Oriole Tulum, Mexico

Dear all,
I met a small (family?) flock of Orioles in some woodland a couple of days ago. I believe they all had yellow mantle (not visible in this photo) so they should be Orange Oriole, I believe. However, that species should have dark tail feathers edged white, the text does not say anything about paler outer tail feathers?

Thanks
Niels

65 now. Took a look to see if I could help, but beyond "You could be right about Orange Oriole but I'm not sure" I'm afraid I can't.

Good luck with 66th.


Cheers

James

Orange Oriole would be my bet.

I may have found the clue on HBW:

Immature is like female, but more washed with olive, and with tail olive, not black
