Here's your orange things in nature fact of the day. I know that any day now I will be charmed by the return of the Baltimore orioles to Ohio. They got their name from the way the male's colors resemble the coat-of-arms of Lord Baltimore. The females build a tightly-woven pouch nest. I'm so amazed by this. I couldn't make something that intricate with my HANDS and they do it with their MOUTHS!! When I was working as a park ranger at Caesar Creek Lake, we found one that was COMPLETELY woven out of fishing line! It would have been indestructible were it not on a branch that had broken off of the tree! #orange #birds #natureclub #baltimoreoriole
