This oriole often builds its nest in orchards, hence, its name the Orchard Oriole.
The Orchard Oriole is a small species of blackbird loosely territorial and a bit solitary. In areas of dense nesting, such as urban areas, one tree may contain multiple Orchard Oriole nests.
Food Preferences of the Orchard Oriole
The Orchard Oriole eats the common Oriole diet of insects, spiders, nectar and fruit. Perching near the ground, the Orchard Oriole will seek out insects among leaves and twigs.
When insects are not abundant, the Orchard Oriole will gather nectar from oriole feeders and flowers. The Orchard Oriole does act as a pollinator for tropical trees, carrying pollen on its head from flower to flower.
