That's amazing! I had no clue pretty little birds had their abodes in cacti!

Oh what gorgeous photos! I love the one where the adult is feeding the baby! You must have a great telephoto lens!

oh, sooo cute, all of them, the picture where the bird was trying to get inside the hole of cactus brought laughter here, that is one funny picture.

I always wonder how the birds can get right against those prickers! Great photos, Diane!

Just when I think I've seen every possible bird in the desert, you always show another one I'm not expecting! :-D These are wonderful captures!

I am always so excited each year when they arrive back and my yard is filled with their noisy chatter - it makes summer complete :)

Ah the Cactus! Feels good to see the enterprising birds have won over the tough Cactus as well.
