Birds

I am not very good at identifying birds, but there are some that are no-brainers. For more information on the Red Wing Black Bird, click here. Yesterday we went for a nice walk along a lake and through a golf course from there it headed into a quiet neighborhood. The dark clouds almost missed us entirely!

Never seen one of them things, around here we got ravens, crows, magpies, and geese. You don't see to many smaller birds in the city unless they've become road pizza.

Well, I wouldn't have know that! :)
We have lots of birds here, too, but mostly they're blue jays, cardinals and robins.

I love redwing blackbirds but we don't get them here.

That's a red wing blackbird? Why do they make these names so complicated? ;) JK ~

Happy spring and happy birdwatching!

No brainer, here. We don't have those here, but they sure are pretty. I love it when you talk about your walks and post pictures. We've had no rain/snow for almost 24 hours in a row, now. Maybe spring has sprung. Hope the weather is clear in your neck of the west.

my youngest was watching a large crow in the school yard near us, got all excited and yelled out, "look mama! A penguin!!!!!"

I miss those from when I was a kid in Klamath Falls... they were everywhere! That area was covered with all kinds of cool birds. :)

My kids and I are studying birds right now and I'm learning a lot.

I spent a lot of time on my newest biography and I appreciate you always enjoying them so I thought I'd let you know :-).
