Birds with White Feathers

There are so many beautiful birds with white feathers I had a hard time choosing just a few. In recent bird challenges I have already featured White Pelicans (my favorite), Bald Eagles, and Whooping Cranes so I browsed through my archives to find a few images I haven’t yet used in the challenge. I captured this ring-billed gull on the beach this past weekend.

Ring Billed Gull, Georgia
NeNe, State Bird of Hawaii
White Ibis, Georgia
Loon, Jasper National Park, Allberta

I love it when two photo challenge have a similar theme. Lisa’s Bird Weekly Challenge this week is Birds with White Feathers and Terri’s Sunday Stills Challenge is A White-Washed World.

  1. Beautiful pictures! Love the beak on the ibis, and the loon looks very formal, almost like he is wearing a tuxedo. One of my favorite white birds would be the snowy owl. I’ve only seen one in our zoo, but still gorgeous. Nature is so interesting. Thanks for your post!

  2. Such gorgeous birds all dressed in white, Beth! Your lens captured them all so beautifully, too! I agree that the loon looks like he’s wearing a tux! Delightful to see. I’m glad you met the twin challenge and I might have cheated because I always check Lisa’s bird weekly page to see what each month brings!

  3. Awesome birds this week! I’m so happy you shared the NeNe. I remember seeing them when I went to Hawaii in 1984, but I wasn’t a birder back then and didn’t take any photos of them. I was 18 and in full party mode. LOL! πŸ™‚ Guess I need to go back to really enjoy the birds of Hawaii. The ring-bills are coming in large numbers right now. I saw 20 of them in the Publix parking lot last week. πŸ™‚

      1. Sounds like they are on the move. I haven’t been to the beach in a few months because of my foot. A lot to walk onto Little Talbot. Maybe we can take a drive up to Fernandina this weekend. That would be fun. πŸ™‚
