Orioles love grape jelly and orange halves..I'm lucky this year to have 2 pair in my back yard I enjoy watching.









Nest Description

Baltimore Orioles build remarkable, sock-like hanging nests, woven together from slender fibers. The female weaves the nest, usually 3 to 4 inches deep, with a small opening, 2 to 3 inches wide, on top and a bulging bottom chamber, 3 to 4 inches across, where her eggs will rest.

She anchors her nest high in a tree, first hanging long fibers over a small branch, then poking and darting her bill in and out to tangle the hank. While no knots are deliberately tied, soon the random poking has made knots and tangles, and the female brings more fibers to extend, close, and finally line the nest.

Construction materials can include grass, strips of grapevine bark, wool, and horsehair, as well as artificial fibers such as cellophane, twine, or fishing line. Females often recycle fibers from an old nest to build a new one.

Males occasionally bring nesting material, but don’t help with the weaving. Building the nest takes about a week, but windy or rainy weather may push this as long as 15 days.

The nest is built in three stages: first, the female weaves an outer bowl of flexible fibers to provide support. Next, springy fibers are woven into an inner bowl, which maintains the bag-like shape of the nest. Finally, she adds a soft lining of downy fibers and feathers to cushion the eggs and young.

Good morning. Raining all night with the things which go along with it. Going to be 95* today and am uncertain of the air conditioner as it blew the circuit breaker on the multi-plug last night. I have numerous plug-ins so I am investigating this. The problems of layout of my Ready Room are too numerous to go into. After years of having a broken wheel on the TV stand, I am thinking of trying to fix it so I can get behind it when I want/have to. To do that it has to be idle so I can empty the thing off and turn it upside down to get one of the wheels out. Rain has seemed to stop after 7 hours of storming. Bring on the Ark. I lost another friend off of my list yesterday. I believe it is because of my movie reviews not being acceptable. Ordered a new memory card yesterday but since they are not delivering the mail for awhile, I shall not receive it unless I go to the post office and beg. I do not need it right now so maybe I shall keep my honor and wait it out. Game time decision. Uncertain of the movie today. If I go, it will be a holdover from last week, which I rejected. Ciao for now and watch your wallet!

If chefs ever prepared food on the Moon, their dishes would surely be interesting, but their restaurants would have no atmosphere.
