I believe this is a young bird. It could be a female, but I’m pretty sure it is young. A few of these birds come to my backyard to raid the bird feeders.

I’m pretty sure these birds have a nest in the Acacia tree behind my cottage – between my cottage and Corcoran Lagoon. I’ve occasionally seen Hooded Orioles in Santa Cruz during spring. I always seen them in Nov and Dec when I’m down in Cabo San Lucas.
