The Montserrat Oriole, Icterus oberi, is a medium-sized black-and-yellow icterid (the same family as many blackbirds, meadowlarks, cowbirds, grackles, and others, including the New World orioles).
It inhabits a small area on the island of Montserrat in the Lesser Antilles. It has been classified by BirdLife International as critically endangered, with a current estimated population of between 200 and 800. Much of its habitat was destroyed by volcanic activity between 1995 and 1997.
