More on the SPI Oriole of 4/7/14
Well, not so fast kids. Sharp-eyed Mary Gustafson noted this oriole has some chesnut flecks on it. And the greated coverts are quite worn so there may have been pale feather edgings at one time. So why isn't it an Orchard Oriole? I mean the thing even has a chestnut-colored ....uhm......personal area.
