Hooded Oriole

    Related Articles


    Hooded Orioles (Icterus cucullatus) are migrants, here today, gone around September, in most areas. They can be found nesting anywhere in their range (mostly Southwest), north of Mexico. When they are not stopping to sing or work on their fantastic hanging nests, orioles are busy gleaning insects from the foliage.

    Unfortunately, the personality of these birds is not as pretty as their plumage. The male can be vicious, driving away others of its kind from its selected territory. These birds freely move between trees and shrubs, and they often fly across open spaces. But you will rarely see them on the ground unless they’re fetching pieces of string you’ve put out—or fighting ferociously with the trespassing male.

    It is believed that 99% of health problems in rabbits would not occur with proper management, which includes good sanitation, feeding high-quality feed, taking time daily to clean and fill water and feed bowls, providing adequate room, cleaning sitting boards, cleaning ears and checking teeth and continually providing protection from cold, heat, wind and rain. Sanitation plays a major role in the health of your rabbit and cannot be overemphasized. Failure to adhere to good sanitation practices will inevitably result in the development of bacterial and fungal diseases.
