Wild Bird Wednesday 148 – 5-27-2015

Stewart M is our host for Wild Bird Wednesday.  He is such a cheery fellow that lives in Australia.  Please, click here to see all the beautiful birds for all over this wonderful world.

Here are a few of the birds we observed while sitting on our son’s patio.  It over looks a small retention pond.  The cloudy conditions and intermittent rain made the camerawork a little beyond my skills.

I liked the lines of this swallow in flight.

Now I need some help with these two.  I am stumped.

This bird is about the size of a sparrow.

The following two are the second bird in two different views.  This bird was as large as the mockingbird in length.  Apologies for the poor quality.

  1. Love the R-W Blackbird! Nice shot of the swallow in flight. I’ve never been able to catch one on the move. The first bird in question looks like a mockingbird, to me. Could it be a juvenile? I’m not familiar with the second, will be interesting to see who it turns out to be.
