Troupial (Icterus icterus) pairs begin to build nest

I have the pair of Troupial (Icterus icterus) since last summer and up until now, they still shy when I come near their aviary.  Few days ago, I noticed that both the male and female start to tear off bit and pieces of leaves and hold in their beaks pieces of small branches, feathers, etc.  so I put some long grasses, bit of vine, small branches, coconut fibers, dried bamboo leaves, etc.  Hopefully after they finish building the nest, they will lay some eggs.  I'm so excited!
