Who is that peeking out from a hole in a saguaro cactus? I believe it's a Western Screech-owl. I have an early morning bird-watcher to thank for this photo. I never would have spotted him without her help.
This house finch was enjoying his reflection and an occasional drink of water.
This fellow appears to be feathering his nest.
And this Gila Woodpecker was on his morning rounds.
A 6:00 AM walk around the Desert Botanical Garden on Sunday morning was very productive for bird sightings. I must say that now that summer is approaching and the winter long exhibit has been dismantled, the garden is back to being a great place for a long walk. I know that the art exhibits the garden has during the fall, winter and spring months produces a huge amount of income for the garden but, it's always nice when the crowds are gone and the garden is once again peaceful and full of wildlife.
