It’s a sight to behold: On migration, flocks of Western Tanagers pass through valleys, plains and foothills. They nest mostly in the mountains, in firs and pines, often at high elevations.

Bullocks Oriole

Bullock’s Oriole

In the West, sweet treats like oranges and sugar water will attract the Bullock’s Oriole to your yard. You may even see them on your hummingbird feeder!

Baltimore Oriole

Baltimore Oriole

This stunning bird is very similar in appearance to its western cousin, the Bullock’s Oriole. At one time, both species were considered one species, the northern oriole. Their ranges overlap in the middle of the country.
