|Cactus Wren, AZ State Bird|

Cactus wrens fly into the latter category.
You guessed it! Both sexes look the same in the verdin.
Pyrrhuloxias, on the other hand, are sexually dimorphic. (That's your word of the day.)
|Broad-billed hummingbird, male|
Broad-billed hummingbirds also exhibit sexual dimorphism. And, writing of hummingbirds, don't forget to come to a banding session. Next one is Saturday, 30 April, sunrise plus 5 hours. Lots of birds (including some rarely-seen-in-Sabino-Canyon Broad-tailed hummingbirds) and visitors today (April 16). All of these beautiful photos by Ned Harris.
