Here is a Baltimore Oriole photographied in the Carbonneau Marsh in Sherbrooke, Quebec...

This colorful bird bring joy and happiness to anyone observing it... Its song is also so remarkable!

Hope you'll enjoy :-)



With its brilliant orange and black plumage, the Baltimore Oriole's arrival is eagerly awaited by birders each spring migration. Its preference for open areas with tall trees has made it a common inhabitant of parks and suburban areas.

Cool Facts

The Baltimore Oriole hybridizes extensively with the Bullock's Oriole where their ranges overlap in the Great Plains. The two species were considered the same for a while and called the Northern Oriole, but recently, they were separated again. Molecular studies of the oriole genus indicate that the two species are not very closely related.

The "orioles" of the Americas were named after similarly-appearing birds in the Old World. The American orioles are not closely related to the true orioles in the family Oriolidae. They are more closely related to blackbirds and meadowlarks. Both New and Old world orioles are brightly colored with red, yellow, and black; have long tails and long pointed bills; build hanging, woven nests; and prefer tall trees around open areas.

Young male Baltimore Orioles do not achieve adult plumage until the fall of their second year. But some first-year males with female-like plumage succeed in attracting a mate and nest successfully.

Bonjour Michel,
Beautiful shot!
I like so much all the clear details got here, the lighting is so good and the focus on the bird also.
The DOF worked great to get depth on the picture, and the resulting composition is so well balanced.
Well done and thanks for share it.
Mes amities,

Salut Michel,
WOW quelle belle photo, des couleurs superbes, quel bel oiseau n'est-ce-pas?

Heureux mélange d'orange de vert et de bleu. Netteté irréprochable. Position de l'oiseau...


bonjour Michel

belle photo, excellent focus et nettetés de l'image
belles couleurs, j'aime l'attitude que prend cet oriole



Wow! Qu'elle belle capture de cet oiseau flamboyant que je ne vois vraiment pas suovent. J'ai eu cette chance pour la première fois cet été. J'ai même mis des oranges taillées dans le jardin dans l'espoir de les attirer mais il préféraient se nourir des fleurs et des insectes des pommiers.

C'est une très belle prise avec de bons détail, exposition, prise de vue et composition. C'est vraiment une excellente capture. Merci!

Hi Michel. Very nice photo of this Oriole We call them "Calandrias" and by the way have you ever ear them singing? They do so just beatiful. Luis52.

Hello Michel,
beautiful fresh looking colours - the fiery orange breasted oriole standing in perfect contrast to the cool and clear blue sky, and lovely imbedded in fresh green vegetation that is so well shown here with some parts of it very distant and soft, and other parts very clearly.
With thanks, and best regards,

Salut Michel

L`oiseau est bien capturé. Le bec ouvert chantant sa mélodie. Les détails sont si naturels, comme on y seraient.

Merci de partager
