This week’s Click of the Week is of an adult male Verdin. I photographed this gorgeous little fella on a recent trip to Arizona. Slightly larger than a Bushtit, these tiny birds live in the low desert, from California, Utah, and south-central Texas southward to northern Mexico. Behaving very much like a Bushtit, they tend to be very quick little fliers and can prove to be quite difficult to photograph as they do not stay in one spot for more that a second or two.
These images were photographed with a Canon 1D Mk IV and Canon 500mm f/4 lens.
