Please read below as I have made some changes to the upcoming weeks or visit my page.
Week #16 challenge was Short legged birds. Having short legs myself, I can appreciate these birds who have to take short quick steps to get where they need to go on the ground. Unfortunately, I don’t have the ability to fly so my short little legs is all I got! We enjoyed a lot of song birds and some fine exotic birds (okay, maybe exotic to me). It’s funny how those in other countries find the birds in North America to be exotic when we think the same of their birds.
There were so many awesome birds this week from Wooly Muses Red rumped Parrot, which I have commented on his red rump a couple of times now, to a Eurasian eagle-owl & Cape Eagle Owl, House Sparrows getting hand fed, Shrikes & Sunbirds & Weaver on the other side of the world! Puffins made another appearance with Wigeon and Ducks and Teal…oh my! Lots of songbirds too!
The bird of the week goes to the Northern Cardinal! There were several great shots of this species and I personally got quite a few comments on my cardinal pic. Check out an old post about Northern Cardinals from over a year ago. I was cutting my teeth on the blogging thing, barely a month into the blogging world. Had no idea what I was doing!
I want to welcome the newcomers this week & last week! Hope to see you often, however this is a place you can participate whenever it suits you! We will be here, but will miss your post when we don’t see you.
I encourage you to visit their blogs and see what amazing things they have going on. If I missed your post or there was a problem with a pingback, please let me know and I will be glad to add you to the list. Remember to pingback from my post of that week and not my page. Liking my page is encouraged!
Next up: Week #17: Macro/Close Ups.
NOTE: I made some changes this week to upcoming weeks, so please take note! This week, I’ve added Close ups to the Macro theme. I understand that not everyone has a lens that will take a true macro. Others may be able to crop some of their photos to get a good closeup. We want to practice social distancing with birds, not because of COVID, but to give them space to do their thing in nature. I have a 200mm lens so often my shots are farther than they appear. Plus, as a graphic designer, I’m proficient in Photoshop and I have that program to give me more range to zoom in and crop.
I look forward to seeing your creations this week!
