The Baltimore Oriole, according to Wikipedia, gets its name from the fact that the color of the male resembles Lord Baltimore's coat-of-arms. They breed in the eastern half of North America and winter in Florida, and from Mexico south to northern South America. They mainly eat insects, berries and nectar.
