The Streak-backed Oriole is native to Central America and
Mexico. It is an occasional vagrant to southwest USA.
Despite the name Oriole, like all Western Hemisphere "orioles" it is an icterid not related to the Golden Oriole.
The male (top row) has a strong orange head, front and back, with black
and white wings; the female, above centre, is yellow with black
and white wings.
