Yet Another Backyard First!

The parade of spring migrants passing through my backyard continues as this young female Bullock's Oriole graced my mesquite tree on Saturday, May 17th, 2014.

At first glance I thought I had another Vireo or a Kingbird,
but the yellow tail threw me off.

The mesquite tree has been the favorite of all the new yard-birds this spring, with the palo verde tree coming in a close second.  I'm convinced, NATIVE TREES are the way to go!
Did you know that you can get 2 free native trees from Salt River Project if you are a customer and attend one of their workshops?!  Check it out HERE. :-)
