BIRDS IN GLOSSY BLACK AND VIVID COLOR V l4L1Uiimi JCUgidUp ll .uJLJVLy SOME BRIGHT AND BREEZY ORIOLE COUSINS FROM THE OPEN SPACES Bullock's oriole (upper trio) is a favorite with western bird lovers, as the Baltimore is in the East. His song may be a bit less musical, but his flashing colors are more conspicuous among the cottonwoods. Like the orchard oriole, the young male (upper right) masquerades in ladies' dress with black V-neck. Scott's oriole (lower left pair) haunts the misshapen Joshua trees of the arid Southwest and hangs its cup-shaped, fiber nest to the under sides of the yucca's stiff leaves. Perched in mesquite is a pair of hooded orioles (lower right).
