Baltimore Oriole

Icterus galbula

Description:

Black hood and wings with a bright orange underside and some white striping on the wing feathers. Females are a muted brown or gray with a slightly duller orange on their face and underside. They have black eyes and a gray beak and legs.

Notes:

These are often very shy birds, and are easily spooked. Many people only see glimpses of them. They can be attracted with halved oranges (as pictured), but are also partial to grape jelly! They will also eat suet. There are many types of oriole feeders on the market that are bright orange to help attract them. This is the first year I've had them visit our feeders.
