How to Attract: Baltimore OriolesBaltimore Oriole

The Baltimore Oriole is one of the most brilliantly coloured songbirds in the east. The male is black and orange underneath with an orange rump and has orange shoulders with orange side tail wings. The female is pale olive green above with a yellowish belly and two white wing bars.

 

Baltimore Orioles nest in open woodlands and shade trees. Great nest-builders, they construct their nests 6 to 60 feet above the ground in tall deciduous trees. They will use plant fibres, strips of bark, grass, yarn and string to build their hanging pouch nest.

 

Orioles eat insects and fruit, so they will not come to seed feeders. They will also drink nectar from oriole feeders. If you have orioles in your area, you have a good chance of attracting them to a fruit or nectar feeder in your yard! However, if it is your first time trying to attract them, it is recommended to place the oriole feeder away from any othe feeders in a quiet "corner" of your yard. Once they begin to visit the feeder, you can slowly start moving it closer to the house for a better view.
