Orioles breed in California during the spring and summer, then return to their winter grounds in Mexico, and Central and South America in the fall. Bullock's orioles start leaving in July, while the hooded species generally stay with us until early September.
You might see a few birds stopping by your feeders as they migrate, so don't be too quick to take your feeders down.
