Sanoran Desert (2297)

Saguaro cactus is the life-giving tree of the Sonoran desert, and is systematically excavated by Gila Woodpeckers and Gilded Flickers, who might later leave these cavities to Ferruginous Pygmy Owls, Elf Owls, and Western Screech Owls. Ladder-backed Woodpeckers excavate cavities in smaller, woodier plants, such as agave, and in riparian shrubs.
