Five On The Wire – #3


Sharing a third post in my series of five bird species perched on a wire.ย  Always a great time to get profile shots!

Some might be a bit common as in these two….

  1. Another great series, Donna! What a wonderful eye you have for spotting all of these interesting and beautiful birds.

  2. Wonderful to see all these birds on the wire, Donna. In all my decades of birdwatching, I have never seen an ibis, green heron or cattle egret on a line. Excellent captures!

    • Thank you, Jet! I believe I’m with you, on never seeing those three before this past winter. The Green Heron took a bit of an effort to get because of traffic going at 50 mph, but I spotted him and luckily got turned around finally and went back. I had to have his shot, it was unique for me! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Thank you! Those blue eyes on the White Ibis are stunning, I just can’t get over how pretty they are. I had the best of luck with birds on wires in the 8-10:00 a.m. and the sky was always such a pretty blue background at that time. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. The Collared-Dove is so pretty! We don’t have them up here. I wonder if they hang around with Mourning Doves where their ranges overlap or if the flocks keep pretty separate. Very lovely Five On The Wire collection, Donna.

    • Thank you, Barbara! The Eurasian Collared-Dove was introduced to the Bahamas in the 1970’s, and quickly went to Florida. They are now widespread around most of the U.S., except for the Northeast. The Northeast is now gaining numbers as well, so keep your eye out, they are around! Also, surprisingly, even though the Collared-Dove is a peaceful bird, it will chase Mourning Doves, Cardinals and Blue Jays away.
