A few more from my visit to Sapsucker Woods last weekend. ┬áThere’s no doubt that nesting season is here – the Yellow Warbler and Rose-breasted Grosbeak in my last post already had nests constructed and eggs laid, and these Orioles are well on their way, judging by the nesting materials the female was carrying.

Of course her mate wasn’t far away – he kept an eye on things from a perch in a nearby maple.
