Hoping to confirm Female/immature male Bullock's Oriole from a HORRIBLE photo.


Recommended Posts

why do these female/immature orioles always have to be either really far away, uncooperative, or deep in the leaves of a shrub?

I think I can see a gray stomach, but it might be the lighting. 

Seen today, orange county, ca

thanks!

Learning bird vocalizations and sounds helps IMMENSELY when one cannot visually ID a bird…which is surprisingly often given that birds tend to be obscured, high up, distant, skulky, far, uncooperative, brief, etc. You get the point.

Okay, now would some one tell me were the bird is?

That's a good question, I don't see a bird in the picture myself. If someone does see a bird, could they orient it for the rest of us so we know where the head and tail is in the image.

Here:

Circled in black is the head and circled in yellow is the body.

(I think so…)

That bird looks an awful lot like cut pieces of wood to me. The strips are too long for any feathers, aren't they?

Never mind, what I thought was cuts in a piece of wood are actually branches in front of the bird? Pay no attention to me.

Yes. But, this one made a call that I hear both bullocks and hooded make. It’s that rattling noise.
