Pretty Bird! Pretty Bird!
Welcome to another edition of our Member’s Bird Photography Showcase! Lots to show off today to so let’s get to it!
Let’s start off with a striking bird from Australia – a Crested Pigeon. If you ever wondered what a crest on a bird was take a look at that giant peak atop the head of his pigeon. Well named and well photographed, Rebecca!
We often think of Blackpoll Warblers as having orange feet, but as Linlark so capably demonstrates below, the Golden-crowned Kinglet also has them. Not shown here, but sometimes there is a touch of orange in the Golden Crown.
I enjoy reading about the shots our members submit and Bajadreamer does a great job of including interesting information in the Description field of this colorful Many-colored Rush Tyrant. Just click the picture to read all about it!
We’ll close out today’s email with one from Emil Baumbach of an American Avocet. These delicate-looking shorebirds breed during the summer in the plains states, west of the Mississippi River and then winter along the coastlines of the US and Mexico so they are rare but regularly seen in Chicagoland. It’s always a treat when we do see observe and Emil caught this one beautifully (a reflection, too!).
Keep em coming!
