'D' birds are not as numerous as some others.
Never-the-less they are special in many ways.
The first one I am choosing to show is a bird seen in our
area year round.The Downy Woodpecker is quite an attractive bird.
The first picture(taken by Ruth)is just outside my kitchen window.
All the remaining pictures are done by Jake
Here the male Downy identified by his red cap is at the suet.
In this picture his back shows up well and it almost looks downy. Love them or not,the Double-crested Cormorant is present on our local waters.
I personally am not a great fan of this bird,but they do have their place in nature as well.
The Dickcissal is not common in our area.
Jake found this one just south of Morden a few years ago.
We have only seen it that one year,but keep on hoping it will return.
He almost looks like a small version of the Meadowlark.
Take time to enjoy God's created world.
