When we drove up to the house today, we noticed movement in the saguaro cactus at the end of the driveway. It's not unusual for birds to make their nests in the rotted out spots - woodpeckers actually carve out the cactus for this purpose - and we've seen birds in other cacti around town. But these two creatures belong to us.
Here's a closer look at their nest. Two fine feathered friends, cuddling up in their cactus home.
I tried to get a close-up picture from the truck but it was running and the vibration (and leaning out the window, over Ed) made it difficult to keep the camera steady. But here they are.
