Good Morning GreatBird Pics Members!
I can’t believe we’re half way through January already! Around here in the U.S. midwest January is typically a slow birding month. I was able to get out yesterday with Birding Buddies Mark and Joan and we spotted over 30 species – not too shabby for this time of year. Many of them spotted though the scope so no pictures taken but our members have recently submitted some great pics. Let’s take a look:
First up, lovejoy from the UK shared his wonderful picture of a Blue Tit (more adolescent giggling) on a patch of red berries. Striking colors!
Birdman has the ability to turn a ho-hum bird into a spectacular picture. Many people overlook the Starling as a photo subject but as you can see in his pic, the Starling has a most unusual pattern on its feathers.
Birder2011 caught a rare sight – a Northern Harrier perched. They are usually soaring over fields but I’ve rarely, if ever, seen them like this. Great composition!
Finally today a picture with lots of firsts for GreatBirdPics: first picture from Nicaragua, first picture of an Agami Heron, and most importantly first picture from our newest member Wolfbird. Wolfbird hails from Lebanon, PA. Say ‘hi’ to Wolfbird – I’m looking forward to more of his Greatbirdpics!
That’s it for now. Have a great Weekend. Lots more beautiful bird pictures in the Latest Pics section.
Stay safe. Go birding. Take pics. Post here. Repeat.
