Other birds from Joshua Tree

On my way into Joshua Tree, I stopped by the Living Desert and spent the better part of the morning there.  I was impressed with the amount of wild animal life I found there.  This was mostly in the form of birds but I also saw plenty of lizards and even a jackrabbit.  There was quite an abundance of other birds at the southern end of Joshua Tree National Park.  The three most common were probably the White-crowned Sparrows, Phainopeplas, and the Black-throated Sparrows.  There was also a number of hummingbirds around.  I’m used to just seeing Anna’s up here, so it was nice to see some different species.  I even managed to find a hummingbird nest while out hiking!
