First, I took the top photo. Then, I couldn’t believe it crawled out. I think he was playing with it before he ate it.
This bird has a striking orange eye, and a beautiful song. Sitting on the Saguaro cactus outback, it is trying to get at the flowers before they open.
One thing is for sure. Male Hummingbirds will not share a feeder. Right after this shot they soared off into the sky ‘sword’ fighting.
Two Cactus Wrens live in the holes of this Saguaro. They go in and out of both of them. I don’t think the holes are connected inside because they always come out of the one they go into.
Right before the rain started a couple of days ago, this Costa’s hummingbird was riding a Mesquite branch in the wind.
This is the first time we have ever seen a Night Hawk flying during the day. They usually come out at dusk. There had to be a nest nearby.
