BirdNotes – 23 Oct 2018 – Photos at the bird feeders

 

This morning’s featured bird is the Cactus Wren. A common bird in our part of Baja. A handsome bird. Bold and fearless they often walk right into my house in search of insects.

 

This shot is a Cactus Wern sitting on a Cordon cactus. The CW is the largest of the wrens and is found much further south than other wrens.

Spotted breast, dark brown streaked back and a large decurved bill are good field marks. The white eye stripe is a ‘dead giveaway’.. Both sexes are alike. They build a nest deep in the chooya cactus.

A handsome, bold, insect eater. One of my personal favorite Baja birds.
