The Cactus Wren (Campylorhynchus brunneicapillus), Arizona's state bird, is a remarkable avian resident of the arid southwestern United States and northern Mexico. This stout and lively bird is distinguished by its bold black-and-white stripes on the head and throat, complemented by intricate mottled brown and white patterns on its body and wings. True to its name, the Cactus Wren is well adapted to the desert landscape, often building its intricate nests in the protective spines of cactus plants. Known for its melodious and persistent song, the Cactus Wren adds a distinctive and harmonious element to Arizona's diverse desert ecosystem, symbolizing the resilient and enduring spirit of the region.
