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.
Food Preferences of Bullock’s Orioles
Bullock's Orioles feast on caterpillars, fruits, spiders, insects and nectar, scoping out trees for these favorites.
Bullock's Orioles are often found at birdfeeders designed for hummingbirds, inspiring Oriole-themed birdfeeders that are orange instead of red. Orange halves also attract Bullock's Orioles.
