Nesting Baltimore Orioles

I found this nest swinging from the outer branch of a large Sycamore tree. 

Having watched at least a dozen parental feeding visits, I saw only the male performing them.

The two chicks were very close to fledging. I'm guessing they left the nest the same day I photographed them, or the day after.

To get these photos required bushwhacking through 30 yards of impenetrable Japanese knotweed (bamboo). Well worth it.
