Scott’s Oriole

Icterus parisorum

The Scott’s Oriole can be found in the American Southwest. These birds prefer to live in arid regions (deserts and mountain slopes facing deserts). Life for these birds centers on the yucca plant. Thier nests are woven from its fibers and hung on their live leaves. They eat nectar from its flowers and the insects that live on these desert plants.
