Verdin In Mesquite Tree — Image by kenne

“In the heat of desert arroyos and scrublands, tiny grayish Verdins flash bright colors—
a yellow head and chestnut shoulder patch. More slender and small-headed than a chickadee,
these restless birds comb the foliage of trees for insects and spiders, sometimes hanging upside down
to investigate hard-to-reach places. They supplement their insect diet with fruits and even nectar,
which they may sip from hummingbird feeders.” — Source:
