This is a young male Baltimore Oriole. This juvenile oriole has some of the markings of an adult male but lacks the dark head. It is VERY RARE to see one here this time of year! This Photo was taken on CHRISTMAS EVE DAY 2012
This young male should be wintering in Florida, Mexico or Central America. He should have migrated long ago to warmer climates yet he is living in an old growth forested area and comes to visit my feeding station daily now. Seen every day since 12-12-12
PHOTO TAKEN CHRISTMAS EVE DAY 12-24-12 Photo is as taken Ornament was not added after the fact. This bird showed up at my feeding station on 12-12-12, and has been coming back every day now. Please note that this bird is not typically found in this part of the world at this time of year. VERY RARE to see this bird in December in Wisconsin. I see no point to posting me seeing him daily here. I will be reporting this to Cornell Lab of Ornithology for their bird study. I have already and will post the last day I see him this year there . Should he spend the winter I will document that for them as well.
