Nesting Habits of the Hooded Oriole

After mating, the female Hooded Oriole produces 3-7 eggs which are white with brown spots at the larger end.

The Hooded Oriole nest is a pouch affixed to a tree branch. When the tree is a palm, the Hooded Oriole pushes fibers through, sewing the nest to the leaf.
