Male Baltimore Oriole investigating an orange
A male Baltimore Oriole. The brilliant yellow, orange and black Icterus galbula is a small blackbird, common in Eastern North America. Its preferred food is ripe, dark-colored fruit and it is easily attracted by orange halves placed on branches. They have a variety of calls, including a distinctive chattering associated with display and territoriality. Here in Minnesota, they show up in groups in the spring.
