November 2007 - Hooded Oriole

Hooded Oriole, Icterus cucullatus
The striking Hooded Oriole is found in the deserts of the SW USA, down the Baja California of Mexico and along the Mexican coast of the Gulf of Mexico. They forage in trees and bushes feeding on insects and caterpiller, and sometimes hang upsidedown like a chickadee. The female lacks the strong yellow and black colourations, having a more yellow-green and grey features.

Many thanks to Judy of San Carlos, California for submitting these images.
