Baltimore Oriole

Recommended Posts

I took this photo yesterday in Savannah, GA.  A friend of mine thinks it is an Orchard Oriole - female.  Now that I took a better look, I pretty much agree.  What do you think?

 

Thanks

Female Orchard Orioles should be much more lemony coloured, as well as having a light coloured wing, and young males will have a pretty distinct black throat and forehead patch. The orangey colour and dark wing make this a young male. Some females will show a high amount if black in the wing, but it shouldn't be as extensive as this.
