Saguaros must be a great host to all these birds.

And it is always busy to a host.

I am amazed by all the wonderful birds this year. I don't feed the birds, to many ground critters to attack my home but my fountain is always on for some water.
The last photo is quite spectacular. Looks like a the bird is trying to do a triple flip with 2 1/2 turns.

cheers, parsnip

You have so many beautiful birds in the desert. I just love how they just sat on top of the cactus tree like that.

Great photos. The saguaro fruit 'mouths' are a bit scary though! ;-)

The pyrrhuloxia: my favorite! I don't think I saw any...

Annie said...

So pretty. I'm amazed by the bird variety the desert is home to.

Love all your birds on Saguaros - you wonder how they can avoid the thorns!

Great job capturing all these saguaro visitors! Everybody loves the fruit, and who can blame them?!

The verdin is my favorite! I wish I could see one of the pyrrhuloxia...wish I could pronounce it too. :)

Hugs,
Betsy
