Caption: This is a new one for me. Peterson's shows a very similar bird. If it is a Yellow Warbler, this is the female. The male has rusty stripes on the underside.

I would guess that it is a female Orchard Oriole. The Bullock's does not have yellow all the way down (there is a white/cream area around the legs).

Look at Orchard Oriole photo #4 under "Similar Species": http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Baltimore_Oriol e/id#similar

Compare with Bullock's: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Bullocks_Oriole /id

Yellow Warbler would have yellow tinted wings.

Identifying can be as fun as snapping the photo. :)

After looking through my books and the Internet, I have to agree. This is the first one I've ever seen, and I've lived here for nearly 20 years. Thanks ladies. I'll mark as "seen" in my bird log as Bullock's Oriole.

Quoting YouKnowWho:
This is not a Yellow Warbler. They are much smaller and have a dainty black beak.
I believe you've captured an oriole, most likely a female Bullock's Oriole.
Neat catch!


I agree... female Bullock's Oriole. It's a very nice shot!

About backwardguy

backwardguy

My wife of 41 years and I live in Hermiston OR. on a 5 acre "farmette". I have been an elementary school teacher for the last 29years. I enjoy the outdoors and animals and I'm an avid (not a good) golfer. My wife and I take our motorcycles on long trips and our destinations are almost always the beautiful National parks in Oregon, California, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Washington, Utah, and last summer we added Arizona to the list. Photography has long been an interest of mine and many of my photos are taken on our little farmette, and on our motorcycle trips.
