Juvenile and adult Curve-billed thrashers. Caught them just before the sun peeked over the mountains yesterday morning.

I find that very appealing. Beautiful composition.
Very nice indeed

Gila Woodpecker...

Tom I'm with others re your posts and perches.
What immediately caught my eye was the stance, or the foot placement and how it had draped its foot around that little knob.

Always fascinated by the feet and the way they attach themselves to things, vertical, horizontal, upside down.
Birds are well adapted as shown many times here.

Marvelous shot, Robert. I like the turned head position.

Thank you, Mike! I think it was a birth defect. It should do OK, since it has survived that long, there is plenty of food source in the lake.

Excellent close-ups, Roy. The red eye and the blue around the eye, almost looks like it was painted on the dove.

He does look dwarfed beside the humongous cactus plant. Super nice shot, Mike.

This species has to be in the top 10 most beautiful in the world?
And of course no where near here!
Fantastic imagery Bill.

Thanks again, Mike. The Verdins almost never leave the cover of the low, leafy trees they prefer around here. I got lucky catching one in the open.

Thanks, Robert. Though they are close I still have to travel most of the time to see them. This bird was 3 hrs from me. I lived on 34 acres until a few years ago and had them come through on my place but I really wasn't into photographing birds at the time.
