Yes, an adult female Baltimore Oriole.

Edit: On second thoughts, the mantle colour perhaps suggests a first summer bird.
Come doleful owl, the messenger of woe,
Melancholy's bird, companion of Despair,
Sorrow's best friend and Mirth's professed foe
The chief discourser that delights sad Care.
O come, poor owl, and tell thy woes to me.
Which having heard, I'll do the like for thee.

(Anon c.1607)
