Being a semi-noob birder, I'm going to say I'm not 100% sure of what I saw,
never having watched Orioles do this ...
I think I spotted a Baltimore Oriole nest under construction yesterday. With
binoculars I was able to follow a male carrying nest material from the lake
side of the path to the tall maple tree on the swan pen 'island'. He stayed up
there a while and I was able to see the sack-shaped nest as leaves moved with
the wind. I gather the female was nearby or busy building. It will likely be
hidden once the tree finishes leafing out.
The nest is on the north-ish side (facing the lake) of the tallest maple on the
island, a few feet from the top.
