Nesting Cactus Wren

A desert sunrise
shining on a Saguaro
where cactus wrens nest

      I'm not sure if you can see the wren in this picture.  She is peeking out of her nesting hole on the right side of the cactus.  She has a nest in this Giant Saguaro.  It is spring time and plants and creatures are birthing.  There are lots of golf ball sized quail scurrying over the road and new little western cottontails are the size of a softball.  I counted six on my walk one morning this week.  
    What new is happening in your part of the world?  Can you write a poem about it?
