Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #27

Week #27 challenge was Birds with Red Feathers.

Disclaimer: If anyone has an issue with me using their photos in the round ups, please kindly let me know. I haven’t had anyone say anything, but I don’t want you to think I’m using your photographs for personal gain. I’m here to show what great work you are doing with your photography by showing you off in these posts.

As we approach the holidays, red and green are prominent branding colors for Christmas. If you celebrate a different holiday, I will wish you a happy one here. We celebrate Christmas and both my trees are filled with birds. Not real birds, except one year a Carolina Wren was in a potted plant that we brought in from freezing temps and didn’t know it was in there. It flew through our house and landed at the top of the Christmas Tree. Did I think to grab my camera? NO! I was so freaked out that the bird would hurt itself. We finally got it to fly back through our kitchen and towards the back door. It was unharmed as it finally made its escape. That happened on my red tree which has cardinal ornaments and all the ornaments that my kids made when they were young. It is actually a green tree with red and gold decor that is 28 years old and still looks awesome! Obviously artificial. I have allergies so a real tree is not an option. My other tree is the blue tree. Again, it is green but with blue and silver decor. Has all kinds of birds perched on it, plus bird ornaments all over.

Welcome to the newcomers, Ark and Brian. We now have 3 Lisa’s, 2 Brian’s and Partridge in a Pear Tree. Okay, it would be cool to see a Partridge in a Pear Tree but that Carolina Wren was pretty awesome.

Aletta’s Southern Double Collared Sunbird
Ark’s Greater Double Collared Sunbird
Maria’s Bohemian Waxwing
Lisa’s Red-winged Blackbird

I encourage you to visit these blogs if you haven’t already 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 #28: Birds near or in the water or snow. This will be the last Bird Weekly Challenge of 2020. Next week, I’m off for the holidays, but will do a round-up. Week #29 will resume on January 1, 2021! Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa or whatever holiday you celebrate this holiday season. If you are Scrooge or the Grinch – Merry Christmas to you as well!


I look forward to seeing your creations this week!

    • I thought the red birds were awesome from everyone this week. I’ll be doing a post next week sharing our Christmas decor. 🙂 I’m still processing lots of orders. Thought it would slow down by now.

      • Thanks Deborah! I appreciate it! You helped me get started in the beginning. Are you still planning a trip to come in the spring even with the high number of covid cases?

      • We’ll have to see how my Mom is doing by then. She just got out of the hospital with another triple bypass, and new valve replacement in her heart. I’d be there now helping my Step-father with her care if I didn’t have to stay in quarantine for 10 days before being able to go to their house. With the holdiays upon us I don’t have much more than 10 days to stay. 😭

        It would be awful to go all the way to FL and not see her. I’ll keep you posted.

      • I think you need to take care of your mom and spend as much time with her as you have available! We can do birding in 2022. I’m flexible and with the covid numbers going up and up and up….it’s just scary. I’ll say some prayers for your mom! 🙂
