Posted on March 26, 2012August 9, 2013 in Bird ID Quiz, Birds Bird Quiz #3 (Make sure you also see the previous months’ Bird Quizzes!) Can you identify this bird? The photo was taken Tucson, Arizona in March. And yes, this is exactly how I saw it! My answer will appear next Monday. Share this:TwitterFacebookMoreRedditTumblrLike this:Like Loading... Related

Is this one of those nifty woodpeckers that lives in the saguaro? Cornell gives me two options, the gila woodpecker and the gilded flicker. Unfortunately, they did not have a rump photo of either! So if I had to guess, I would go with the smaller gila.
Oh! Oh! I’m going to go back with my initial instinct when I first read the post – cactus wren? (But then I had to go and do research and got onto the woodpecker line of thought…)
