Feathers on Friday

Townsend's Solitaire

A Townsend’s Solitaire from Vermillion Lakes the other day. Birding has been slow recently, so I haven’t got photos of anything more exiting.

Feathers on Friday

I ran into a pair of Common Ravens bathing in the snow on Tuesday. I chose this photo because it looks a bit like the raven crash-landed on the creek bank.

Mountain Chickadee

Mountain Chickadee

Earlier this week I thought that Chickadees are not appreciated enough on the web, and so this Feathers on Friday is to the common Chickadees of the mountains, Boreal and Mountain. These four are taken in the last few days in Canmore, the day after I saw (rather unnervingly) my first wolf!

Not the greatest photo, as the light was poor, but it is not everyday (especially in winter) that you see this. Mallards.

Feathers on Friday

A trio of European Starlings perched on a telephone pole. If these birds stick around, they may be the only Starlings we get on the Christmas Bird Count.

Rock Pigeon

A Rock Pigeon walks along the side of a bridge.
Though this urban bird is often ignored by birders, and is hated by many people, it is still a pretty bird, and worthy of a photo.
