Looks like you have an Oriole in your yard! Put out some oranges to really get them to stick around!

Not so fast. The only oriole species with a totally black head is the Baltimore. It looks like Baltimore Orioles go through parts of eastern Colorado during migration, but July is in between spring and fall migrations. It’s more likely a Black-headed Grosbeak.This post has received 1 vote up.

I would identify the bird as either a Scott’s Oriole: http://www.pbase.com/missed_opportunities/image/165619226
or a Black-headed Grosbeak:
having photographed both species in the high elevations of Arizona in the month of May. The problem is with the photo not being detailed enough to show the songbirds full markings.This post has received 2 votes up.

I’d love to see more of your pictures of the Scott’s Orioles—they’re one of my favorites!

Hi Adam – – Looked back at the photos I took while in the high elevations of Arizona; found that I have 8 additional images. I’ll pull them in from my archive drive, edit the raw files to .jpg files and put them out on my website. Stay tuned.This post has received 1 vote up.

Hi Adam – – If you go to my website gallery:
http://www.pbase.com/missed_opportunities/arizona_rt and view the last two images in row 8; then all of row 9, you can see what I photographed for Scott’s Orioles.
