I am not a "Birder" and I took this photo of a bird in my back yard only because it is so colorful. *I see a few every winter and just assumed that they are a common Baltimore Oriole. *I sent the pic to a friend of mine who is an avid bird watcher and he identified it as a Lichtenstien's Oriole which is very rare and is know to exist only around Brownsville, Texas. *He claims they have never been spotted outside their small home range and is all excited that they migrate to Fort Lauderdale every winter. * What can I say...we got great weather down here.*
Can anyone confirm that his identification is correct?
