Actually, I think it's a Baltimore. Most of Oklahoma is out of range for Bullock's, and there are dark centers on the scapulars.

Well I'm not an oriole expert, and I've never seen a Bullock's; but it looks like the female Baltimores I see here during the northern winter.

Latest lifers: 17 from the Christmas Bird Count in Petén, including Tody Motmot, White-Whiskered Puffbird, Ladderback Woodpecker, and Black and White Owl. From the Christmas Bird Count in Antigua Guatemala, three: Mexican Whippoorwill, Hermit Warbler, and Yellow-Bellied Flycatcher.

I wish you could see more of the front of the bird. Being from the west I've never seen a Baltimore Oriole. But the guide books are right it sure would have been a lot easier to identify. The way it was hunched over made it hard to tell how yellow it was below.
