Baltimore Oriole Icterus Galbula 5-23-2010

This bird was only here for 1 day.It appeared to be building a nest,but never saw it again.This was 5-23-10.I am not sure if I ID`d it correctly,so if I am wrong,please let me know.It was not as big as a robin.

Go to the springman`s blog to see photos of birds around the world & participate in his world bird Wed.the pine river review.blogspot.com/I missed it last week.

I'm no help on ID'ing this one since the only Baltimore Orioles I've ever seen have been on the baseball diamond. Great pics of this one, though.

Great images of a beautiful looking little bird. Post an image on Birdforum they have an ID page and the members will answer this in no time. Free to join just google Birdforum.
A wealth of knowledge on there.

One vote for a lady Baltimore Oriole here. When you see the male you'll know for sure. We get them in the spring in Michigan. They like to hang in pairs. A half an orange and some grape jelly will have them standing in line. Seeing your beautiful set really makes me crazy for Spring.
