They are called mourning doves for the sounds they make. My luck I only see the mutes.

If you were king, wouldn’t you try to keep up pretences at the palace?


Posed

I wish every bird was as cooperative.


Downtown Bird

The chirping of the sparrows often wakes me in the morning, a delightful reminder of nature.


Mayfly

Mayflies have short life spans. They live above water between five minutes (females) and two days (males). Hopefully this one made the most what time it had.


Pekin Duck

I have not seen the ducks in a while, I am hoping its the weather that’s keeping them inside.


Starling

The painterly background just highlighted this beautiful bird.


What’s with the Paper Clips

The starling was looking good. Paper clips notwithstanding.


Bird Singing

I shot this over the top of our car, but as we pulled up it started singing, still what a welcome.

Pekin Duck

I have taken a number of shots of these very well behaved ducks. For example, they know not go out into traffic which is only a sidewalk away.


Starling

A contemplative stance that impressed me. It could be my imagination but I would guess it’s looking for worms.


Blackbird (Two Photographs)

Hard bird to photograph, all those black feathers. They also have a temper and I didn’t want to test my luck by getting closer.

More of the ducks I showed last week. This week my theme is white, be it the subject or another element of the photo. 


Close Encounter

This is inches from a nest and as the building has more than one nest all in a small area, it’s possible the birds are from different nests.

A block from where I live I found these well behaved ducks on a front lawn. Their owner said they were support ducks. Quite the surprise. More of these friendly creatures later.


Yo!

Not sure if it was the height or another bird that cause this starling to cry out. Regardless it caught the attention of the onlookers.

 


Walking the Ledge

The pigeon is strutting its stuff on the ledge of an old water plant. Given the height of the path around the sunken plant, the pigeon and ledge are at eye level.


House Finch

This House Finch tried hiding in the shadows.


Singing Sparrow

Poor Sparrow has a garbage can for a stage, still it puts everything it has into its singing. Perhaps a lesson for politicians who misuse their pulpits.


Sparrow with an Attitude

Belligerent comes to mind, especially as it was not singing. I like my sparrows singing.


Not Sure What Happened

I used my normal minimal processing steps and low and behold I get this rather exotic looking starling.


Attitude

This sparrow might not have appreciated his portrait being taken. However, they don’t intimidate me.
