Week #33 challenge was a Birds on a Wire or Fence.
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.
Never assume anything when you see birds on a wire. If you have your binoculars in hand, check them out. They are not always the common blackbird, starling or dove. Getting a closer look, may surprise you! That dark looking bird might just be a rare or uncommon bird. This happens to me all the time. I assume it is a crow and upon closer inspection, it is a Purple Martin. The sun plays funny tricks on the naked eye.
Awesome galleries this week with an array of bird species. I have to point out that Karen posted a mystery bird. I need confirmation from my Aussie friends! I searched my book “Birds of the World” and think I have identified it. Please correct me if I’m wrong and tell me what it is if you know. I think the mystery bird is a Yellow-faced Honeyeater. If so, the sun really lit this one up and proves my point as to how lighting plays tricks on our eyes and minds.
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 #34: Birds starting with the letter “D” in the title. (Double-crested Cormorant, Wood Duck)
I look forward to seeing your creations this week!
