What beautiful patterns on that bird; like bark. What a great photo.

I'd like to see one of these, too. Was it after insects on the cactus?

chiefbiscuit - I love the coloration, too. They also have somewhat rosy rumps and beautiful speckled breasts.

jimmy - I hope one day you'll get to southern Arizona. It's one of the great birding areas of the U.S. - you'd find a lot of cool birds and flowers to photograph.

homebird - Thank you!

laurahinnj - Probably getting insects. There's one that comes on my studio windowsill every morning and keeps it free of crawling things.
