Baltimore Oriole
1
Bullock's/Baltimore Oriole

Dull yellow, with touch of orange about the head & neck. Belly & flanks off-white-strongly contrasting with head & yellow undertail coverts. back flat grey with scattered blackish streaks or flecks. wing bars white. At the time, I considered this individual to be a female Bullock's Oriole but it is probably better to view this observation as oriole spp. This bird was distinctly paler - or more colorless - with a yellowish-orange wash.
