Every year we get visitors that move in and make themselves at home. No.... its not anyones relatives. But a pair of orioles.
We noticed them about 4 years ago and they have been returning ever since. Finding their nest is no easy task. They manage to hide it among the leaves. But we found it with the help of supplies we "donated" for their building material. Hubby cut up some yellow string and they found a blue tarp to use.
It's hard to see but hiding in among the leaves is their nest sack. Not the usual nest of twigs but of string and other things woven into the nest that hangs from the branches.
I'm hoping no wind storm damages it as it did one year. I could have cried when I seen it torn to bits and their precious eggs broke. I'll try and keep you posted with pics on when it babies. The are so fun to watch. Till then I will enjoy my roses that just started to bloom.
Hello and welcome! I'm a forty-something wife, mom and work full time plus. I have always been in love with vintage romantic things. My most favorite thing is the victorian era.In my spare time I love to go to yard sales and antique stores. I'm always on the search for my next treasure and hope you take the journey with me.
