORE ORIOLE AETER A BATH Photo by Ernest Harold Baynes The Baltimore oriole is remarkable for its bright colors, and to these it owes its name, as the livery of the Lords Baltimore, who founded Maryland, was orange and black of just those tones that the bird exhibits. Cats have been eliminated on this place. A BROWN THRASHER BATHING Photo by Louise Birt Baynes "Water, particularly during the summer months or times of drought, is necessary for the birds. If they can't get it on your place, they will be forced to look elsewhere. The proper installment of a drinking fountain or bird bath is a simple affair, and one that is almost sure to prove a great attraction to the birds, as well as a never-failing source of entertainment to the owner" (see text, page 333).
