Hey friends,

I've got an unusual Oriole around my yard. It likes to sit on my
hummingbird feeders. It has a long, curved bill, black on its throat that
doesn't extend behind the eye, and a fairly deep yellow color that doesn't
really turn white in the belly like I would expect on a young Bullock's
Oriole.  I'm not positive on the ID though, so I'd love to hear your
thoughts.  Immature Hooded Oriole maybe?
