Bird Weekly Challenge #21: Birds with Black Feathers

I searched through my archives for birds with black feathers and came up with birds I saw in Alaska, Texas, Colorado, and close to home in Georgia. The photo above is a Hooded Merganser at Inks Lake in Texas.

  1. Beautiful pictures! I especially like the Puffins. My dad did some woodcarving as a hobby. I have a picture of a puffin he carved. I’ll have to track down where it ended up. I also like the red beak of the oystercatcher. That’s a new one for me! Enjoy your day!

  2. Wonderful array of photos from your travels, Beth! The Puffin is my #1 bucket list bird! The Black Billed Magpie & Black Oystercatcher would be lifers too! The Whooping Cranes would be as well even though I saw them as a kid…that doesn’t count. Thanks for sharing these awesome birds with us! πŸ™‚ BTW…That male merganser is quite beautiful!

  3. Your bird photos are always great. We always refer to seasonal residents in Florida as “snowbirds”. I guess you could call the hooded mergansers snow birds as well because they are winter residents in our part of Florida. I don’t see them often on our pond but they really are cute.
