Hooded Oriole Dad Feeding Babies

We can always tell when the eggs hatch since the Oriole parents start making non-stop flights to the nests with insects to feed the hatchlings. This nest is under a Coconut Palm leaf and must be like a roller coaster when the wind blows. We hear the babies cheep cheep cheeping for more food all day long. When their noise stops, we'll know that they flew off. One time the fledglings stayed in our garden for 2 days after fledging. We could find them by their begging sounds.
