Wild Bird Wednesday


Mystery Bird
Try as I may, I have been unable to identify this bird.  I spotted it way up in a tree in the wetlands section of the Nature Center,  I can't see enough field markers to be sure what it is ... open to suggestions from those with a better eye than I have :)


Again it is hard to be sure about this bird, but I think it is a immature Meadow Lark, both because of what I can see of it's markings and because I was being serenaded by a Meadow Lark as I walked.

  4. Immatures drive me nuts! You are probably right. The pictures are lovely with the bokay effect highlighting this little beauty.

  5. I'm not sure what bird it is, but it sure is beautiful. Today we're enjoying a lovely summer day, not too warm and a gorgeous breeze to keep things comfy. Hope your weather is super too. Pogo sends woofs to Izzi. You have a great day, hugs, Edna B.

  6. What area/state/country did you take these pictures in?

  7. Sorry to say I can't be much help here! One of the joys / frustrations of birding!

    I think Jackdaw's name could be onomatopoeic, its call is a 'jack, jack' rather than a 'caw, caw' of many other crows - but that's a bit of a guess.
