Is that the Scott's boy?

My first thought was, "Now, who the heck is THAT?

Of the 5 kinds of Orioles that could conceivably show up in my yard, 4 of them have! Some of the ladies are very similar to the ladies of other tribes, and all of the women and children look entirely different from from their menfolk, so I have at least 16 different Oriole costumes to sort out. With the youngsters in varying stages of development, the bird books can't even keep track.

I think it's a juvenile male Scott's Oriole, and please correct me if I'm wrong! He's more orange-ish than the adult Scott's who accompanied him, and who was identical to the fellow pictured below.

Hey, thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a fantastic rest-of-week. I miss all of you! I'm excited to have my energy starting to return, and can't wait to visit your pages again!
