As I said in yesterday’s post, this seems to be the time for changes in the bird population. We spotted an unusual visitor to the suet feeders and couldn’t tell what it was. A yellowish bird but larger than any of the ones we normally see. This was a particular challenge to try to identify for a couple of reasons. First, we don’t normally see this bird around here. Second, the coloring is not what you typically think of for this bird.
Unless, I’m totally mistaken (which is a distinct possibility) this is a Baltimore Oriole. I’m not sure if it is a female or if this is a male in winter color. Normally, you would expect the bright black and orange colors but in the winter, they are more muted.
If anyone can confirm or correct my identification, I would appreciate the help.
