How big would you say he is? I have my bird book (Golden's Guide to Field Identification of Birds of North America) handy....
Hi Sunset, I'll take a stab at your window visitor: I'm thinking it's a male Bullock's Oriole according to my Peterson's guide. Note the black beard and eye stripe, but the bill looks a tad different.
KBB...5"-6" tall 6"-8" wingspan

Brian...I do believe we have a winner! Western North America:check(though I've never before seen one in these here parts)...Prefers riparian habitat:check...Likes willows:check. I'm not a gambling person(preferring to relinquish hard earned shekels on a juicy steak or somesuch), but if I were I'd bet the farm on Bollock's Oriole.


The mean intelligence quotient is pretty high on this board....
We have Bullock's Orioles here in NE AZ. They're beautiful! They are also one of the few large birds that will gobble up all the nectar we put out for the hummingbirds--if they have a branch to sit on!
Yup, sounds like we've got a winner!
What a gorgeous bird! I'm going to be seeing some interesting species in Hawai'i; I'll be sure to get some good pics for you guys.

Oh, GMTA = great minds think alike Wink
Lanix...are those Sandhill Cranes? That's what I'm thinking from the red masky thing (technical term). Smile
Lanix, I'm with CD on the Sandhill Crane id. I bow to her superior technical terminology!
