Congatulations to Ronald of Toronto for this wonderful photo of a very industrious Montezuma Oropendola. In Ronald's own words:
When: Morning of February 15, 2013 while on a Quest Nature Tour of Costa Rica led by Gavan Watson
Where: On the grounds of the Arenal Observatory Lodge
Why: The huge hanging nests of the Montezuma Oropendola require a lot of maintenance. After seeing a group of them working on their nest, I followed them to the source of their building materials. It was a sorry looking palm tree. This ambitious bird seems to have bitten off more than it can handle, but it successfully made off with its cargo.
