Orange And Black Baltimore Oriole Making A Nest In Our Yard On Cape Cod

  1. We have many gorgeous orange, black and white Baltimore Orioles hanging about in our yard. We have discovered 2 nests in the nearby trees.

Baltimore Orioles build their nests using materials they can weave as their nests hang down from a branch. We were in the Birdwatcher’s General Store in Orleans the other day when Mike, the owner, gave us a little “horse hair.” He said, “Throw it about your yard and watch the Baltimore Orioles pick it up for their nests. And…we did and…they did! Amazing!

This little guy was flitting about on the ground. I liked how he landed on the rock in the garden. Beautiful bird, don’t you think?
