Baltimore Oriole, female and nest, Dyke Marsh, Alexandria, VA. We stopped, coming and going along the marsh trail, to watch this female building her nest. She would fly into the nest and work from inside it for about five minutes. We could see the pendant nest moving and bulging like a sackful of snakes. She had emerged here to chase off an immature orchard oriole.
