Welcome to Week #46 of the Bird Weekly Photo Challenge. Week #46 challenge is birds perched up on anything.
Welcome to Week #43 of the Bird Weekly Photo Challenge. Week #43 challenge is Birds with chicks or Baby Birds or Nests with Eggs.
Tricolored Herons are slender birds with feathers of blue-gray, lavender and white. The white belly and stripe going up to the neck sets it apart from other herons.
Week #39 of the Bird Weekly Photo Challenge is birds that eat fish as their primary diet. Some of my photos this week have been in other blogs, not necessarily Bird Weekly, but some are being recycled specifically for this challenge. Not all my birds were caught eating fish, but they are fish eaters. You do not have to show your fishing eating birds in the act.
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!
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.
The feature image is a Pileated Woodpecker. The old Woody Woodpecker himself. More information on him below. Keep scrolling!
The feature image is a Black-crowned Night Heron. They give us plenty of photo opportunities up close and personal when we visit Lettuce Lake Park in Tampa, Florida.
Long-legged birds tend to have a pronounced strut when they walk. Long legs are something I know nothing about since I’m only 5′ 1″ tall. I related much better to the short-legged bird challenge.
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.
