Baltimore Oriole (Icterus galbula), Bill Williams River NWR, La Paz County

This Baltimore Oriole was found by Michael Lester and Theresa Hyde and photographed by Theresa Hyde on 13 July 2014

Rare migrant with around 20 accepted records and several pending. May be increasing in recent years.

Probably a first year male, with nearly solid black hood and black back. Although a little hard to judge at this stage of molt, the extensive black of the hood and fairly bright orange color suggest a pure Baltimore Oriole rather than a hybrid.
