Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #50

Week #50 challenge was Two or more bird species in one photograph. (6/4/21)

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 really enjoyed this challenge because we were not focused on just one single bird. I left many of my photos uncropped so you could get more of the scene that was seen by me. Safety in numbers is one of the first lessons we are taught as children. Birds are quite similar and not just within their own species but they help protect others species by sounding an alert when a predator is near.

Two birds that tend to flock together during spring migration on the east coast of the U.S. is the American Robins and Cedar Waxwings. I couldn’t find my photos of them so I didn’t share any. Since my neighbor cut down most of his trees, the waxwings haven’t been with the robins the last two season. NO BERRIES!

Susan tried to capture two birds together. I included her swan. She stated that her phone’s storage alerted “FULL” so she wasn’t able to take another photo with the duck in it. Keep trying Susan! That kind of stuff has happened to all of us.

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!

  1. Thank you, Lisa, for including me and my “missing duck.” Hee hee. What a great collection of photos. Joanne’s swan and one mallard look like they are having a little chat. I love the shot of that flamingo too. 🙂

  2. Great selection of photos from everyone! I skipped this challenge as I had too few photos – I’ve realised that as soon as I see a bird my instinct is to zoom in on it so even if there are other birds around they don’t make it into the shot 😉

    • I was wondering about that. So, with that said, can you host Bird Weekly next week? If not, I will push it out a week. I just got scheduled for surgery on Thursday out of town. Preop stuff on Monday and Tuesday, travelling on Wednesday and Thursday I will be out…literally. It is okay if you can’t. I will just move all my weeks down a week and take next week off. 🙂

      • I’m happy to help if I can. Is this for the stripes and spots theme? When would I need to publish the post? Perhaps you could send me more info via my contact form so we can exchange emails before I commit!
