Description

I discovered the Oriole nest a week before these pictures. It was a steady rotation of the parents in and out feeding the babies. The next day after these images were taken a severe windstorm battered the nest. The next morning the parents came to the tree and called, but there was no feeding activity.

I have a honeysuckle bush that has become the residence of two baby Eastern Kingbirds. The parents spend a lot of time between feeding the young and chasing off interlopers. A grey squirrel learned not to venture too close.
