Here is a female Hooded Oriole.  She was on the resort grounds (with her beau) cleaning up any abandoned tacos.

Same day in August.  They were too fast to pan so it was luck.  Don't think I posted this before.

Thanks Riley.  I've bolstered the dam to enlarge the pond.  I trenched an overflow to avoid flooding the lawn and used the excavated material.  So, here's hoping for more pond shots come spring.

You're resourceful.  Make it bigger and lots of avian friends will visit.  Just in time for spring.
We have about 60 degrees (17) here now.

+1  Lovely.  Is that a good birding area or more resort?

The best I could do today is a dab of color on a drab but cute and thoughtful bird.
