As I was thinking about this weeks post,I knew which bird had to be first.
The first two pictures are taken by Jake last summer.
This is the Golden-winged Warbler.
This little bird has shown signs of decline and is being watched very carefully.
When Jake saw this bird foraging along the creek in our park he knew it was special.
The pictures are not the best poses,but because the bird is somewhat rare
they are very special to us.
Below,anther photo by Jake of the Green-winged Teal. I think this is the only time we have seen a Green-winged Teal in our area. The picture was taken many years ago,using slide film. A Great-crested Flycatcher posed for Jake last summer. This one was in Winnipeg,Manitoba
He was heading towards the raisins,put out for the Robins.
just down the road from our home.
The Great Blue Heron struck a nice pose for Jake.
I felt fortunate to get this picture,which is not great.
These little guys seldom sit still very long.
While in Winnipeg last year we walked through the park and found this baby Great-horned Owl. He did not seem to mind that I wanted his picture.
