Week #32 challenge is Birds with brown feathers. This can be a splash of brown or brown all over! Many “girl” birds are brown whereas their more colorful boyfriend flashes his “Liberace” colors!
A couple of weeks ago, Frank & I travelled to the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge near Tallahassee, Florida where we spent 9 hours birding.
Night time in the village 2020. Nothing is to scale so please don’t judge but I enjoy putting this together every year. The town is different each year as I add new pieces and have to build it differently depending on what I purchase.
Dabbling ducks is what came to mind when I set this challenge. They frequent ponds and shallow water for tasty vegetation. Among these ducks are American Black Duck, American Wigeon, Blue-winged Teal, Cinnamon Teal, Eurasian Wigeon, Gadwall, Green-winged Teal, Mallard, Mottled Duck, Northern Pintail, Northern Shoveler and Wood Duck.
What a challenging year 2020 was in many respects. I began my year with a birding blog on January 5, 2020 called “Today is for the Birds” with great excitement because I had just written my first guest blog with Jacksonville Business Connections through my job titled “Unlock the Bird Lover in You for 2020”. Little did I know that it wouldn’t last.
Week #30 challenge is Birds starting with a “C”. As long as one of the words in the title starts with a “C” it is good to go. Like Double-crested Cormorant which could also work for the “D” challenge in a few weeks.
These Roseate Spoonbills were preparing to roost in the trees that line the Hillsborough River at Lettuce Lake Park in Tampa, Florida.
Happy 2021 everyone! Our first Bird Weekly Photo Challenge for the new year! We had some great birding in 2020 despite the challenges the world is facing with the pandemic, economy and job loss.
Yesterday, December 27, 2020, Frank and I went out birding for the Christmas Bird Count (CBC) for the Audubon Society. Our birds were logged onto Ebird.org per the usual. The Canada Goose has become a permanent resident in Florida.
Tricolored Heron pushing his luck with the big ole’ gator. In Florida, where there’s water, there is always a chance an alligator is somewhere to be found.
