Nest Building Streak-Backed Oriole

Towards the end of today’s mountain back ride over the Costa Rican Pacific Ocean hills I found a Streak-Backed Oriole in the process of building a nest. Orioles weave straw and grass on the very end of branches to create a 100% enclosed domicile!

My Canon Sx-60 takes photos at a rate of approximately 7 frames per second. Thus, you are looking at 2 seconds of nest building. This is one very active / busy bird!!! The first photograph is a close-up of the home building Streak-Backed Oriole. The other 13 images are the time lapse photos. (view a 47 second video of the same oriole building it’s nest)
