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. :-)
