Hi John,
Thanks for bringing that Oriole to our attention.  Looks like a 1st-winter male Baltimore.

This email came through the NHBC's website.  The observer said it was OK to
post to CTBIRDS.  In a separate email, she said the bird was seen y'day.

    During the last week in Dec and the first 2 wks in Jan we had an
orange bird visiting us. I sent pictures to whatbird.com and the opinions
were either a female Baltimore Oriole or a Bullocks Oriole. 
    I am wondering if you can give me any information on actually
identifying this bird. A few birders advised me that either bird would be a
rare sighting. 
    Thanks for any help,
