Young male Oriole

The BirdCam shot some video of a young male Oriole that is beginning to get his adult plumage.  Look at this video and he is the second bird that flies onto the feeder.  It was towards the end of the 10 second clip and he was on the next video before flying away.  Notice that his "bib" has come in, yet he still has the overall color of a juvenile bird.

He was only in these two very short videos.  The BirdCam didn't get any still shots of him either.  I hope he sticks around so we can watch his bright yellow feathers come in.  Below is a screen capture that I got off of the video, sorry its not better quality.
