During spring 2008 maybe around April, I had my binoculars trained on a strange looking what I suspected to be a nest in a tree about 150 yards into the woods. Suddenly an intense orange colored bird with a black head that I had never seen before flew into the view. I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was a Baltimore Oriole and it went into the underside of the nest. Wow. They are supposed to relatively common but this was a first for me.
I looked at the Oriole for as long as it stayed. Since that time, foilage has covered up the nest, making observation impossible.
