Nesting Dove

I found this Mourning Dove nesting in a Saguaro Cactus in the Arroyo De Camino Cactus Garden this morning.  I also spotted a Verdin starting to build a nest in a Palo Verde Tree, and checked for the fifth day in a row on a nesting Anna’s Hummingbird.  Male Great-tailed Grackles were seen in higher areas in their odd breeding stance of sticking their nose in the air. Red-wing Blackbirds were making quite a racket in the cattail marsh. Any day I expect to find a pair of House Finches setting up house.  It’s all about nesting right now for the resident birds that stay here year around.
