2017 Bird Count - Baltimore Orioles Wintering in S.C.

Baltimore orioles historically winter in South America and Central America, but with climate change they have begun using South Carolina as a wintering ground. The 2017 Bird Count data recorded the highest number of Baltimore orioles ever to winter in South Carolina, just over 300 birds! Baltimore orioles are neotropical migratory birds, and they have a proclivity to eat grape jelly from specialty feeders. For more detailed information click on Great Backyard Bird Count.
