I spent about an hour watching this female Baltimore Oriole. She and her mate fed on ripe Mulberries for about 10 minutes, when, surprisingly, she began weaving a nest as he watched; I guess her instincts had taken over. These photos taken from 40′ in camouflage with a Canon 7D and a Canon EF300L f /2.8 IS with a Canon 1.4 TC – handheld. These photos taken a few weeks prior to my injuries and uploaded this past weekend, There are many photos and they can be enlarged by clicking on each one:

Yesterday, I noticed a pair of Northern Orioles (Baltimore) working together to weave a nest. They were so “deep” into their work that they didn’t notice me only 30′ away. They have been eating mulberries by the hundreds every day; the supply is plentiful on one tree in particular. The female mostly weaves while the male watches.

We are expecting lots of rain and strong storms (possibly severe) over the next 3 days with a slow moving front. There is plenty of moisture in place here; its been so hazy I can’t see the mountains:
