More pictures from the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix.  It was lovely there.  If you're ever in the area, I'd recommend a visit.  It's a little pricey ($25 admission), but there are all sorts of neat cacti and other desert plants.

Here's a female Gambel's Quail.  I love those goofy feathers on their heads.

 

A hummingbird of some sort.  (How do I tell hummingbirds apart?  I'm a little colorblind, so sometimes color isn't the best indicator for me.)

 

A Gila Woodpecker in the evening light.

 

A European Starling (?).

 

Amazing photos! I went there and noticed the admission and decided it wasn't worth it (I should've done it :P ). In the parking lot I saw a Cactus Wren though! (You're correct on the Starling ;) )

Yeah, the admission surprised me too, but if you like desert plants, I'd recommend it.  Make sure you have a couple of hours to get your money's worth, and possibly wait until the plants start blooming to go.

One of the odder twitches I have done, feeding under Yews just outside the door of a police station in the parking lot of Canada's 2nd largest mall. Amazingly 2 present, likely wishing they had migrated given minus 12 temperatures.

Lincoln's Sparrow:
