Bird just flew low to the south so perhaps is still along the wildlife drive someplace. Good luck if chasing.

Subject: RE: [cayugabirds-l] oriole

Both male and female Baltimore Orioles can be pretty variable in coloration. I've watched many orioles, and I've seen yellow-looking males, and at the other extreme, I've seen quite male-like females. There is currently a pair nesting in the Newman Arboretum of which the female is very orange, dark-headed and confusingly male-like (yes, I've seen the male of the pair and he is even brighter!). In my experience the comparative blackness of the head (male) and presence of brownish coloration on the head and back (female) are good ways to tell them apart conclusively.

Enjoy these gorgeous birds!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] oriole

We have our first oriole, a very pale, almost yellow male - it has a black hood but otherwise looks more like a female. I haven't seen this pale color in an oriole before.
