This guy showed up a couple days ago and was eating on the feeder with the House Finch's. He is bigger than they are, and I think he was having a hard time at the feeder so he started eating what was dropped. I thought it might be some sort of Oriole? Maybe a Bullock's Oriole? But then his beak is not the right shape. I am at a loss, and need some help.

Thanks for looking and hopefully you can tell me what he/she is.

Sorry about the bad quality, I had to shoot through a window.

ALRIGHT! You are dead on, I didn't even see that one listed when I searched the bird site.

Thanks again, good to know what he/she is now.:D

I've found that the little things make the biggest difference. One look at the beak and I immediately thought "Grosbeak". After that it was a quick Google and there you go.

Glad to help.
