The orchard oriole (Icterus spurius) – the smallest of North America’s orioles – is predominately chestnut. Females and juveniles of both sexes look very different, with olive and yellow plumage. The subspecies of the Caribbean coast of Mexico, I. s. fuertesi, is sometimes considered a separate species, the ochre oriole or Fuertes's oriole. The orchard oriole often sings when flying, and produces a wide variety of vocalisations, including whistles and warbles. Its species name, spurious, means illegitimate in Latin, probably because of its resemblance to the Northern oriole in early descriptions.
