Yucatan Oriole, Orange Oriole, Icterus auratus; Orange Oriole is endemic to the Yucatán Peninsula, which is largely brilliant orange and black in males, whereas females are rather duller over the head and underparts, and have the mantle washed greenish. Males possess an obvious white patch on the shoulder (the 'epaulets'), and the primaries are also edged whitish. It is generally fairly common, inhabiting open woodland, second growth, and rather arid, open areas, and the species sometimes consorts with other Icterus species. Some authors have suggested that this species might be better named the Yucatan Oriole, given that it is no more 'orange' than several other oriole species. It is almost endemic to Mexico, although the species has been also recorded in northern Belize. Mexico, OrioleY9821c.TIF
