That doesn't look like an Oriole to me. I believe it to be a Varied Thrush.

Thanks, that looks pretty close. Maybe he is just passing through, first time for me seeing one.

Male Varied Thrush for sure (black band around neck). We had one grace us with his presence yesterday. Had to shoo it away,though, when we noticed a cat trying to sneak up on it. But he perched contentedly on a tree limb right outside our dining room window for about an hour.

Thanks for the comments, I think this is the first Thrush I have seen here in Idaho, and he came to my back yard. I wish the tree was out of the way, but it was through my bedroom window and I wanted to document it, maybe he will come back.
