The golden oriole (Oriolus oriolus) name "oriole" was first used in the 18th century and is an adaptation of the scientific Latin genus name, derived from the Classical Latin "aureolus" meaning golden. It is the only member of the oriole family of passerine birds breeding in Northern Hemisphere temperate regions. The male is striking in the typical oriole black and yellow plumage, but the female is a drabber green bird. It is a summer migrant in Europe and western Asia and spends the winter season in central and southern Africa.
