Crissal Thrasher At Joshua Tree Forest and More

Good morning to all you fine folks out there, in this land of wonder.
 DesertDale took these photos of the "Crissal Thrasher", not far from our site.
They live in desert washes and riparian thickets of the Southwest and central Mexico. 
They can be recognized by their long, down-curved bill.  Plus their long tail.
It's mellow song makes it one of the deserts finest tunes.
They are a grayish brown all over. 

Then there is the"ladder-back woodpecker".
It is a small black-and-white woodpecker of the southwest and Mexico that will nests and look for food in the cactus.

Will folks we see you in the next posting, as DesertDale has arrived, back from his ride all ready.  That was a short, sweet run.  Kitfoxgal
