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!
