Bird Weekly Challenge #35: Birds I love

I’m not a birder and don’t have a life list but I love all birds and I love to watch them doing what birds do. It’s always interesting to see a bird or a pair of birds on their nest or building their nest. It’s even more fun if there are chicks!

Bird Weekly Challenge #33: Birds on a wire or fence

This challenge reminded me of a Great Egret we saw perched on the end of a dock at an RV Park in Cedar Key, Florida more than a few years ago. It ignored me as it kept on preening and I kept snapping away.

After browsing through my archives I came up with few more birds that meet the challenge.

Great Blue Heron, Ft. Pickens National Seashore, Florida
Hawk on Fence in Coastal Georgia
Lark Sparrow – Montana
American White Pelicans and Cormorants – Texas Gulf Coast

Bird Weekly Challenge #32: Birds with Brown Feathers

I hope you enjoy these brown feathered birds from my archives. The Brown Pelicans pictured above were on the pier in Cedar Key, Florida.

I spotted the next four – a Hawk, Osprey, Juvenile Wood Stork, and House Sparrow – at different times near where I live in Coastal Georgia.

Hawk – Coastal Georgia
Osprey – Coastal Georgia
Juvenile Wood Stork – Coastal Georgia
House Sparrow

The birding was great as we traveled around the Texas Gulf coast a few years ago.
