Nesting Habits of Orchard Orioles
Orchard Orioles build their nests in orchards, gardens, and suburban areas.
The nests of Orchard Orioles are constructed of grass woven into a cup shape. After lining them with fine grass, plant down, wool and feathers, the Orchard Orioles hang their nests from the fork of a tree branch out on the limb. These nests contain 3-7 Orchard Oriole eggs that are light blue with black markings.
