Cyndi I took a quick look at the Oriole. I'd have to say that it appears to be just a Baltimore. There does seem to be some colors bleeding into one another in the image, but the facial pattern, wing pattern, and tail look pretty spot on for Baltimore. Thanks for sharing!

Over the weekend a couple of male RB Grosbeaks appeared. They both have interesting streaking. The red extends down the middle of the breast. Not sure if this is atypical or not as we are novices.  We've had RB Grosbeaks in our yard in previous years and don't recall seeing similar markings.

Also today a Baltimore Oriole showed up at our feeders. He appeared to have some extra bright orange on his scapular. Does this indicate possible hybrid with Bullocks?  

Hoping some experienced birders might look at the photos and email or comment to let us know.
