The hooded oriole (Icterus cucullatus) measures between 7 and 8 inches in length and has a long neck and a long, curved bill. The Western population of the hooded oriole has a slightly longer bill than the Eastern birds and slightly longer wings and shorter tails. The hooded oriole is named for the orange-yellow hood on the male. The hoods on the Western birds are a paler yellow than those from the East, and there is a deeper yellow on the head.
The reference for the pattern and painting notes came from study skins provided by the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University in Tempe.
