Here are some of the short legged birds I’ve seen:

  • Seagulls – seen at the beach at Corpus Christi TX
  • Yellow & black birds at a feeder at Ft. Davis TX
  • Dove (or maybe a Grackle) standing on a swing railing (our front yard)
  • Red breasted robin in our tree in the front yard
  • Grackle standing on a water bowl (with piece of cat food in it’s mouth) on our back porch

Bird Weekly – Flocks

Standard

Bird Weekly – Flocks

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Flocks of Birds

***

We have flocks of birds here at different times. Sometimes it’s a flock of grackles being all noisy in the back yard or the trees. Sometimes there are flocks of doves, all trying to eat the cat food on the porches. But the biggest flocks are the Canada Geese that come flying in in the autumn. They are in the thousands, and land on the little lake by our house, staying all winter. They are very noisy, too.

  • Lots of Canada Geese at a local lake
  • Wild turkeys at a friend’s place
  • Canada geese flock flying over
  • Lots more Canada geese flying over
  • Even more Canada geese flying over
  • A flock of buzzards flying high

First photo is really old. It’s the green and yellow parakeet we had named Igor. He was a cool bird, who could say a few words – his name, and pretty bird. Here he is sitting on top of large wine bottle that has different colored melted candle wax running down the sides.

This little blue parakeet we saw in the pet store here.

This is a poster/sign at the pet store of a green & yellow parakeet. The caption says, “Will Chirp for seed”.

This is a really pretty red orange colored canary at the pet store.

This is a bronze colored chicken that my cousin had on his farm one year.

These are a couple of big turkeys at my cousin’s farm.

A real penguin we saw at the Kansas City Zoo with yellow feet, and a stuffed chicken with yellow feet we saw at the farmer’s market one time.

Last photo is of some brownish ducks, one I’m pretty sure is a Mallard, by a local lake. they all have orange feet. 😉 (you can click on the last photo of the ducks to enlarge)
