Well here we are at the end of the alphabet.
Today we take a look at the letter 'Z'.
Since I have not seen a Zebra bird I had to find something else.
The first bird is more commonly known as a White-crowned Sparrow,
for today I will use it's scientific name of 'Zonotrichia levcophrys'.
Aside from a name like that,this is a beautiful bird.
The plaintive whistle is a welcome sound in early spring.
We usually see this bird on the ground,scratching for food.
I believe this bird was waiting his turn at the feed on the ground.
Here is another view of this spring bird. Next I want to show you another common bird,the Mourning Dove. Yes,this bird too has a special scientific name,'Zenaida macroura'. Below is a picture I took last summer. It seems as though the Mourning Doves were having a convention. Mourning Doves look so soft and gentle. You can almost see the tenderness in this dove's eyes. Their gentle cooing is one that I look forward to in spring. Jake was lucky enough to capture this one in flight.
I am almost sorry to have it end,it has been most enjoyable for me.
Because I don't want this to end too quickly,here is a quick review of all the letters.
