Haven't seen any Orioles for a few days, but this Flicker seems to like the oranges

Nice image - sharp, and the subject is well isolated from the background by shallow depth of field. However, the species is Red-bellied Woodpecker (Melanerpes carolinus) (male).

Thanks for the correction on the bird - I like to take bird photos even when I'm not sure what they are.

Interesting, I will have to keep an eye open. We have plenty of both orioles (lots this spring) and a healthy population of Red-bellies. Flickers are a bit less common, but stable here. I try to get people not to treat for grubs, to help the flickers and other critters who eat grubs and ants.
