I found an unusual looking baltimore oriole at brooksvale park today. It was a very pale orange (almost yellow) in coloration. While the breast was very pale orange the area on the wing (Covert?) that is usually orange was pale yellow without a hint of orange. The bird was very striking. It is likely at least a partially xanthochromic bird. If anyone is interested in seeing it it was singing in the area near the animal pens behind the large barn.
