Verdins Gone Wild!

At first it looked like a quaint little spring scenario at Desert Botanical Garden's Monday morning bird walk - two cute little Verdin sharing space with an adorable Round-tailed Ground Squirrel...

But the Verdin weren't in any mood for sharing.

Our lovely little pair turned into kamikazes, repeatedly dive-bombing the squirrel.

Verdin coming in for a head-butt!

Our poor squirrel got biffed, ouch!

For the latest list of birds seen at DBG, go to DBG Birdwalks Website.

  1. Great shots of that wild Verdin-Squirrel fight! There is always something interesting to see on the birdwalks.
