My Weekly Bird ABC

'E' birds are not as numerous as some others.
I would like to mention that the bird names are ones used in the
Thayer Bird software.
The Eastern Bluebird is not abundant here but is seen every year.
These Eastern Kingbirds were putting on a great display for us. Another shot of the Eastern Bluebird. Obviously this one was feeding some nestlings.
I think these birds are just about the prettiest things around.
Here is another Eastern Kingbird.
This picture shows the banded tail well.
The Eurasian Wigeon is definitely not common in our area.
We were fortunate to see this one at a nature preserve some years ago.
Today's pictures are a mix of Jake's and Ruth's.
Take time to enjoy God's created world.

  2. So good to see the Bluebirds Ruth. Maybe soon? We had Kingbirds nest not far from the house last summer right over the creek.
    Have a wonderful rest of the week.

  10. You are really almost in the middle of the continent so should get some western as well as eastern birds. I wish we had more bluebirds here. Your pictures are lovely.

  12. Bird lovers/watchers living in the middle of the continent have an advantage of seeing both eastern and western species, don't they? Lovely pictures as always, Ruth.
