Hey, That's The Hummers Food
Lens: M 50mm/1.4 Camera: K5 Photo Location: SoCal ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F5.6

It had just stop raining. Shot through the kitchen window. If I even slightly moved she'd fly away. When I asked her to stop eating the Hummer's food, she gave me attitude (2nd shot)
I think it is a female Scott's Oriole.

Heck Den, if the hummers aren't going to use it, looks like a great place to sit and take a look. Pretty bird you got there.

She scared the hummer off of it. He's waiting in the tree for her to leave.

Orioles of some species do love nectar. I usually oblige them. This one looks more like a Hooded Oriole (Icterus cucullatus) female to me. Sibley's guide shows female Scott's with the head all grey (no yellow).

After reading the description of both, I think you are correct.
