A small perching bird native to the southwestern United States and parts of Mexico. Loud and extroverted. Eats insects like ants, beetles, grasshoppers, and then sometimes frogs. Forages in the morning. Nests in cactus plants.
From Your Daily Songbird, a little side project I'm working on, in which I post illustrations of birds daily, or almost daily. Mostly songbirds, but others too. It's all a little loosey-goosey.
