Fluttering feast

I was out at Tyrrell Park in Beaumont one day in the fall when a bunch of these Orchid Orioles (Icterus spurius -- at least that's what I think they are) came fluttering through the trees. There was a stand of trees maybe 300' by 300' and they were scavenging through it, limb by limb, looking for goodies for a meal. After about 15 minutes they were gone -- either full or in search of food elsewhere.
