For today's bird I decided to go with a bird from the area where I spent 7 and a half years of my life. I figured I can work on the local wren some other day, as they are also very cute.
This one was difficult! It took me more than an hour an a half... But I guess I did have to do the cactus, as well. All those speckles are hard, though, and all those different colors together - black, brown, white. Okay, enough complaining.
Fun fact: The Cactus Wren is the largest wren in North America!
