AUDUBONS OKIOLE COPYRIGHT 1901, evA. W. HUMFORO. CHtCAGO. BLACKBIRDS, ORIOLES, ETC. 291 AUDUBONS ORIOLE* Audubons Oriole, the male of which we illustrate, hasa very limited range, including the valley of the LowerRio Grande in Texas and southward in Mexico to Oaxaca.Their usual song is a prolonged and repeated whistle ofextraordinary mellowness and sweetness. The nest of this oriole is usually placed in mesquitetrees, in thickets, and open woods, from six to fourteenfeet from the ground. It is a semipensile structure, wovenof fine, wire-like grass used while still green and resemblesthose of the hooded and orchard orioles, which are muchbetter known. The nest is firmly attached, both on thetop and sides, to small branches and growing twigs and,for the size of the bird, it appears rather small. One nowbefore me measures three inches in depth inside by aboutthe same in inner diameter. The rim of the nest is some-what contracted to prevent the eggs from being thrown outduring high winds.
