Immature orchare oriole

First orchard oriole of the year in our yard. He and a red headed woodpecker took turns eating the oranges.

Icterus spurius

The oldest Orchard Oriole on record was a male, and at least 11 years old when he was recaptured and released during banding operations in Maryland in 2012.
