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!

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. You have a far better chance of being grabbed by a predator or bird of prey when you are alone. Birds don’t have to worry about social distancing and those who travel together, have a higher percentage to survive.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Domesticated Birds

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.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Rare Birds

A rare bird is considered a species of bird that is almost never seen in an area to which it normally exists in habitat or migration.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Yellow or Orange Legged Birds

Because they are long-distance migrating birds, they have to fatten themselves up during the off seasons to have enough fuel to get to their breeding grounds. Failure to get enough nutrient will find these birds not making it to the breeding or wintering grounds.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Birds of Prey

Birds of Prey or raptors include species of birds that primarily hunt and feed on vertebrates that are large relative to the hunter. They have a keen eyesight to find and capture their food, often while flying high in the sky. They have strong talons for grasping and killing their prey and also have strong curved beaks to tear their food apart.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Birds at the Feeder

Welcome to Week #8 of the Bird Weekly Photo Challenge. Week #8 challenge is Birds at the Feeder. I did not set this challenge with myself in mind. We don’t put seed in our feeders during our summer months. Why, you ask? Well…it’s because the Swallow-tailed & Mississippi Kites are prominent in our neighborhood during the summer.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Black & White – Sepia

Week #7 challenge is Any bird (your choice) in black & white or sepia tone. Post as many or little as you choose. Have fun with your settings, filters or get creative in Photoshop. Leave a splash a color if you would like as long as the majority is black and white.
