Voices in the Sky

Spent weekend before last at my brother??s house near Kansas City. Was delighted to see the birds coming to feed on their deck and much enjoyed shooting them. Had some help keeping an eye out and identifying them from my sister-in-law??s father. Thanks for all your help, Pappy!

Bluebird, flying high
Tell me what you sing
If you could talk to me
What news would you bring
Of voices in the sky [youtube.com]….

Below: Northern Flicker (Colaptes auratus)

American Crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos)

Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) - male

Canada Goose (Branta Canadensis)
This shot taken at Wyandotte County Lake.

Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) - female
Notice feathers ruffling in the wind….enlarge me ;)

Bird on right is a cardinal - not sure of his friend on the left.

Fascinating collection! And the unidentified bird in the last seems like the humble house-sparrow from the back.

Excellent series. I like #5 the most, struggling with the weather – that Cardinal looks heroically in some way.

Gosh the Cardinals are just beautiful! I wish we had them in Colorado. The little bird on the left in your last shot could be a Lark Sparrow, or an English Sparrow hard to tell without seeing its face . Hope you are having fun??? WOOO-HOOO

I like them all except #1. That woodpecker variety make large holes in two houses we used to live in that had some cedar siding. They REALLY are agressive, but that's a nice photo of this one!
