Recommended Posts

Photo taken today, Sept. 17, 2019,  Skidaway Island, Chatham County, Georgia......coastal Georgia.

Would like confirmation that this is a Baltimore oriole.  Thanks in advance.

Yes, this is an adult female/immature Baltimore Oriole. Note the medium size, thick neck, sturdy overall, and long, pointy bill. While adult males have a fully black head, white-edged black back, black tail, and orange rump, outer tail feathers, and belly, adult females/immatures plumage is highly variable but note the brown to yellow head and back, orange breast, and yellow tail/undertail coverts.

The only similar female oriole in the range is the Orchard, but note the more greenish-yellow overall and lack of orange breast.
