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

My cousin, Mike, raises exotic chickens.

The first photo shows a large black & white chicken with an elaborate all black feathery head-dress. He calls this one Silver. I think it is a Polish Silver breed of chicken.

The next photo is Mike holding Silver.

The next photo is another kind of chicken he is holding. He calls this one Houdie. Could be because it is a breed of chicken called Houdan.  It is a large black and white chicken, with it’s head-dress of feathers of black & white.

Very cool chickens! 🙂

When we visited the Kansas City Zoo, we saw a lot of different kinds of birds. Here’s a few:

  • An Ostrich getting a drink of water
  • A Lorikeet
  • A Lorikeet  perching on our arm (they also perched on our heads and shoulders)
  • A Penguin

And this is just a black bird on the back porch. I think it is a grackle.
