Oriole Nest

All summer long I have been searching for bird's nests on my almost daily walk to no avail. But recently I stumbled upon this amazing oriole nest that was just a few feet from my path and right at eyeball level! I had been looking way up in the treetops. The construction is quite amazing- a hanging sack made of spider webs, lichen , grasses and who knows what else. Very delicate in appearance, but strong enough to raise a family in!
