Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #29

Week #29 challenge was Birds with a Long Wing Span.

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.


Hope everyone had a wonderful New Years! To say that I was ready for 2020 to be over and in the books is an understatement. We had a quiet day after staying up late babying Heaven because of the fireworks. For those who have just joined us and may not know me, Heaven is our 14 year old Bichon that just doesn’t do well with fireworks and thunderstorms. The fireworks finally stopped at about 1:30am. She stayed close to us under a blanket on the couch for safety. Now….back to the birds!

It is truly amazing to watch birds fly high or low in the sky. The aerial show they put on for us humans is an absolute necessity for their survival. This week we showcased birds with long wingspans. The bird with the largest wingspan living in the world is the Wandering Albatross found in the Southern Ocean with a wingspan of 12 feet (3.7 meters). In 2010, researchers found and gave a name to a bird much larger. It is named Pelagornis chilensis which lived 5 million to 10 million years ago and had a wingspan of at least 17 feet (5.1 meters). This new species that lived long ago was based on an intact skeleton. An article from the New York Times is here if you would like to read it.

Really a wonderful gallery of birds with long wingspans this week. Just wanted to make mention that Lisa’s Vulture looks like a magician performing a “ta da” moment!


Welcome to the newcomers, Karen & Becky.
