Wild Bird Wednesday

Turkey Vulture

Turkey Vultures are a favorite of mine.  They are social birds amongst themselves and even in captivity.  Once they are habituated to their human handlers, they are friendly and playful.  They are, in their own way, beautiful birds.

Wild Bird Wednesday

The Great White Egret

I haven't seen many egrets in our area for the past several years.  When I do spot one it is usually the Snowy Egret, so to come across a Great White Egret was quite a treat.   Enjoy :)

Wild Bird Wednesday


I want to say Mr. & Mrs. Goldfinch, but my instincts tell me this is father and son ... what do you think?  Once again some of these pictures were taken through the same dirty windows as last week ... you can clearly see when I got out of the car :)
