Juvenile Baltimore Oriole?

Recommended Posts

I saw this bird this morning in Lido Beach NY. Based on the orangish color and pinkish bill (seen in the third photo), I'm guessing this is a juvenile Baltimore Oriole.

Birds of the World, Cornell's comprehensive bird site, says (for BAOR),

     Juvenile (First Basic) Plumage, Sexes similar in appearance but separable by wing length. if fully grown.

and

     In Juvenile, bill pinkish buff to tannish, gradually becoming slate gray in first few months.

The bill definitely looked pinkish to me so that's why I assumed it is a juvenile.
