Bullock’s Oriole

Bullock’s Oriole

 

The Bullock’s Blackbird was named after William Bullock, an English naturalist.

 

This small blackbird at one time was linked to the Baltimore Oriole as one species, referred to as the Northern Oriole.

 

Molecular research established that other than their visual appearance and similar behavioral traits, the two species are completely different.
