Hello all,

A Black-backed Oriole visited a private feeder in Sutton on 7-8 May 2017. The oriole was not identified until a week after it was last seen. This bird appears to be the same individual that visited a feeder in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania in January-April 2017. The Massachusetts Avian Records Committee recently voted to not accept this record due to an inability to rule out a captive origin. More details and photographs can be viewed here- http://maavianrecords.com/black-backed-oriole/<https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmaavianrecords.com%2Fblack-backed-oriole%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7C103eed5c919f4c84103408d53ffb51ae%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636485270994877614&sdata=IGj5VYah3l%2Br7jRuHpu47WBN0YgaNetgsuY6do7WUFk%3D&reserved=0>
