Wordless Wednesday: Small Bird Amidst the Cacti...

Edit: Martha Z and Larry have very kindly informed that this little bird may very likely be a Black Phoebe, thanks for the ID!

This week, because it's a bird ;), I also get to participate in World Bird Wednesday here.

Also, Saturday the 21st is the last day to enter my free worldwide art print giveaway! The details are here.

Little creature knows how to avoid the thorns! Lovely!

Martha Z said...

I think you got a black phoebe, I enjoy watching them hawk insects out of the air.

NicoleB said...

What a pretty little fellow!

Lisa Isabella Russo said...

Thanks Arija, I love watercolors!

Thank you Tatyana@MySecretGarden, he definitely didn't seem to have a problem with that :).

Thanks for the possible ID Martha Z! It would completely explain what he (or she) was doing, he'd swoop and zoom from spot to spot. I took a number of pictures of him, but this was the only one that came out in focus.

Thanks so much NicoleB!

Larry said...

Nice shot of the Black Phoebe on the cactus Lisa! They are so much fun to watch as they fly up from their perch to grab an insect out of the air and back to the perch. Very acrobatic!

Lisa Isabella Russo said...

Thank you Larry, it really was an unexpected treat, I was going downstairs to photograph some art, so I had my camera with me when I saw the bird. Very energetic little bird indeed!
