Birds, Birds, Birds…

Birds, Birds, Birds…

Here are a few more birds that I’ve seen recently while I’ve been walking through the woods…

These are pretty easy if you want to try to guess what they are.

This is the lovely, lol, Turkey Vulture. They can be found throughout all of the US and Mexico.

Next…

Here’s the Northern Flicker. This one is the Eastern “Yellow-shafted” form. It has bright yellow under its wings and tail. The Western “Red-shafted” form has salmon-pink under its wings and tail.

Here’s the last one…

The Eastern Phoebe. This one was eating berries on the edge of a swamp.

Blue Jay

Blue Jay

Hurray! I finally managed to get a photo of a Blue Jay!!!!

Years ago I used to get lots and lots of Blue Jays eating the seeds on the ground below my bird feeders. Unfortunately, I was not a big birder at that time, so I never took any photos of them…

Lately I realized that I never had many photos of the common birds that I see or hear and the Blue Jay was one of those.

I’ve been trying to get a photo this whole year, I’ve noticed that the Blue Jay seems to stay pretty high up in the trees.

They often have a loud harsh cry, but they also have many other calls, one of them is almost identical to the scream of the Red-shouldered Hawk.

They can be found throughout all of eastern US west to the Central US.
