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.

that's a beautiful bird.

i was driving yesterday and saw a proper flock of birds doing their cloud formation-thing, and i realized how rarely i see that up here.

it would be a worth a trip all the way down there just to see the birds, let alone the rest of the gorgeous area.
