This oriole showed up just south of Waco, TX the other day. I think it may be a Bullock's Oriole. What do you think?

Here is a different Oriole in the same location and close the same time. Is this one a Baltimore?

Yep, first likely is Bullock's.

Second is a female, and they're close to unidentifiable between Baltimore and Bullock's (and there's always the option of hybrids between them; you're in the zone where both meet and often hybridise).
