My World Tuesday - Desert Birds

Greetings from the Sonoran Desert! These are some pictures from my walk in the desert yesterday morning.

Yes, we're having cloudy weather this week with the possibility of some much needed rain! This image of a saguaro cactus is naturally monochromatic. A couple of woodpeckers are perched near the top.

Zooming in on one of the Gila woodpeckers makes it easier to see.

Gambel's quail like mistletoe too. A female enjoys the berries

while a male is on the ground looking full.

Hiding behind the prickly pear cactus, this little rascal is not a bird, but fun to watch anyway.
