What a wonderful Mother’s Day treat, watching this beautiful female Orchard Oriole preparing to become a mother herself. I was walking in the backyard of my Northern Kentucky home, taking in all of the sights and sounds of Spring. A flash of yellow-orange caught my eye. As usual, I had my Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera with me and got to photograph her amazing nest building skills. She would swoop and dive, flutter and twist. In just minutes, I could see the nest pouch taking shape. This is an experience I won’t soon forget.
