[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Saguaro cacti are the trees of the Sonoran desert and many are inhabited by birds. Several species nest in Saguaro, including the Gila Woodpecker, the gilded flicker, and the Harris hawk. The nests are typically gourd shaped and below the entrance. I was able to capture an apartment dweller on a different saguaro - see the workshop.

Hi Greg,
Great shot, with excellent clarity and superb details. Love the composition with the 'human of the desert' in the correct position to balance the photo. Great colors and excellent exposure.
