Bird of the Day – Gathering Around the Water Cooler

BOTD: August 19, 2019 Great-tailed Grackle

***

Every day the birds gather around the water cooler (the water bowl) out on the back porch. In these photos there are the always present doves, and some grackles.

The grackles love to pick a piece of cat food and dip it in the water for a second. 🙂

photos show:

  • 3 gray doves around blue water bowl
  • 5 gray doves and a black grackle on the porch (one grackle farther off in the grass)
  • Brownish grackle sitting on rim of water bowl, and then dipping piece of cat food into water

Bird of the Day – Robin

We see little robins around here a lot. This one was hanging around the front yard one day. It was going from the tree to the ground and sidewalk, and eating the cat food kibbles we leave for the cats. For some reason, birds just love cat food. 🙂

Photos show a red breasted robin on the ground, and in the tree.

This is a white stork we saw at the Kansas City Missouri Zoo last year. She is white, with some black along the wing edges, and red around the eyes. Her beak is orange. There is also a baby stork with the large stork. They are getting a drink from a black bowl.

This is a roadrunner bird. It is mostly brown and tan with a few white spots. We see them sometimes around here. Most recently one was running down our street, and he was so fast. I didn’t have time to get my camera!

Also, a roadrunner art sculpture made of copper colored metal was in our mall. I have no idea why, but was fun to see it.

Here’s another roadrunner. I admit it’s a bad photo, as I didn’t have a good camera at the time. But it does show how good the bird is at camouflage. They blend in with the dry grasses very well.

Also, a couple of photos of real chickens … a ginger colored one, and two brown ones.
