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 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.
This bird showed up at my feeding station 5 days ago, 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 The photos found on this posting were taken of the same bird over the course of a few days.
