It’s that time of the year when the Baltimore Orioles build their intricate nests high up in the trees. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
Their nests are a woven, hanging nest so they need materials which they can weave. Thus, the sisal twine. I cut short pieces of it and then separate the many strands.
The Baltimore Orioles, as well as many other birds, pick it up off the ground and use it to weave their nests. It has been so much fun each spring watching these colorful Baltimore Orioles build their masterpiece nests. They are just amazing!
