Monday Birds at Sabino

Well here we are again ready to start our morning walk at Sabino Canyon.
 
 

It didn't take long before we ran into this fellow, which after a long look in our bird book,  we decided was a juvenile Cactus Wren.
 

 

 
Not too much further along the trail we spied a very nice female Pheinopepla
 
 

The male is pretty much all black as the picture below illustrates.




Not too much later we were treated to a pair of House Finches.  Here's the female.


And here's the male.



We didn't see any entirely new flowers today, but I did like the light on this Brittlebush bloom.
 



Nature is full of variety and certainly not all Saguaros are perfect.  Anybody for the twist?
 
 



That's all for today's trail sightings.
