Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #43

A-Z Challenge – R is for Roseate Spoonbill

Roseate Spoonbills are pale pink and white birds with a patch of brighter pink on the shoulders and rump. They are so named because of their spoon-shaped bill. Crustaceans and other aquatic invertebrates contain pigments called carotenoids that help turn their feathers pink after they eat them. The more they eat, the brighter pink in their feathers.

A-Z Challenge – Q is for Quail

Gambel’s Quail live in the Sonoran, Chihuahuan and Mojave deserts in the western part of the United States. They inhabit thorny and brushy vegetation and can be seen along river valleys and creeks.

A-Z Challenge – P is for Pelican

Pelican Island, a part of the Everglades Headwaters NWR complex located off the western coast of Orchid Island in the Indian River Lagoon just east of Sebastian, Florida was the first National Wildlife Refuge in the United States in 1903. President Theodore Roosevelt signed an executive order on March 14, 1903 to protect egrets and other birds from extinction through plume hunting. Shore birds like egrets, herons and pelicans began to thrive. There are two pelicans found in the United States.

A-Z Challenge – O is for Owl

Great Horned Owls usually adopt a nest that was originally built by another species, often an abandoned Red-tailed Hawk or other hawk species.
