Some Summer Odds and Ends


During the past few weeks, I was only able to get out for only a few short birding stints.  However, I did compile from those little trips, a few new photos.  The migration hasn’t begun down here yet, so I am seeing mostly just the usual resident birds.  These images show you a few of what we have here during the summer.  Enjoy and click on any image to see enlargements.

  1. Just beautiful photographs. Several of those birds are not easy to get either. I don’t know if I’ve every really seen the yellow bill on the cuckoo that well. Thanks for the treat! 🙂

  2. Always had a soft spot in my heart for the Roadrunners…. Must stem back to my childhood watching Wylie Coyote and the Roadrunner.

  3. Great variety there, Bob! Kinda like a study of bills….very interesting! Hang in there; migration is on the way. hugs
