It's interesting to see where birds choose to nest in urban areas.
I've noticed an OB Oriole lurking around a park adjacent to the
Brisbane CBD in recent weeks. Today I saw saw it fly to a low perch
and thus discovered its nest - an attractive cup-shaped affair right
beside a path. It was fairly tolerant of people, but flushed at a
distance of five metres when approached along the path. I pointed the
nest out to the park staff in the hope they might be able to reduce
disturbance during the nesting period. They said they would get
advice from WIRES.
