Correct response: What is the Baltimore oriole?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
The name “oriole” derives from “aureolus”, the diminuitive for the Latin for “golden” (“aureus”). The Baltimore oriole, the state bird of Maryland, is a migratory bird that spends its winters in Florida, Cuba, Southern California, Central America, and northern Venezuela and Columbia, an its summers in the Eastern and Midwest United States, southern Ontario, parts of Atlantic Canada, and the Canadian Prairies.
For a time, it was thought to be the same species as the western Bullock’s oriole due to interbreeding, but further 1990s research concluded that the two birds were not the same species.
The bird also lends its name to the Baltimore Orioles baseball franchise.
