The Orange Bird

Today I saw a new bird in the yard, mostly a peach-orange color.  After considerable poking around through bird ID sites, I think it's a female Baltimore oriole.  Only the last few years have orioles appeared in this area.  This is the first time I've seen one in the yard.  It and a male goldfinch were drinking from a bowl on the patio.  They never cared for the birdbaths I've put out.  Maybe I'll try just keeping that bowl full instead.
