This female Baltimore Oriole tugged and pulled and managed to grab the strings near by for her nest. She was a riot (did you know these birds love doing somersaults?) as she managed to cram just about as many strings as possible into her beak – heck with the feeder – she just wanted the strings! lol!
As Is, untouched straight from camera taken last last May as these guys were building their nests. Rumney, NH, May 2009.
