The feature image is the best and only photo I have of signs of fall. It was taken last September in Bozeman, Montana. In Florida, we don’t get the change with the red, orange & yellow until January when much of the rest of… Continue Reading “Sunday Stills – Fall Color Ochre – 10.11.20”
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.
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!
Artist Palette is on the face of the Black Mountains in Death Valley National Park. The colors are caused by oxidation of different metals, but it looks like an artist took a paintbrush to it. Artist’s Drive is 9 miles one way with curvy roads and towering mountains on either side.
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.
This is the Atlantic Ocean at Little Talbot Island State Park off of A1A between Jacksonville & Amelia Island, Florida. You can see it was REAL crowded. LOL!
This post is in response to TERRI WEBSTER SCHRANDT Sunday Stills challenge. The theme this week is Water Droplets.
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.
We walked around the fairways while golfers were teeing off.
Week #14 challenge was Flocks. We had some wonderful entries of birds I am well versed in seeing and so many that I’ve never seen before that included all kinds of shorebirds, turkeys, ducks, geese, pelicans, gannets, lorikeets, cedar waxwings, magpies, cockatoos & parrots from Australia…and PUFFINS. My dream bird! Puffins! PLUS – Razorbills!
