Oriole, name of several members of the blackbird family. Most species live in tropical America, where both sexes are brightly colored; in temperate regions the females are olive drab or brown. The Baltimore oriole, now called the Northern Oriole, is black and brilliant orange. Orioles build their nests of woven grass, and some build hanging nests or large communal nests occupied by several families.
