    Comments: First seen at 8:20am perched about 10 feet up in the top of dense shrubs about 3 feet from a Baltimore Oriole. Bird seemed to be just slightly larger than the Baltimore Oriole and significantly more yellow in coloration as opposed to orange of the Baltimore. Full black hood, black wings, and black tail were noted. Absolutely no white wing bars or other white present on wings which ruled out all other possibilities including Scott's and Audubon's. Unable to obtain photos as the bird took flight. Bird seen again in flight about 15 minutes later and solid black wings and tail were again noted. Seen by three observers, Sarah Roper, Claire Johnson, and Christina Parks.
    Sighting was immediately posted to Texbirds Facebook group and bird was later refound and photographed by a different observer.
