Yesterday I noticed this Baltimore Oriole, Icterus galbula, intent on a few vines. Today I paid closer attention and realized that she is stripping the bark for nesting material. Every year the orioles return and nest nearby.
Remember a couple of years back when we looked at nesting robins? A pair has nested again under the deck, very close to the previous nest. I could pull up some decking for photos but this year choose to leave well enough alone.
