Today I share with you a variety of bird pictures.
I hope you enjoy them at least half as much as I enjoyed getting them.
A few weeks ago when my sister,Becky, and I were out just looking around ,these American White Pelicans came soaring over.
I never get tired of seeing these large birds,soar so effortlessly in the sky.
I showed one other picture of a Black Tern,on a previous post, who was unhappy at my presence.
Here is another one,or maybe the same bird,giving me that evil look.
As I watched these birds I realized quickly why the distress.
Here you can see a Tern sitting on what I presume to be a nest.
I was quite excited to have found this nest,because I had read that they are usually well hidden.I guess there is always an exception,as this was right beside the road.
A little further up the road,this Eastern Kingbird was ready to serve lunch.Yummy!
OK,so I,personally, would rather have a burger,but I'm sure the waiting young Kingbirds will have enjoyed the meal.
On a different day,while I was out alone,I captured this Eastern Bluebird doing a wing wave.The female was just out of the picture,so,this was perhaps a signal to her.
Or maybe he was waving good-bye to me,in hopes that I would leave.
Birds are so fascinating to observe.I am thankful to have had these opportunities to capture these images.
Today I was reminded of a saying my Dad had,so that is my thought for today:
Of all the things you wear,
Your smile is the most important.
Back when I was teenager (that's a long time ago) I would get very upset when Dad used this saying,as I complained about not having anything to wear,or that my hair was not behaving just right.
Today I understand what he meant and agree with this statement.
