SQUARES – The Edible Kind

This week on Bird Weekly, we explored Owls. On that post at the end, I posted a photo of these Owl cookies that I made 5 years ago for my Bunco friends when I hosted the game in December, 2015. They turned out exactly like the instructions.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Owls

Barred Owl perched in a tree at Reddie Point Park in Jacksonville, Florida.

Owls are nocturnal meaning they are mostly active at night. There are two species that are truly diurnal (meaning they are active both day and night). They are the Northern Hawk Owl and the Northern Pygmy Owl.

Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #18

When we learn the English alphabet, we are taught, “A” is for apple. This week, “A” is for Anhinga, Avocet, American this and Australian & African that. Then there were the use of the scientific names of our avian favs that took the “A” right out of the box.

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. Anna’s Hummingbird, Smooth-billed Ani or American Goldfinch.

Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #17

Y’all are making it hard for me to choose a bird of the week so I’m not going to but will showcase one bird from each blogger. We had a record 16 entries plus mine this week! Woohoo! Everyone is getting a showcase this week!

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Macro/Close-Ups

Macro photography is close-up photography of small subjects. Mostly bugs and flowers get the spotlight, but today we are doing it on Bird Weekly. Macro is an extreme close-up, but for this post, any close-up will do. I know many of you don’t have a macro lens and that is okay.

Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #16

Week #16 challenge was Short legged birds. Having short legs myself, I can appreciate these birds who have to take short quick steps to get where they need to go on the ground. Unfortunately, I don’t have the ability to fly so my short little legs is all I got! We enjoyed a lot of song birds and some fine exotic birds (okay, maybe exotic to me). It’s funny how those in other countries find the birds in North America to be exotic when we think the same of their birds.

Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #15

Week #15 challenge was Birds with Green Feathers. Green is defined by mixing the two primary colors of blue and yellow which we all learned in grade school. Along with blue & purple, it is considered a cool color whereas, red, orange and yellow are warm colors. Well, there were some COOL birds shared this week! Did you know that green is the second most favorite color just after blue. Green is associated with the color of peace. It is the color of life, renewal, nature and energy.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Birds with Green Feathers

This week is a small offering of birds with green feathers. As I stated in the round-up, I had some computer problems yesterday. Hope you enjoy what I’ve got and can’t wait to see what you have for everyone to see!
