This week we’re looking for Starts with B, Week’s Favorite, and Creature.
B: Brown-headed Cowbirds
Week’s Favorite and Creature: Mourning Doves snoozing in the sun on a chilly day.
It’s a snow day for Wild Bird Wednesday here in Virginia Beach! Life ground to a halt, except for those who had to shovel sidewalks and such. We got eight inches or so of the white stuff. With nothing much going on in the front yard, my attention was directed to the bird activity in the backyard.
It looks like a slow day for the Mourning Doves, literally chilling out on the fence. They know how to fluff those feathers for maximum insulation from the cold.
Linking to Wild Bird Wednesday–thanks, Stewart!
I’ve counted birds a couple times this weekend, and plan to again Monday morning. Friday I counted over 60 birds in a 25-minute period, 15 different kinds. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get more pictures. A friend said she’d like to see some of them, so I’m posting a few today. Please pardon the photo quality, my kitchen window needs a good cleaning, but not in this weather! Enjoy!
