Orchard Oriole's Friend

Marge and Don Thornton
 

Yesterday we spent a little while looking for the Orchard Oriole along Santa Monica Creek.  We enjoyed his company for for a bit, but among the pictures we took, we found some of an Oriole sized bird that we couldn't identify.  The biggest problem was that its beak was consistently hidden by the flowers.  Pictures are on Flickr.

If anyone recognizes this bird, we would love to know what it is.
