Verdins (yellow-headed one is an adult)
On another unseasonably cool day in Phoenix, we went back to the Desert Botanical Garden. Here are some of the sights.
Cholla with Fruit
Cardons (native to northwestern Mexico)
Gila Woodpecker, male
See the bee, above?
Cactus Wren (Arizona State Bird)
Prickly Pear blooms
Saguaro blooms (Arizona State Flower)
Mourning Dove juveniles
Look what we saw! If it hadn’t been cloudy, the photos would have been much better but it’s the first time I ever got one without branches in front of it. It was also very windy that day!
