Wild Bird Wednesday and some Lifers

In birding there are plenty of birds you “know about” but have never seen. When you finally see it in person, it’s a “lifer.” Not all of these below are lifers, but still beautiful birds.

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    And they’re all pretty amazing birds. Love your background by the way. Beautiful peacocky colors.

      Yes, they’re all beautiful in their own distinct way. Glad you liked the background. That’s a fractal, though I picked it because I liked the earthy colors.
