Oriole's Out On A Limb... ©

12" x 20" Acrylic on Masonite Framed

Orioles forage for insects in trees, sometimes sip nectar from flowers. Their nests are woven pouches or hanging bags of plant fibers, suspended from twigs. Rich color and whistled song make this oriole a summer favorite. From the western Great Plains to the Pacific Coast, this oriole is fairly common in summer in the treetops along rivers, lowland woods.Their song is a series of short whistles, chatters, and creaks.
