Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #42

Week #42 challenge was Birds seen in the past two weeks.

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.

Welcome to all our newcomers!

We were only able to go out birding a couple of days in the two weeks leading up to this challenge. The weather didn’t cooperate because of severe thunderstorms for days! We did make it to St. Marks Wildlife Refuge and had a wonderful day of birding. You all had very inspiring photos this week and many birds that I have seen and many that I have not. Thank you for sharing your birds!

Yesterday, I lost my SD card while picking strawberries. It has not been found. It had all my photos from the past two weeks and much much more! I’ve been a bit devastated by it and somewhat depressed. I’m not a depressed person but I’m a little beside myself right now. I had all my birds with chick photos on it and now I’m having to try to find photos that will go with the theme this week. I will probably be late posting it later today.

Just like in show business…”The Show Must Go On”. So, the Marine in me has kicked in and I have “Adapted and Overcome”. With that said, I have added “baby birds” or anything like that. I have to use archived photos this week for sure.

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!


Pelican Statue photographed by Russell. I had to add it as you know my affections for this bird.

Next up: Week #43: Birds with chicks or baby birds. I’m having to adjust this theme!


I look forward to seeing your creations this week!

  1. So sorry the SD card disappeared before you a chance to download your photos. I am sure you will have many more wonderful shots very soon. 😊

    • I hadn’t had time to move them to my external hard drive. Thank you for the sweet comment. I just need to get out again. Maybe next week. We get our second covid shot on Wednesday and I don’t expect to feel good enough to go birding for a few days. 🙂
