    Baltimore Oriole / Icterus galbula

    : mid May to mid Jul especially in towns with large deciduous trees but also in open deciduous forests. No confirmed breeding records.

    : to and mid May-early June with from late Apr, and again mid Aug-mid Oct, with outliers from late Jul and to late Nov/early Dec.

    : mid Dec-mid Jan usually at bird feeders. Most of these birds don't survive the extended cold spells that usually occur sometime during this period.

    Miscellany: During fall migration, Baltimore Orioles seem especially partial to rotting apples. In Bar Harbor one late Sep, 20+ were feeding in one small cluster of apple trees.
