Beautiful Baltimore Orioles...

Although named for a city in Maryland, I seldom get to see these brilliant birds.  My luck changed this year when I located several and an active nest.  I hope to be able to photograph them while they tend their young and observe their interactions.  The first photo is of a female and her nest...


Here is a closer look at the unusual shape of the nest.  It resembles a finely woven hanging basket...


Some photos of the brightly colored male orioles...






Although less brightly colored, the females are also very pretty...





Please visit again...
