ORCHARD ORIOLE

The smallest North American oriole, the Orchard Oriole is found nesting in shade trees along streams, rivers and lakes, and on farms and parklands. The rich chestnut color of the adult male can be so dark that he may appear all black before you get your binoculars on him.

Orchard Orioles are a southern breeder, found in few locations in Ontario.Β  They are regular nesters atΒ Point Pelee National ParkΒ and often a walk around the Visitor Centre will yield many sightings of this species.
