Look high in the trees to see this stunning songbird. With a bright orange and black body, and spectacular song, the males are heard and seen in leafy forests in the spring and summer east of the US Rocky Mountains. The Baltimore oriole is a weaver bird, and the more subdued looking females weave long sack-like nests that hang from tree branches, safe from predators.
Baltimore orioles have a really distinctive song. It’s one of our spring favorites — make it your iPhone ringtone.
