ok the pics are pretty much junk, to many branches in the way, bird was to far away

so I cropped the crap out of these :)

but I have no clue what it is, it looks like an oriole but the female does not have a yellow head, and those spots on the back I have not seen either

this bird is not in the birds of michigan book I have that I can tell

it almost looks like a cross between a oriole and a flickr

anyone know what it is?

Female Baltimore Oriole. I have several in my yard for the third year in a row. Beautiful singers to go with their looks. They eat lots of bugs and they love grape jelly if they are around your yard. Not sure why she is gathering nesting materials though, the male builds it. Maybe just for a liner.

I'd say it's a first spring Baltimore oriole. Nice catch.

That's the stuff. :)

Regarding the Orioles, I have been hosting them in my yard now for three summers. I have seen them in all stages of feather patterns and growth. From my observations, the males get the distinctive black head and collar early in the first year, but it does not fill in completely until the second year. Not like your bird here, the black is complete but for a few stray lighter feathers here and there. The female juvies are yellow all over, then they start to get more black on the head, neck and back, like yours here by the second year and they keep getting darker each year. Just a guess, but I'd say this one was just turning 3 years old. If you have them close around to observe all summer long, you can see the matriarchs. They are much darker, but speckled, and they just have this air about them, well experienced birds. :)
