Rain, Rain, go Away…

Rain, Rain, go Away…

Let me tell you, it’s not easy birding when it is raining all the time! I’ve had a lot of rain over the last few days and it looks like it will continue for forever! Actually, it will probably end in about 4 more days!!!

I know that the rain is good for the plants and my green beans are thrilled, but enough is enough…I’m beginning to wonder if I should be building an ark!

Needless to say, I haven’t been out birding in a few days, so I thought I would just show you some of the photos that I’ve taken in the past…

If you want to guess the birds, just wait to scroll down past the photo to find out what it is. This bird can be found in the US from Colorado south into Texas.

Did you guess the Scissor-tailed Flycatcher? It looks like a slim delicate bird, but don’t let it fool you, they will attack larger birds without hesitation if they come near their nest!

So how did you do? Here is another bird to try your luck at… This bird is found from southern Canada south into Mexico and can also be found in the Galapagos in the winter.

It’s the Great Blue Heron. This one was sunning himself along with some turtles on a log. They are the largest heron in North America. You usually can find them standing very still along the water’s edge hunting for fish. 

They do eat mostly fish, but I’ve seen them eat a snake! See the photo below (if you want to see it eating a snake, but if you don’t like snakes, you may want to skip it)…

I did warn you…

Hope its sunny where you are! Remember to stay healthy and stay safe!!!
