Spring Bird Song Crash Course Day nine – Baltimore Oriole

Listen for the paired notes and rich, wet sound of the Baltimore oriole’s song. After the initially paired sounds the oriole will alternate with up-slurred phrases reminiscent of a 1950’s cat call to Marilyn Monroe. As a relative of the blackbird, oriole’s like to chatter and scold between songs.
