Scott’s Oriole, a medium-sized New World Oriole, was named in honor of General Winfield Scott, a Union Army General during the Civil War.
Unfortunately, the Scott’s Oriole is showing a population decline throughout its United States breeding area. The suspected culprit, as is frequently the case, is destruction of the Scott's Oriole habitat.
