Female or Juvenile Oriole

Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone for all the help. I was hoping for Bullock's, but Baltimore Oriole seems right.

FYI I did a little extra googling and found this: http://eontbird.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Bullocks-vs-Baltimore.pdf which says: "The white median (upper) and greater (lower) coverts (wing bars) are of note. With Bullock’s the upper edge of the median wing bar is consistently serrated with black “teeth.” The median wing bar on Baltimore generally has a squared-off, not serrated, look lending to a straight-edged appearance."

Those teeth are pretty apparent in some female Bullock's pictures online, and my bird did not have the teeth.
