Baltimore Oriole

Icterus galbula


"A bird of woodland edge and open riparian woods ... adapted well to suburban landscapes." (Rising and Flood 1998). Baltimore orioles show a strong preference for deciduous over coniferous trees and rarely are found in mixed forests (Rising and Flood 1998). Orchards or shade trees in an open setting form suitable cover (Hammerson 1996), as do deciduous trees along roads, streams, and lakes (DeGraaf and Rudis 1986). Baltimore orioles sometimes use shrub wetlands (Rising and Flood 1998).
