I saw this bird in a tree of my summer home in Brewster, MA, yesterday. Can anyone please tell me what kind of bird it is? Thanks.

What kind of bird

This appears to be a female oriole as it is lighter in orange color than the male which usually has a black head with black wing bars and bright orange body color.

The oriole is one of the most colorful of the wild birds and loves to feed on orange halves, nectar feeders and loves grape jelly put on a hanging feeder in a small dish.
