Lives, Habitats & Pictures of the Orioles


The orioles come in a wide range of colourful plumage, from the burnt orange of the Orchard Oriole to the bright orange of the Baltimore Oriole. The female orioles range in a mixture of colours from green, grey and dull orange. All these birds are a joy to listen to and are usually found in the crowns of the treetops, singing their very cheerful songs. The orioles are known for their weaver-style nests, hanging-type baskets that swing in the wind.

There are at least 4 oriole species in North America. The Cuban Oriole is a native bird and the most common, along with the Hooded Oriole. Then there are two migrants, the Baltimore Oriole and the Orchard Oriole.
