Little Girls have Pretty Curls, but . . .

. . . I like Orioles.  That charming little advertising jingle, usually seen as part of the Nabisco Oreo cookie advertisements on Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color when I was a small child, usually surfaces in my consciousness whenever my wife calls out “Oriole!” to announce a visitor to the back yard.  In this case a nice, male Bullock’s Oriole.

First sighting . . .

Getting down to the business of eating . . .

Pretty boy . . .

The Desert Museum Palo Verde trees in our yard attract admiring glances from most observers.  In spring, their abundance of blossoms also attracts flying visitors, much to our delight.
