Happy Cactus Monday / bird on cactus

I have no idea what kind of bird this is.....
The fakir bird ..................
Maybe Teri or Lisa knows?
Happy Cactus Monday!


  1. Wonderful sketch Marianne. Your bird looks like an Oriole. HCM.

  2. how lovely this is. hcm dear cactuteer.

  3. Oh SO pretty Marianne. Love your moon mandalas.

    It sure has the coloring of an oriole but not sure they are in Arizona so I am thinking Cactus Wren. Whatever he is, he is wonderful.


  4. Such a pretty atc!! he does have the same colors as an Oriole but I don't think there are any in the desert :)

    I'll look up this bird.


  5. Having a hard time here ,the falcon's are able to fly only 1 doesn't ((-; Ruud already put him back once.
    Keeping Beaudor at ease is difficult he is a hunter you know...
    Know it's nature but the parents won't feed her anymore i'm crying my eyes out...

  6. Hi Marianne! What a lovely painting! Maybe it is a woodpecker. I hear they like cactus. What ever it is I love it!

  7. I painted it after a picture from the internet so it really does exist......
    Thanks for all the ideas and comments!

  8. So pretty, wish i had my bird book with me so i could look it up too. all the other answers sound good though.
    Happy Cactus monday to you!

  9. Beeutiful painting!! The full moon gives a very soothing, calming feeling to it!!

  10. maybe it's a fagarwi bird, marianne. you know, the birds that get themselves lost and you can here them in the distance announcing, we're the fagawi!

    forgive me. i couldn't resist. :)

    your watercolors always soothe me, marianne. and today i heard the best news--something about mid august and running toward someone with open arms.


  11. I don't know what it is, but I think it's very pretty. I love the cactus and bird silouetted against the moon.

  12. Marianne this is so lovely. I also like the one at the bottom entitled Soul Portraits. Your work is amazing.

  13. Hi Marianne, he is handsome whoever he is!

  14. Liebe Marianne.... I was going to guess a Woodpecker....I think I have seen them in New Mexico....

    No matter...he is is the cactus and our beloved Moon.

    Speaking of GORGEOUS things.....I just received a LOVELY packet full of all sorts of magical treasures... I'm posting about it later today....but first, I had to say Du bist eine kleine Teufelin!
    Etwas kommt Deine Weg bald...

    Ich liebe alles was Du geschickt hattest!

    Liebe Grusse zu Du, Sjimmie und alle die schone Tiere!
