This is a "Icterus chrysater" Roger Peterson called the one he found in British Honduras the Mayan Oriole. all the modern bird books say its a Yellow-Backed Oriole. I say Yellow-Backed Mayan oriole to its friends! Everybody likes dog food.

We always call those banana birds. What IS a banana bird then? Do you have any pix Elbert?


ps. we also see a bird similar to this one but it is orange and black - guess they are related....

There is a little banana bird I haven't seen one in years. I'm going to consider that an assignment. Thanks I had totally forgotten the banana bird.
their smaller and faster so It might be a challenge.

Are you referring to the Bananaquit? During the last dry season I had some regular visitors to my little northern place.

Yes , There cute aren't they, and quick! I on a quest for a photo of one now. We have a slightly different one on Ambergris that doesn't look like the book its called the Cozumel Bananaquit.
