During the summer months, the Baltimore Oriole is found from the eastern plains to the Atlantic coast and from Canada to the southern United States.  It can be seen along wooded edges including urban and suburban areas.  The Baltimore Oriole spends the winter months in Mexico and Central America.

Baltimore Orioles are on average seven inches in length and weigh a little more than one ounce.  The male Baltimore Oriole's underparts range in color from yellow orange to orange and his entire face is black.  His wings and tail are mostly black with white wing bars.  A female Baltimore Oriole may vary in appearance.  Her head and underparts are muted gold while her back, tail, and wings are brown.  She also has white wing bars.

The female creates a nest which looks like a hanging basket in about seven days.  The nest is hung from a few branches by the rim and is made of tightly woven grasses, hair, and other natural fibers.
