After wintering in Central America, these Baltimore Orioles have selected a perfect nesting spot; high in a cottonwood tree. The Female Oriole alone weaves the nest for the brood. It can take her a week or more to construct the sturdy, tightly woven basket. Using grasses, bark, wool and even horsehair, she may recycle some material from previous year’s nests--often still hanging nearby. Both parents will spend a frantic two weeks feeding their young a healthy diet of insects. Well fed, as seen here, the young are sometimes reluctant to leave the nest too soon.
