BIRD'S FROM OUR BALCONY

Baltimore Oriole

The Baltimore Oriole is a familiar inhabitant of neighborhood woodlots and is often heard whistling from tall shade trees along city streets. Both sexes sing, although the female's song usually simpler and is normally heard only during the early courtship phase. Song is made up of rich, slurred whistles that have a distinctive quality. Some songs contain one or more harsh notes. Each bird has a stereotyped song pattern but may vary song length.
