Cheerful Greeting


Just after Christmas last week, I went to the Desert Botanical Garden for a walk and when I stepped through the entrance I saw this cute little cactus wren near by greeting people as they came in.   These birds are so cute and industrious with their building and scavenging for building materials that I just had to stop and take his photo. These are the luxury builders of the avian world.  They spend their lives making the perfect nest.

They are industrious as well as protective of their nests. I had a cat and a dog who learned to steer clear of the Cactus Wrens nests.

What a wonderful shot of this lovely bird! I understand all about them 'cause I've spent my life ... well, finding rather than making - a perfect next. And I ain't done yet!
