bird ID please

Stafford County, VA

This is a new one, at least in my yard. This pair showed up at the bird bath this morning, stayed for a few minutes, then flew off together.

Well, since nobody else tried, I will give it a shot-
How about Orioles, I think female and juveniles of the Baltimore Oriole or Orchard Oriole could look like this?
Dave have you figured it out?
p.s. That is a REALLY nice photo.

Thanks. I had not seen a juvenile oriole before and the lack of black around the head area had thrown me off. Also, from the angle I saw them, they seemed a bit small to me. But several of my friends agree with you and I am satisfied you are correct.

I'd agree with Orchard Oriole

Wow I figured one out!
The Orchard Oriole is quite small.

Actually having 2nd thoughts, may be Baltimore after all - a bit too much white fringing on the flight feathers for Orchard. The tail looks short, but in one, foreshortened, and in the other, part-hidden.
