In my Abbotsford back yard this morning in the rain .....what I think is a Juvenile Male Bullock's Oriole but opinions are welcome

Nice spotting. Looks like a Bullock's Oriole to me. I'm not sure if this is a female or a first year male. The colouring seems to contain more orange as opposed to the female's overall yellow and there is a hint of the black beard and black crown. I am leaning towards 1st year male.

Here's some images from Google for comparison.

Good birding,
