Look at that color!! They're so long and lean looking, aren't they? I can't recall ever seeing one up close and personal.

MAGIC! I've never seen an Oriole. Oh dear. There's that tiny bit of the fourth deadly sin creeping in!

Hi! Thanks for visiting me today. High desert? Is that the Antelope Valley of Southern California? I used to work there.

I echo GB - definitely a bit of envy here (assumning that's the fourth one).
