Bird Week IV, Cactus Wren / by Dave Hileman

This was a new bird for me on our S/W trip but I did see several examples. This one was in the Saguaro National Park's eastern unit on a short hike. We were on the hike not the wren. He seemed to follow us for a while after we passed a picnic area. I think he knew what might happen if we stopped to eat. So he scurried along the ground and bounced from bush to cactus and back for a couple of hundred feet. 

The eyes of all look to you in hope;
you give them their food as they need it.
When you open your hand,
you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.
The Lord is righteous in everything he does;
he is filled with kindness. Psalm 146:15-17 NLT
