Friday Field Trip - English Birds

One of my critique partners thought he'd share birds he sees where he lives--which is England. The one on the feeder was taken in Ireland, which is close enough. (OK, the last one isn't really a bird, but even though Steve is a computer programmer, he does have a sense of humor.) Thanks to Steve Pemberton for sending them. I'm sure some of you out there have been places and taken pictures. Would love to see them. And remember, your own back yard is "somewhere else" to the rest of us.









(Yes, there are birds here--anyone know what kind they are? The location is a clue)

Love the birds! But I can't identify the ones toward the end of the post...

Elizabeth, Steve didn't identify many of them beyond "bird at feeder", or "some kind of hen." Maybe some better versed in ornithology will step forward.

Thanks for that shot of the White Tower. England. Sigh. Did you know the saying of if those particular birds leave the Tower, the Tower will fall? Which is why, of course, they clip their wings.

I can't identify them either, but I love looking at the pictures. Birds are amazing creatures. Thanks to Steve for sharing.

Terry Odell said...

Elspeth, yes. When we were in England we toured the tower and saw the ravens.

Stacy - thanks for stopping by. I'm sure Steve appreciates your comments.
