I was sitting on my couch in SE Michigan watching TV and I heard this beautiful bird chirping right outside the open window. Attached is the picture of it and youtube video of the bird's tune (starts at about the 4 sec mark). Anyone know what type of bird this is?

Looks like a Baltimore Oriole to me. Welcome to Whatbird!

Thank you and thank you! That's what I thought as well, just wasn't sure because of the tune he was singing. I assume it's a male?

They have "somewhat" of a variety of songs.... all very "rich".... Males and Females both sing..... yours is a male.... be on the lookout for "mama"! They have both arrived here in N. MI!
