Birds flying over water

After I chose a few images of birds in flight for Lisa’s Bird Weekly Challenge I realized they were all flying over water. Then I remembered that Terri’s Sunday Stills Challenge: Water in the Details. Thank you both for the inspiration for this post.

Bird Weekly Challenge – Birds That Eat Fish

There are many more birds that eat fish as their primary diet. I’ve chosen these images of birds with the freshly captured fish.

Bird Weekly Challenge #27: Birds with Long Wingspans

The wingspan of the American White Pelican can be as much as nine feet wide. A single pelican is shown in the image above and the next image is a trio flying over the water.

These are some more of of my favorite captures of birds with long wingspans.
