On June 12, 2020, I will will be posting to this page a new weekly Bird Photo Challenge. You will be able to find upcoming prompts here once I have made the final tweeks to the rules. See ya on Friday!
We were honored with the presence of this bird for a few weeks at the end of 2018 & beginning of 2019. It was a life bird for us.
This bird can be found throughout most of the US, Canada, Mexico and Central America. Lives in the saltmarshes, fresh water marshes, swamps, streams, rivers, lakes & other areas with water and vegetation.
Not to be confused with the apparel available at Nordstrom.
Talk about a fisherman! Anhinga means snake bird and is often referred to by this name.
Small songbird migrates from Canada to Central America. Prominent in the United States.
A social bird lives in the southern United States & Mexico year-round. Migrates & Breeds in the central and northern states as well.
The Gray Catbird lets out a call that mimics the sound of a cat.
This small heron is a patient species who slowly stalks their prey with grace. The strike can be quite violent for the fish on the receiving end.
White Ibis is a wading bird with long legs & a long curved bill. They forage on insects & crustaceans. A flock of them visited our yard this past summer, bringing their off-spring with them. Over 30 birds in our front yard at once. In 3 mornings, they cleared our yard of all grubbs. Talk about a natural pesticide.
The Northern Cardinal can be seen in the central to eastern side of the United States & Mexico. Both the male & female have a brilliant crest upon their head.
