Scott's Oriole (Icterus parisorum) (1)
- Reported Oct 13, 2020 15:27 by Noah Arthur
- Carpinteria Creek, Santa Barbara, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&<q...>,-119.5140259&<ll...>,-119.5140259 - Checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S74797501 - Media: 10 Photos
- Comments: "A very ratty tail-less oriole, in trees above the turk's-cap hibiscus just downstream from the footbridge. Likely hanging around the hibiscus patch for nectar. It was very elusive and difficult to view/photo. In the field I identified it as an Orchard Oriole, but was troubled by the long, hefty bill. Now I'm concluding that it's a Scott's, based on the cold yellow overall coloration, dusky face, black "beard" and large, long curved bill."
