Oriole

Yes, you are right. I didn't pay attention to location, or the fact it was on a seed bell. It is a Black headed Grosbeak. It was driving me nuts, so I looked it up and was going to correct myself. :)

Black Headed Grosbeak

Brandy, we do not have Baltimore Orioles in our neck of the woods. The colors are very much alike though. Also the Oriole has a longer, more pointed beak.
Susan, the Evening Grosbeak has a distinct yellow 'eyebrow'.
The Snohomish visitor is a Black-headed Grosbeak. I live a bit south of Seattle and have seen them at our platform feeder.

The Evening Grosbeak is more yellow. Looks more like a Baltimore Oriole.
