Attractive orange-and-black oriole of the Pacific coastal lowlands; local in interior and Caribbean lowlands of northern Central America. Found in tropical woodlands, edges, and semiopen areas with hedges and scattered tall trees. Associates readily with other orioles, such as Streak-backed and Altamira. As with most tropical orioles, sexes look alike: note the rather heavy, slightly decurved bill, black spotting on sides of breast, and mostly black wings with a white wedge on the tertials. Immature has greenish back, little or no spotting on breast, and wing pattern like adult.
