Mike’s Monday Pics – More In The Meadow
Last week I shared some pictures of Bobolinks I took while out in the middle of a meadow. I received several nice comments on the pic that was a wider crop showing a Bobolink to the left balanced by some purple flowers on the right – thanks!
There were other birds in the meadow other than bobolinks that I was able to capture. Take a look:
The Field Sparrow is often described as “cute.” I don’t know if it is the small white eye ring, the tiny pink bill, or the whole package. It certainly is cuter than a Bobolink.
In the meadow there were many Savannah Sparrows. The word “savannah” means a grassy plain in tropical regions, which we do not have in Illinois but we do have meadows and prairies, in which these small birds thrive.
I was walking down a fence in next to a meadow and this Eastern Bluebird perched on one of the poles. It was certainly blue but when I looked at the pictures at home the blue was practically glowing. I don’t know if the camera enhanced the colors or if I just didn’t see how blue it was while in the field.
