Hooded Oriole range

The Hooded Oriole is a tropical bird, seen in the warmer US south and southwestern states. It can be seen right into the southern regions of Mexico. This brightly orange-coloured bird is a regular visitor to backyard bird feeding stations, where it is attracted to hanging fruit and nectar feeders. It has been reported as a very rare visitor to Cuba.
