Yesterday’s Birds

Moon in Tangle Heart Tree at sunset

We have cloud cover tonight with snow predicted by early morning. Therefore, I’m posting the birds I photographed yesterday.

Actually, there were two flickers at the tiptop of Susan’s Tree at dawn.

The Canadian Geese complained that I have not been giving them enough attention.

  1. Beautiful as always Tim……🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩

  2. Woah, that flicker bird is magnificent! I have never seen one before in my life. It’s so beautiful. I do often see geese flying together, though! Thank you for sharing. πŸ™‚

  3. Nice assortment of birds. Flickers are common up here, but I have not seen one as fat as those! Food supply might be more to their liking at the Bosque…

    • Thanks, Dale. This lens is equivalent to 640mm, but the photos of the flickers are still really cropped. They were way up in the tree.

  4. So many beautiful birds! I like the pattern of the flicker’s plumage. The way, the Cooper’s Hawk watches out for prey is very similar to his European realtive, Accipiter nisus

    • Thanks, Mary Jo. Flickers are good sized birds and they puff up nicely. The donkey is cute grazing with the cranes.

  5. What beautiful shots, Tim. I particularly enjoyed seeing the flickers. The other night I got a good look at that sliver of a moon. There’s something so intriguing to me about that phase of the moon. I hope you don’t get more snow than you want. I haven’t looked at the forecast here… but any sort of moisture would be welcome. It seems like a very long time since we’ve had any. Hugs on the wing.
