The Oriole is a passerine Icteridae family. Also known as concriz, john-dick and suffer.

It is approximately 23 cm long. Do not show sexual dimorphism.
This is one of the most beautiful birds and more melodious voice of this continent.

Omnivore. The Oriole feeds on fruits, seeds, insects, spiders and other small invertebrates. Enjoying the sap of flowers and fruits of the cactus. She also eats the flowers of yellow-ipe and Mulungu, the latter makes its plumage stay with a tone laranjabem strong. Feeds at various heights, with a preference for the lower vegetation. Like other members of his family, uses an interesting technique to get food, known as "spacing", "gape" in English, as the introduction of its pointed a fruit, curled leaves or rotten wood, for example, opening the jaws , thus making a cavity to spy and catch the hidden food
In many places the Oriole has become a major problem in Linhares for example, this bird did not exist before this site (appeared very recent). As it feeds on eggs of other birds, many birds breed and he goes there and eat the eggs. I have witnessed cases of Corrupiões entering nests of other birds and eggs for food.

Reaches sexual maturity 18-24 months. Sometimes build its own nest, but usually occupy alien nest to breed (ex .: bem-te-vi, coat-of-leather, Rufous-clay, Rufous-stick and Xexéu), shooing the owners and playing their young to the ground, but is not fully parasite, as shocks and creates her own offspring. Each litter is generally between 2 and 3 eggs having 2 to 3 offspring per station. The young are born after 14 days.
