Yellow-Backed Oriole I thought the site could use a little yellow

Icterus mesomelas

A little birdie lesson

Why this bird is called a yellow backed.

It looks like it has black wings or black tail. Why is it said to have a yellow hood and not a black face?

The answer is Orioles are a black bird with yellow and not a yellow bird with black.
