World Bird Wednesday

It was a great week for finding new (to me) species of birds. I have always had a great love for birds, but never spent a lot of time out in nature looking for them until the past year. It is always so exciting to spot an unfamiliar species, snap a shot then head home to try to identify what I saw. This week I was lucky enough to spot quite a few Yellow-rumped Warblers, a bunch of Eastern Bluebirds, and a Kestrel. I saw a couple more unidentifed species, but was unable to get close enough to get a decent shot. Maybe tomorrow! Wish me luck. Until next week, here are the shots:

Female Eastern Bluebird
Male Eastern Bluebird
Kestrel
Yellow Rumped Warbler

Great shots!! I wasn't so lucky this week. I did get my first shot/s of a Towhee but not good enough to post. I have Towhees and Thrush alot but I can never seem to get a shot of them without the chain link between us.

Great shots Tracey! It looks like you may have some Eastern Bluebirds nesting soon?
