The brilliant orange glow in the neighbor's tree was impossible to miss but too far off to see clearly. We all peered through the binoculars until finally I decided to risk spooking the bird by walking out the yard to snap his picture.
Here is the result. We believe it is a Baltimore Oriole, which is the first time I've ever sighted one in our neighborhood.
He did indeed get spooked by the sight of me in the yard, but not before I took a few shots of him.
