Nesting Habits

Nesting Habits of Altamira Orioles

 

Solitary nesters, Altamira Orioles average 800 feet between nests. They are not known to be territorial despite this spacing, showing little or no aggression during mating season. Altamira Orioles are seasonably monogamous and may be so for life, since this species is almost always seen in pairs.

 

Typically 2-6 in a nest, the Altamira Orioles' eggs are a pale, bluish-white hue with purple and black splotches. Incubation lasts for 12-14 days, carried out by the female Altamira Orioles.

 

The Altamira Orioles' nests are the longest of any North American bird. These pouches made of fibers and roots can be found hanging in the fork of tree branches or from telephone wires and can reach up to 25.5’ in length.
