The Arizona Lovebirds


You know how I love the "lovebirds" who visit my yard all the time.  Well this one was visiting the Desert Botanical Garden.  Actually, I think there is another flock of them living around the garden.  When I was there one of the mornings last weekend, I heard their distinctive  chirping and I started looking around.  That's when I spotted this beauty sitting on top of a saguaro cactus.  It's certainly not a classic desert scene but, it seems these wonderful birds have made the area their home and we need to get used to seeing them in the desert environment.

You did a great job with this photo shot against the sky. The facial features of the bird are sharp as a tack! Cute little bird. Reminds me of the thousands of little green parrots which have inundated south Florida. I think someone let a few loose and now they are everywhere. Noisy, too!

He blends right in with the colors of the cactus.

He/she looks mighty comfy atop that saguaro.
