On Saturday, at Campbell Park, we saw an oriole's nest with 3 chicks being fed. The nest did look as if it had been damaged in the rain. This morning, no nest in the tree. It was on the ground with 2 dead chicks in it. Sad. I guess that you could say that this breeding attempt failed because of the rain. But think, those parents did successfully stay sitting on the nest, through all that rain. Has anyone seen any other oriole's nest, in the past few days, that has survived completely.

There may be two families of jacky winters at CP. Definitely there are several young birds

We saw the diamond finches again, and also a speckled warbler today

The noise of cicadas is deafening as you go into CP. But birds do not seem to be interested in them. Maybe easy things to eat. Will the cicadas lay their eggs in the bark of the trees there?
