If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr) of the Baltimore Oriole. Baltimore Oriole females generally weave their gourd-shaped nests alone, without help from the male. About 4 to 5 eggs are laid, with incubation done solely by the female. The baby orioles hatch about 12 days later, helpless and naked. Both parents feed the nestlings, though the female does all of the brooding.
