Good morning Dawn Choristers! I’m sitting in for lineatus today so that she can catch up on some off-line life stuff.
I thought we’d have a little fun with bird identification this week. I’ll provide a set of photos to start with. You can provide your IDs in the comments, along with your own photos for the rest of us to work on. OK – let’s get started!
Next week’s Dawn Chorus will be hosted by angelajean. She’ll writing about Punto Tumbo and penguins – sounds exciting!
I may be a little late joining the conversation this morning because I’ll be out on an owling adventure on Saturday. A late night may lead to a late morning...
A few notes about this selection of photos - all of the birds depicted are from the western United State - California, Arizona, Alaska. Some are regional specialties, some are long distance migrators, one or two are rarities (at least in my area). If you'd prefer not to play, you can either click on the image or hover over it to get the answers.
A few from a recent outing to Putah Creek Riparian Reserve, not far from home.
I love owls, starting with the one in the intro!
My 15 minutes of fame...
How about some waterfowl?
