I have some more bird-spotting photos today starting with this rather shaggy looking cardinal. He must have been in the process of shedding some feathers. He is looking a bit tattered.
Here is one of those peach-faced lovebirds that have made the desert their home. You can tell I snapped this one in the spring because that saguaro cactus is full of fruit.
Here us a house finch perched on some cactus fruit. This one has a brilliant, blushing face and chest.
Here we have a group of starlings gathered high up on the branches of a century plant.
The world would be a bit duller without these feathered beauties to entertain us.
