Audubon's Oriole: Large oriole with yellow-green upperparts, black hood extending onto upper breast, and lemon-yellow underparts. They range in size from 6-21 inches in length. They vary in color from the glossy black of blackbirds to the bright yellow and orange of the oriole. Our male orioles have striking plumage of black, yellow, orange and white, and even the duller females (sorry, ladies) are beautifully colored in muted yellow, green and olive. They also have long rounded tails and longish necks. Wings are black with a single white bar and white-edged feathers. The orchard oriole is the smallest oriole in North America and is common throughout the Midwest and East, though you may not see it as often as the Baltimore because it rarely visits nectar feeders. The rich, whistling song of the Baltimore Oriole, echoing from treetops near homes and parks, is a sweet herald of spring in eastern North America. Swift and direct flight with rapid wing beats low under the canopy. Underparts range from dull yellow to flame orange. In the arid Southwest, few birds stand out as brightly as the male Scott’s Oriole, which lights up the desert's earth tones with rich lemon-and-black plumage. The bill is curved slightly downward, more so than in most other orioles. Underparts range from dull yellow to flame orange. Oriole feeders are similar to hummingbird feeders, except they are orange instead of red and have larger perches since orioles perch while feeding, while hummingbirds mostly hover in front of it. Following close behind are the pale yellow females. Look for a thin, sharp, silver, gray, or black bill with a wide base. It is a medium-sized oriole (22 cm in length) with a relatively long tail. Hooded Orioles are fairly large songbirds with longer and more delicate bodies than other orioles. Look for them starting in mid-March. The Yellow-tailed Oriole is a striking black and yellow bird of Panama’s swampy lowlands.

They have strong, pointed conical bills and long, pointed wings. Black and brilliant yellow-orange flash across the sky when male Hooded Orioles dash through open woodlands and yards of the southwestern U.S. Hooded orioles are orange-yellow and blackbird-sized, and they migrate north each year to the Western U.S. from Mexico and Central America. Following close behind are the pale yellow females. The Eurasian Golden Oriole has wide range and occurs in numerous protected areas in both breeding and non-breeding range. Sometimes called "palm-leaf orioles," these orioles "sew" their hanging nests onto the undersides of palm fronds. Nearby, you might spot the female weaving her remarkable hanging nest from slender fibers. Vintage Oriole Gas Stove -- Antique Price Guide Details Page.
