Cactus Wren - State Bird of Arizona

Guest Author - Lisa Shea

The cactus wren was made the state bird of Arizona in 1973. It's known for building many decoy nests to help keep its primary nest safe.

Like other wrens, the cactus wren is relatively small and has a short, flat-ended tail that is occasionally pointing upwards. The cactus wren is the largest of the wrens at around 8" long. They live in saguro cactus plants, cholla cactus plants and other thorny plants. Cactus wrens eat insects, little lizards, and berries.
