Earth Day

I’m a 24/7/365 celebrator of Earth — doubters could start with oxygen — but here, for the official Earth Day, are some of the avian life forms who’ve visited my part of the ol’ oblate spheroid this week.For instance, this Summer Tanager (Piranga rubra) hawking for insects over water for days. Wowza!And this Indigo Bunting (Passerina cyanea) doing much the same, but ranging a little further afield.Pity I couldn’t get a frontal view of this male Blue Grosbeak (Passerina cerulean) with the camera, though. Red-eyed Vireo (Vireo olivaceus). It’s often hard to see the eponymous red eyes, but this one was very obliging. While it looks like the bird’s lower bill is broken, I think that there is just something in it.Kingbird, Tyrannus tyrannus.

What riches!

    I was in Florida for Earth Day, so many different birds. Saw herons, egrets and some I knew were warblers but since I don’t know bird songs and could not find them in the dense trees, palms and other growth did not know what they were. You are a font of knowledge, a true autodidact. Thank you for sharing your wonderful pictures and love of the avian species. Most definitely saw one small raptor atop a tall dead tree obviously scouting for prey in the fields below.
