Orchard Oriole Maybe

Marge and Don Thornton

Trying to make some sense of some older photos. This is a photo taken at the car wash area in Ellwood. I had been convinced that we had not seen the orchard oriole, but this photo made me think twice.


When I compared it with Maggie Smith's picture it doesn't seem yellow enough, but the really dark wings and pronounced white wing bars seem to be more like an oriole.

If anyone could help, we would appreciate it,
