Post from Ted Nichols II on ABA Rare Bird Alert Facebook page:

BLACK-BACKED ORIOLE - 20 and 21 Indiana Ave, Sinking Spring, Berks County,
Pa. If accepted, this would represent a first North American record! (A
previous California record was not accepted by their records committee.)
Park along the street and do not block and driveways or mailboxes. Bird can
easily be viewed from the street. The homeowners have also asked that
visits be restricted to 7:30am-4pm only. An eBird hotspot was just created
for this oriole. If eBirding this oriole, please use the hotspot.
