Then I heard a few Rufous-winged Sparrows singing and spotted one low on a branch.
I later spotted one at the nest.
Then I spotted what I was looking for, a fledgling!

The squeak of a Ladder-backed Woodpecker got my attention. I followed it for a while. It obviously did not want a photograph. While chasing it, I was excited to get this photo of a Curve-billed Thrasher. The brown block wall made a good background.
I finally caught up with the woodpecker and got this shot.
Although I would have liked to have gone searching for migrating shorebirds and warblers this morning, it was nice to enjoy the desert birds in the neighborhood.
