On the occasional days of snow in central Arizona I am more than happy to stay inside bird watching. Yet I felt bad seeing them shiver in the cold.
Maybe I lied on a previous post about the territorial cardinals as now I’ve seen not just two males…
…but a third as well. Can you see it? They seem to barely tolerate each other.
Not that I have favorites but the brilliant red against the brush puts me in the Christmas spirit.
I agree with Chris about how difficult it can be to identify some of the sparrows, especially during a feeding frenzy. And who knows what sets them all off in a scurry to quickly return to the seed buffet. (Couldn’t get the video to load.) How many can you ID?
The towhees skittishly pop in and out of view making it very difficult to get a photo.
It pretty much snowed all day then slowly the clouds broke at sunset.
And Sunday lived up to its name sparkling on the Weaver Mountains.
