The Black-naped Oriole nesting

The Black-napped Orioles are known to build their nests on low tree branches oblivious of human presence. The adults are generally very shy and would 'take-off' at the first sign of human intrusion. However when nesting their courage seemed to increase somewhat, probably out of the need to constantly bring food to the chicks in the nest. From chick to a fledgling takes all but 3 weeks.

Have a nice day! Cheers!
