Papa Baltimore oriole forages for goodies
This fence is a comfy spot for papa to rest. Orioles like insects as well as fruit and nectar, and here papa seems intent on finding some yummy protein.
Oriole nest hidden in the leafy branches of a quaking aspen
Is the nest empty? Hmmm. It's very quiet.
Papa returns home
Oh, here comes Papa! He arrives quietly...but CamaraGirl spots his orange feathers. It's hard to hide when you're dressed in such bright colours.
Papa jumps into the nest
He jumps in part way. CamaraGirl wonders what he's hanging on to as his tail bobs up and down. He must be feeding Mama as she sits on her eggs.
Papa rests, having done his job well
Good work, Papa!
I am linking to World Bird Wednesday.
Their nest seems unusual. I love his blazing orange chest.
They are such colorful birds, we have the in the area, but I can't get them to come to my feeder, and I've tried everything!!!
A great set of photos. Bird dads are such good providers.
Kathy has reacted as I have...great job, Papa! A wonderful sequence of photos of this lovely bird and his family!
It is amazing that its nest stays in place.
They are a beautiful bird. You really caught some lovely photos of papa!
They are such wonderful birds, and I have never seen their nests before now. What an interesting little creation! This is a wonderful series of photographs!
Sending you wishes for a beautiful day ahead!
What a great set of captures, we have a golden oriole in our garden, identified just by the song as we have never seen them! So you can imagine how envious I am of these. :)
Great series of beautiful photos.
A beautiful bird, we don't have them here.
What an amazing place they have built their nest.
Very sweet!!! :)
Your photography is really fantastic!
I`ve only seen one a couple of times.The nest is something else!You have to wonder how it hangs there,but I`m sure they know how to anchor it well,great pictures!phyllis
Great pictures and I find watching birds is relaxing. And thank you for your blog visit to my own blog. Richard
You captured a wonderful series!
Wow ~ What fantastic photos and such a gift to see and take the photos ~ thanks, ^_^ ( A Creative Harbor)
Wonderful shots! I have a pair that come to my feeder but I can't seem to capture them. I've never seen their nest. You wonder how it can hang there.
Wow - amazing captures!
so pretty! i like their hanging basket nests, too.
Great series, very nice to see!
Wonderful, no Orioles around here, so pretty and great series of shots!
A lovely little photo essay!
You're right - he can't hide in that brightly feathered suit.
What a good daddy!
Fabulous - I love this little series!
That's such a lovely colourful bird and you caught him so well:)Have a great day!
WE get orioles every spring, but they never stay to nest. This year a friend has a nest in her yard ... she lives 40 miles away so I haven't been able to follow it. How nice for you that you get to see all of the ins and outs of thier activity. Can't wait for the babies :). Thanks, wonderful job, as usual.

Besides being a helpful Papa, he is a handsome and colorful bird.
Beautiful captures, Camera girl.
Great series!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
What a great series, showing the nest. Sadly, my Oriole of last week has not come back. :(
What a beautiful little bird.. thanks for the extra information.
Awesome photos. B
An amazing job capturing the bird! Thanks for the visit today. =D
Beautiful bird and a great series of photos.
So nice to see this! Happy WBW to you!
I do like the Orioles. Nice shots.
Good work, E.G.
I haven't seen an oriole in the wild in years so this post was a treat. I just wonder how it got all the way up there from Baltimore?
You're doing some very fine bird pics these days!
That's a lovely story, could be a children's book!
LOL! Very Cute!
such a wonderful series of photographs! that nest is art to me!
Wonderful series and sighting. I would have to watch the oriole at its nest. Great shots.
Beautiful shots and I love the texture!
I love seeing that nest!
Beautiful shots of the nesting Baltimore Orioles CameraGirl. I hope to see some nesting Bullock's Orioles tonight at our annual Audubon picnic!
Great photos of these beautiful birds. The nest looks cozy, but maybe not all that durable. I wonder how it would hold up in a windstorm...
Great, awesome photos. I can't believe you got the nest too. Great!
That nest is amazing! Love the entire set and your (rather suspenseful) narrative! :)
Wonderful captures. Love the nest.
Beautiful picture series you run. Wishing you a great Wednesday :) Hanne Bente
A fantastic nest - good find.
how nice! I did not know they build that kind of nests. The nest seem to be too small for dad. :) Great shots.
I went to Baltimore once and saw these birds everywhere. We also saw a base-ball game and bought some oriole shirts and a cap.
How interesting is that pouch of a nest! I have the Baltimore Orioles visitng my hummingbird feeders everyt day..I also put out sliced oranges for them!I wonder if they are caring for a nest somewhere!
Oh, wow, EG, these are absolutely wonderful!
Baltimore Oriole are so lovely and you got some great images!
