Hooded Arizona Oriole
Later, on Monday night as I was catching up on Game of Thrones on our DVR near sunset, with a bottle of Monte Ducay, I saw the same Oriole drinking from the flowers atop the sculpted ocotillo just outside the living room window (and about 4 feet from the edge of the LCD Sharpe Aquos). Visually, the Oriole slightly resembles a mocking bird in size, shape, and coloring somewhat, but is not as vociferous as a mocking bird.
It's nice to be able to see a wide variety of species in my own back yard.
