My Weekly Bird ABC

Starting today I will try to post some bird pictures
in alphabetical order.
Today it is -A
American Coot
We usually have lots of these around in spring and summer. American Goldfinch The bright yellow of these birds is always a welcome sight at the feeders. American Redstart We see these every year,but because of their constant movement it is not easy to get good photos of them. American Crow Always present and mostly unwanted. I do need to remind myself that even the Crow is one of God's creations.
Pictures 1+2 are done by Ruth, 2+3 are by Jake Great are the works of the Lord. Psalm 111:2

  8. I like crows! They are native birds and are particularly striking in the winter. I am interested to see how the Alphabet theme progresses.

  9. Oh, my favorite - hands down - is that American Redstart! He is a tough one to get and I am so wanting to have a personal photo shoot with this little warbler who loves to hide!!!

  17. Ruth, your goldfinch shot shows his beauty in his breeding plumage - lovely. A bright spot for those who are looking at a lot of white outdoors. As for us, it's nice to see the sun shining, but we sure do need the rain.
