Altamira Oriole

This picture was taken on February 12th, 2009 at Bentsen Rio Grande Valley State Park, Mission, Texas. They are solitary nesters and will nest at least 1/4 of a mile from other Orioles even though they don't seem to fight over territories. There nest is a basket style nest that is sometimes up to 25" deep.
