Creating Homes for Orioles

Coastal Orange County’s once-abundant California fan palm habitat has declined, and Hooded Oriole birds have nearly disappeared with it. Let’s bring them back.

Palm Grove Plans

The non-profit Huntington Beach Tree Society is hoping to raise funds to bring back habitat in spacious southwestern Huntington Central Park, CA, for Hooded Orioles to nest and thrive. We envision planting an 11-to-15-tree grove of Washingtonia filifera desert fan palms, also known as California Fan Palms.

Bright yellow Hooded Orioles are called “palm-leaf oriole” for building nests in palm trees. They favor the desert fan palm – the only native palm tree of Southern California. Once established, these drought-tolerant palms will grow fast – and tall.

Bringing Back Habitat

Kids and adults alike will be thrilled to see these and other fantastic birds return to a flourishing palm forest. 100% of your tax-deductible donations to this exciting project reclaims habitat for one of the Southwest’s most stunning birds, along with many other species of wildlife. Thank you for funding native palms to help bring Hooded Orioles back!
