Cactus Wrens

Cactus Wrens
Cactus wren
Micron pen drawing inspired by a recent visit to the Charco del Ingenio Natural Reserve in San Miguel de Allende where I spotted that beautiful cactus wren
& got savagely devoured by a hungry mob of mosquitoes.
*Note to self: remember to put on repellent the next time!

Those are both so gorgeous. I love their sweet simplicity. I never knew there was such a thing as a cactus wren. We put a wren house out every year in front of our house and I enjoy their song so much.

This drawing is amazing! I've seen House, Carolina and Canyon Wrens, but not a Cactus Wren. Is there song as pretty as a Canyon Wren's?

Love your new drawing - can't wait to see what you and Arounna are hatching. FYI, the cactus wren is the largest of the wren family and it is the state bird of Arizona.
