Bird Habitats - Deserts

Recommended Posts

Thanks Melierax! I was hoping to see this thread! I couldn`t start it though, because (unfortunately) I do not live in or near a desert. ☹️

Green-tailed Towhee (the photo was taken in a mountainous area which I guess could be considered a high altitude desert, but they're normally lower in the sagebrush)

Same quail, two pictures.  There are a pair of quail that come to our feeder several times a day.  They live in the back of our property and are use to us being around.  This in in Bishop, CA.

I think this is a Says's Phoebe.  They have a nest on our side door roof header with 4 babies.  Phoebe's  have been nesting there for over fifteen years.

Of course, there’s many kinds of deserts...

Such as the sandy kind (Le Conte’s)

Or the thorny kind (Crissal)
