Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #49

Week #49 challenge was Black and white photos of birds with a spot of color (technical challenge). Your choice of birds for week of 5/28/21.

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.

I knew we would have a lower turn out this week because not everyone has the technical ability to do this challenge. We will welcome them back in the weeks moving forward. I was impressed with the techniques you used and the different WP blocks. Here is an oxymoron haiku that I wrote for this theme.

Monochrome color
Magical transformation
A spec of genius.

In Color

I’m sharing one of my all time favorite songs of all time that goes with this theme. This too is the opposite of what we did. The song shows putting color back into photos which is quite difficult. This is why we always want to photograph in color and create black and white in post-production or in this case selective color. We have the technology to record everything in color and go from there.

Cee’s Scaup
Beth’s Painted Bunting
Maria’s Mew Gull

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 #50: Two or more bird species in one photograph. Your choice of birds. (6/4/21)


I look forward to seeing your creations this week!

    • Sometimes less is more and I love this challenge so much! Everyone did a great job with their coloring. I can’t wait to see those Bee-eaters someday. 🙂

    • I thought so too Margaret! We missed you but I completely understand. This challenge isn’t for everyone. It will pop in from time to time because it is fun! 🙂

      • Never too late to learn. There are so many things my grandkids can do on electronics these days and I just can’t get passed the big brick wall. LOL! 🙂

      • Sounds good to me. Photoshop Elements seems to be easier and I will do a post on it when it gets close to the next time we do the challenge if you want to look into that. Marsha and few others use it. It is not as complicated. 🙂


    • Sure were and everyone did an amazing job on their selections. 🙂 I got a compliment on your Scaup today.


    • I certainly agree Shweta! A lot of talent! I’ve missed coming by your blog. I’ve missed coming by everyone’s blogs. I’m barely getting one or two blogs out a week. My business has picked up and I’m spending my days working. 🙂
