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 #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.

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