Swallow-tailed Kite flying low above our front yard.

All of us are going to have a different variety for this week so I can’t wait to see what everyone else is seeing from their window, front porch, back patio area or wherever you enjoy the likes of our feathered friends near and around your home.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Owls

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Birds Starting with an “A”

Week #18 challenge is Birds starting with the letter “A”. The letter “A” needs to be at the beginning of one or more of the name. For example, Some of my favorite shots are going to be shared in this post. A few have made appearances before and some are new to my blog world.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Flocks of Birds

You know we teach our children to stay together. Safety in numbers! The same is true for birds. Being by yourself is a risky proposition.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Domesticated Birds

Swan Goose in Riverside Park, Jacksonville, Florida.

I think everyone has seen a seagull at some point in their lives. They are not just a coastal species, they are inland as well. Generally, they don’t venture out to sea, except the kittiwakes. They are closely related to the terns and distantly related to auks, skimmers and other waders. They range is size of 11 1/2″ to 30″ and all basically have the same shape.
