A break from my series on Flora and Fauna of The Azure Gate to show some photos from a hike Christine (and our dear friend Pierr), and I took a couple of days ago at Saguaro National Park.

Flora and Fauna of The Azure Gate Bed and Breakfast: Cardinal I 16 Mar 2015, 3:50 pm

The (Northern) Cardinal is a frequent visitor here at The Azure Gate. For several years we had a pair who nested here in a very conspicuous place. It was fascinating to watch the mother taking seeds from one of our feeders and deliver it to its chick.

Here is the first of several nice photos taken over the years. This one in one of our Palo Verde Trees:
