[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I think this fellow might be classified as a Northern oriole due to orange markings. He has the loudest chirp as described in Audubon book Clear, Flute-like whistled single or double notes in short, distinct phrases with much individual variation..
In the central plains these birds did interbreed consequently most birds there are hybrids. Now it seems they are choosing mates of their own type; soon these birds may be considered separate species again..

I can tell where they are by their whistle and am thrilled to see them..

Hello Jane, a very good shot of the Oriole, it's sharp with a great exposure and a nice composition. Too bad about the missing tail but anyway it's very good picture. Thanks!
