Years ago I found out from a neighbor that I had Baltimore Oriole nests in my Silver Maple trees for many years. At this time I had lived in my home a long time but this was the first time I heard this and was so excited. The sad part is the nests were gone by this time.
When I ran across this picture I flashed back to what I heard. I wish I would have known about my nests at the time, but I am still fortunate to know these beautiful birds were a part of my home's history.
