Yeah, that would've been ideal, wouldn't it? But orioles here love to nest in cottonwoods; cottonwoods have huge leaves that provide shelter and cover for the nest. They also get in the way of photos... -?

Great pics. Any idea what the little red berries are they're eating on?

Where were you when taking these shots?
Could be holly berries or cottoneaster.

Thanks, Chris... these were shot in Chehalis, WA. I believe they're elderberries...

Very nice!

How did you get the camera up to nest level?

Thanks, George! The nest is in a tree next to a river, and by standing on a bridge, I can get a fairly decent view even though the nest is actually still about 10 feet higher...
