World Bird Wednesday

Time once again for Word Bird Wednesday!  You don't have to be an experienced bird watcher or photographer (Thank the LORD) to join in the fun.  All you really need is a love of birds--observing them, photographing them, feeding them, learning about them, sharing them, enjoying them--or just ooohing and ahhhing over the finds of others.  Whatever it is you enjoy about birds, join up with Springman's Word Bird Wednesday at The Pine River Review.  You won't be sorry--unless you miss it.


I never noticed that I had put WORD instead of WORLD in this meme until it was pointed out to me last week---but, as our friend at Duck or Grouse commented: "WORD would suit just as well, considering the eloquence of our host :-)" So, I'm just going to leave it that way in the body of the post unless Springman prefers a change. 

Mr. Mallard cleaning up:

Beautiful images of a lovely bird. The Mallard is the only bird that will come to feed when kids first feed the Ducks. A beauty.

Nice to see the Mallard is present in the US as well.
