Bullock's Nest

Yesterday while at the Elkton Community Education Center checking on the progress of the nests I was able to get this shot of the female Bullock’s Oriole and her nest.  I say “her” nest on purpose, because she is the one that builds the nest. It’s partially completed at this point.  We have watched her enter the nest via the hole in the far side and then set about arranging the materials from the inside. About twenty feet below, in the same tree, a female Western Kingbird is building her nest.  We are going to enjoy keeping track of their progress, and or their tolerance of each other.
