Verdin! in Flight in Desert Canyon

Back from LaQuinta..got only a few nice bird pics, as was again, mostly busy with family for the weekend. I was taking this bird's pic, when he flew off..I assumed he was a Bush Tit...but now I am not so sure..since he has a yellow beak and the pics of ones in my bird books .. the Bush Tit has a black beak...so if anyone knows what this little cutie is..please let me know...Hope all my friends in the USA had a good Memorial Day Weekend...

 

OH thank you Maureen Sullivan for i.d.ing this bird as a Juvenile Verdin...I am excited now because as far as I know I've never seen much less photographed a Verdin..new one for the Life List!

 

OH...and I was disappointed as we did not see one single Road Runner this trip..took two trips last year and saw many...not sure why we didn't get to see any this time out...phooey!
