There were a few birds out enjoying the Christmas season on Christmas Eve at the ponds and in our backyard on Christmas Day and the day after. Please let me know if
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and, believe it or not, it's almost time to wish you all a Happy New Year!
The first shots are either a cormorant or an anhinga (aka, Snakebird). I leaned towards the anhinga because of the way he was moving his long neck around resembling the movement of a snake. What do you think?
|After searching and searching I think this might be a Yellow-rumped warbler. Let me know what you think. This one was very hard to identify!|
|I'm going with Mockingbird on this one.|
CHRISTMAS DAY in the backyard:
|Sparrows? Warblers? Wrens? Oh my!|
|A downy woodpecker perhaps?|
|I'm going with a sparrow of some sort (wrens and warblers were discussed too).|
|Thanks y'all- I stand corrected. I had this one as a mourning dove but it is an Eurasian Collared-Dove!|
AND THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS, in the backyard:
|An Eastern Bluebird.|
|Two House Finches and a Titmouse.|
|A pine warbler???|
|Another house finch and the bird yet to be officially identified.|
|I know this one! A male cardinal!|
