[Mnbird] unexpected nighttime feeder visitor

This is my first year feeding the birds in over 10 years. And the first
time ever feeding orioles and hummingbirds.

I have not seen an oriole at the feeder since mid-June (but I see hummers
daily) and so I left it empty up until about a week ago when I added some
jelly, hoping for migrants.

The bees and hornets (and a squirrel) have been eating all the jelly so I
stopped the jelly and switched to an orange half.

When I tried oranges in the spring they were left untouched.

This time of year the orange is a big hit with flies and wasps, which is
pretty gross. So after dark tonight I was going to throw out the orange and
I came upon a Cope's Gray tree-frog on my oriole feeder catching the
flies!

I took a (lousy) picture but has not been uploaded to my computer.
