The Streak-backed Oriole, Icterus pustulatus, is a medium-sized icterid (the same family as many blackbirds, meadowlarks, cowbirds, grackles, and others, including the New World orioles). It is primarily found in the west coast of Mexico, but is a very, very rare visitor in the Southwestern United States. It is also found in Costa Rica. References - * BirdLife International (2004).

Streak-backed Oriole is one of the scarcest. It has not established a permanent foothold as have the Hooded, Altamira, Scott's and Audubon's Orioles. The Streak-backed Oriole is similar to Hooded Oriole, in whose range it may occur. It's upper back is streaked lengthwise in all plumages (not barred side-to-side, as in the winter male Hooded Oriole). The bill is also thicker and straighter. The head of the male Streak-backed Oriole is deeper red-orange than the male Hooded Oriole. More

The Streak-backed Oriole is a medium-sized member of the icterid family, grouped together with blackbirds, meadowlarks, cowbirds, grackles and New World orioles. The preferred range for this species includes the west coast of Mexico, but is occasionally found in the southwestern United States. These birds may rarely be seen in Costa Rica as well. Members of this species are typically year-round residents. Nests are built on the ground or low in vegetation, and food is foraged and gleaned. More

I was surprised to find my Lifer Streak-backed Oriole foraging on the ground in a very Towhee-like fashion. Oh well, better to see the back pattern! Gilbert Water Ranch. Gilbert, AZ. USA. February-2006. Canon EOS-10D, EF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens. ISO 400, Evaluative metering. I knelt, and eventually sat cross-legged on the ground in the middle of the trail. More

Ancestral state reconstruction of female coloration and sexual dichromatism across all orioles. * denotes each migratory species. Note the repeated independent losses of elaborate female coloration: seven of the eight dichromatic orioles are migratory, and none of the migratory orioles are monochromatic (concentrated changes test, p < 0.01; K.

All is pointing towards Streak-backed Oriole, an identification confirmed by the bill shape and precise face pattern shown by this bird. The bill is huge at the base, thick throughout with a mean-looking point at the tip; Hooded Oriole's bill is slender and elegantly decurved, more like a shoemaker's needle than a claw hammer. And note the way that the black on this Streak-backed Oriole's face narrows at the base of the bill, the orange of the malar almost reaching the lower mandible. More
