Length: 9 in. (23 cm)
An obvious and beautiful occupant of open yucca and juniper grasslands, this oriole will also enter riparian forest. It eats insects and fruit, but it also fond of flower nectar. Thus it is relatively easy to attract to hummingbird feeders. The nest is a long hanging structure woven from yucca fibers and grass. It is usually placed high in an isolated tree or palm. The four-digit banding code is SCOR.
