Question Need Oriole I.D. please


I'm hoping that someone can help me solve this mystery. I don't know if these are Baltimore, Bullock's or Orchard Oriole's. The male is a juvie I'm pretty sure and I've heard that the orchard oriole male juvie's can look quite different than the chestnut coloring they get later. I'm in Texas and I noticed a new bird singing in my backyard for the past 3 days and finally got these pics today. The couple were dancing and the male kept bowing to her - it was fun to watch!

I've been told that they were Baltimore or Bullock's...even one person told me Orchard - so I'm quite confused. Hopefully tomorrow they'll be back (I put out some oranges and grape jelly..yummy!) so I can see them more closely and/or get more pics!

thanks in advance!!
