Now I Understand


As I mentioned in the previous post, I couldn't understand why a certain Cactus Wren had taken to perching close by when I was in my usual sundown spot. I decided to investigate and after a while I spotted what I suspected to be the reason, tucked away amongst the spines of a cholla. I moved away but stopped to watch and sure enough, as soon as she felt I was a safe distance away the Cactus Wren slipped quietly into her nest, mystery solved.

Thanks Eileen, I was delighted.

Absolutely Roberta. No one is getting in there without ending up like a porcupine!
