Female, 17 April 2008
The adult male is chestnut overall, with a black hood.
During winter the female is olive above, yellowish below. The
immature male resembles the female while acquiring a black bib
and often has traces of chestnut by first spring. The smaller
size, lack of orange tones or whitish belly, and thinner, more
curved bill distinguishes females and immature males from Baltimore
and Bullock's Orioles. Its preferred habitat is suburban shade
trees and orchards.
