[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am not sure whether this Golden Oriole (Oriolus Oriolus) is a female or a young male. (will be happy to learn).

Cropped and a little sharpening.

Hello Shahar,
I can only confirm it is definitely a Golden oriole. Do not know whether this is female or male though...
I like the nicely done soft BG.

Hello Shahar,
As the female Golden Oriole varies with some looking exactly like the subadult male this picture could be of either.
It is an excellent capture taken from a fine POV with good sharpness, to show the features with good detail.
The composition might have been improved by cropping the bit to the right of the base of the branch as that part of the imgae has no interest and when the bird is facing one way a central composition is best avoided.
Even so this is a very nice image and thanks for sharing it.
Regards, Ivan

great capture, TFS Ori
