What kind of Texas bird has a orange head and black body?

Your best bet is one of the orioles, a type of blackbird. Texas is home to the Baltimore and Bullock's Orioles. Altamira Orioles occur infrequently along the Mexican border. Bullock's are distinguished from Baltimores by their broad white wing patches and more extensive orange on the head, having only a black crown and eyeline. Altamiras have very limited black on the head, described best as a bib, so you're looking at a possible Altamira along the very southern border or more likely, a Bullock's. Depending on the time of year, I'd also check out the Blackburnian Warbler which migrates through Texas and can have a yellow to orange colored head and dark body. Exotics are also a possibility. Orange Bishops are sometimes kept in captivity and also fit your description, as well as some types of finches.

Why were the New York Giants baseball team's colors Orange and black?

Before managing the Giants, John McGraw managed a National League version of the Baltimore Orioles (not the AL Orioles of 1901, who would become the NY Yankees in 1903). When McGraw left Baltimore, along with some of his players, he also took the orange, black and white team colors to NY for the Giants.
