A Few Birds

Tonight I will share just a few pictures of birds that I have previously used in posts.

Red-winged Blackbird, Agelaius phoeniceus, Toronto Zoo, Canadian Domain, PasserineI really like this picture of a red-winged blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus). I took this picture while visiting the Toronto Zoo back in 2012. The bird was just part of the natural surroundings of the zoo and not on exhibition.

The red-winged blackbird is one of my favorite birds to see in nature. I like the flash of red on the wings. The black and red are a good color combination. This picture brings back many memories of seeing them while hiking, running or just driving down country roads.

Peacock, Angry Bird, High Park Toronto, canadaThis picture was also taken in Toronto. At High Park they have another small zoo and this peacock was on display there. I used this picture in a post titled Angry Birds.

Black-necked Stork (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus) - Female - Yellow Iris - Yellow Eyes - Stork couple - Valentine StorkHere is a picture of a Black-necked Stork (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus) that I took at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney. Can you tell if this is a male of female stork? Visit my post Valentine Storks to find out how to tell the difference.

Luzon Bleeding-Heart PigeonSince I am thinking of the Taronga Zoo I am also thinking about this beautiful little bird. This is a Luzon Bleeding-Heart Pigeon (Gallicolumba luzonica). The poor little bird looks like it has been shot.

Sea Gull at Cayucos, CaliforniaI used this picture in a post titled A White Bird Flying. This is the title of a book by Bess Streeter Aldrich. I started the post with the question “Have you ever taken a picture that makes you think of a book?”

You can visit the post to find out why I like this book. It is actually a sequel, and I ended the post with the following statement:

So, grab one of these books, pour a nice cup of hot tea and settle in for a good read.

I may just have to do that 🙂
