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 Round-Up – Week #14

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!

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 Round-Up – Week #13

Some species like the white geese will become aggressive if you feed them. On more than one occasion, this has happened to us. The Florida State Fair Authority in Tampa had to have them removed from the grounds because they were attacking people getting out of their cars at the Administrative Building. The Florida Fish & Wildlife relocated them to a different location.

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 Round-Up – Week #12

I think we all take Seagulls for granted because they are everywhere. From the seaside to the landfills. Along the beaches and in the Walmart parking lot. They are opportunistic birds! We had a wonderful array of gulls in this week’s challenge including several I have never seen before.

Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #11

I have to make mention of one of the coolest things this week and that is the Snowy Owl. The bird in my photo and in Beth’s photo is the same bird. I mean…the exact same bird. Mine taken in Jacksonville and her’s taken in Georgia at the end of 2013, beginning of 2014. We didn’t know each other until this year.

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 Round-Up – Week #10

Week #10 challenge was Yellow or Orange Legged Birds. Lots of ducks and shorebirds, chickens and penguins, a loon and a Scarlet Ibis! Pelicans are my favorite bird…sorry for the prejudiceness, but they are and we had some people American White Pelicans adorn our monitors this week.
