Recent Birds: Photos

Here are the birds that I have recently been writing about.

American White Pelicans at Columbia Bottoms Conservation Area

American Coots at C. Bottoms

The Ducks that visited our pond. Left are 3 Blue-winged teals (Female behind plant on far left), to the right is the pair of Mallards, and the 3rd male Teal behind them.

Mrs. Mallard in flight!

The female Teal, a little better view

The Little Blue heron, another visitor.

The Green Heron also a pond visitor, along with...

this Solitary Sandpiper (there are 2 this yr.)

These Canada geese visited the field in front of us a few months ago, but they can represent the lone goose that is usually found there right now.
The friendly pair

 Why the grin? Do I look THAT funny to you?

Looking off into the distance: I love this ridiculously dramatic pose!
 BTW I did pass the Nat. Sciences CLEP, though it was a low score of 53. No matter, that tells me I saved time!
