Baltimore Oriole

Icterus galbula

The Baltimore Oriole and the Bullock’s Oriole were once thought to be the same species (Northern Oriole). In 1995 the species was spilt. The Bullock’s being a western bird and the Baltimore an eastern bird, and the two barely look alike.

The breeding range for the Baltimore Oriole is most of the lower Mississippi Valley and northwest into Alberta Canada, and east to New England and Southeast Canada. Some birds winter in Florida and Cuba, but many fly to Mexico and South America.
