Oranges are one of the favorite foods of the Baltimore Oriole. I find the bird and orange visually appealing because they are the same color! (The orange and black contrast of this oriole is striking, even without the fruit.)
The base is constructed of found wood — from an old painted sign that I dragged from the wreckage of a burned-out Victorian grocery — and a croquet ball sporting its original orange paint.
