Most people are familiar with the glorious male Baltimore Oriole.
The city of Baltimore, Maryland has named their baseball team after this bird.
The immature, 1st year birds are not so obviously coloured.
I had this little beauty in the Spindle Tree in my yard in the second week of July.
It was likely born in May or early June.
At this stage, it impossible to say whether this individual is male or female.
The bird has drab brownish sides of head and neck.
The brightest colours are on the breast.
Baltimore Orioles are with us a very short time each year; from early May until about the end of August.
After they that, they head south where they winter in Central America and northern South America.
