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.
