BALTIMORE ORIOLE

16 Comments

There are nine species of Orioles in North America; both the Baltimore Oriole and Orchard Oriole can be found here in the east but I’ve yet to see an Orchard Oriole. This colourful bird usually shows up in May and stays the summer.

  2. We have Bullock’s orioles in my part of the country. Chatterboxes!

  4. This is how I see orioles in spring, sipping nectar from apple blossoms. When we used to have elm trees (ages ago), we’d see oriole nests in them. In May, now we see them briefly, but they seem to continue on north. I haven’t seen one of their nests in years. Times change.

  5. This is an awesome photograph! I enjoy the unusual angle and the setting. We have a Black-headed Oriole that visits our garden regularly: truly one of the most handsome birds – yellow where yours looks more orange.

  7. Are they very vocal too? The orioles that visit during winter around where I stay and very vocal. I love to hear them as well as see their bright yellow colour

  8. I think we had a pair of bullock’s oriole here, just passing through, a couple of times over the years, but they are seldom seen here, and they’re so pretty with their bright colours. They had a distinctive call too, as I remember. You’re so lucky to have these orioles where you live. Beautiful birds.
