A splash of color in the mostly drab plumage of the spring avifaunae (particularly the icterids/ blackbirds), a male Bullock’s Oriole brightens up the season around Boulder. After spending its winter in the warmer climes of southern Mexico, the orioles return to the western U.S. to breed in the summer. They are one of only a few bird species in temperate North America that construct hanging nests from tree branches to discourage nest predators.
