Baltimore Oriole


The Baltimore Oriole measures 7 - 8 1/2 inches long. The male is black with orange underparts, rump, shoulders, and sides of tail. His wings have 2 white wing bars. The female is olive above, yellowish below with 2 white wing bars. This particular Oriole bird is found east of the Rockies. You can hear this bird at the top of trees making its rivals know he's claiming his territory.


The Baltimore Oriole makes its way from Mexico and South America (its wintering grounds), to the US and Canada to begin its mating, nesting, and feeding habits. This particular bird was spotted in a wooded area at a local campground in LaCrosse, Wisconsin.

Thanks Maria. These birds seem to stay high in the tree tops. Hard to get a picture.
