Breeding of the Scott Oriole in Los Angeles County, California

During the few days spent at Palmdale in the Antelope Valley between April 27 and May 4, 1916, the Scott Oriole (Icterus parisorum) was found to be fairly common wherever tree yuccas grew abundantly. Possibly a few of the birds were late migrants, as many apparently unattached males were seen. Two nests were found, however, on one of which work had just started on April 30; the other contained four eggs in which incubation had just commenced on May 4.
