Birds ~ Herons, Cranes Egrets, Bittern

April 22, 2015

Most of my bird images are from the Pacific Northwest, mainly the Columbia River Gorge.  In my Audubon Guide these are called ‘Long-legged Waders’.

    As I sit here in Upstate NY @ 9pm on 4/22, 36 degrees with snowflakes in the air ~~~ this sure was a beautiful escape from the mountains of the East Coast!!


  2. Aw, so sorry your spring is cold and snowy Katie, but you know I appreciate your comment and I’m happy I could assist in your escape.

    I have 2 nesting pairs of birds on my birdfeeders. One pair eats the feeder on the left and they are Cardinals and the right side feeder is Blue Jays. It’s one of my slices of heaven.


  4. Chris, that’s wonderful. We don’t have Cardinals here, they are so beautiful. Love it when our backyard birds bring their young to ‘train’ at our feeders!
