Spot-Breasted Oriole

Spot-Breasted Orioles, a medium-sized oriole, were primarily residents of Mexico until 1949, when the species was accidentally introduced to southern Florida, most likely occurring when a couple of Spot-Breasted Orioles escaped from a shipment.

Male and female adult Spot-Breasted Orioles have black spots on the sides of their breasts, earning the species its descriptive name.
