~Cactus Wren, Cave Creek Regional Park, November, 2017
A very curious wren and the largest. There were several that would visit us in our “yard” at Cave Creek, always coming close to the coach and inspecting everything. I just loved watching them.
At least two pair were busy collecting materials for nest building.
Here is a Web-site with some good information on the Cactus Wren: Wren

Love Cave Creek Regional Park. We have a res there for the first week in January. Can’t wait!
Ingrid, you will love Cave Creek Regional Park; I sure did. Lots of birds, sunrises, sunsets, hot-air balloons, with lovely landscapes. Howard and I just loved this area. If you haven’t been to McDowell Regional Park, take a ride out there. Carefree Hwy, to Scottsdale Road, to Dynamite (east) to McDowell Park Road. Beautiful!!!
Since our son moved from Boulder CO to Phoenix in ’09, we’ve spent a great deal of time in the valley of the sun. And although we haven’t seen it all, we have had the pleasure of exploring a great deal including a 5 week stay at Cave Creek Reg Park. Always a joy.
I just love this area. Have fun Ingrid!!
