Bird Stuff


Just a few more bird and bird-related photos…all taken during a very hot June.


This is a long feather, at least 6 inches. Hawk? Owl?

Birds on Lakeshore

“Keepin’ cool…”

Some of these were taken at home, some at the Franciscan Renewal Center, and the last one at Marguerite Lake in Scottsdale. It was 108 degrees when the birds were at the bubbler…

  1. I remember the birds trying to stay cool. I hate to tell you this now, but our high here today was 46.

    How do you all maintain in that heat. .. .I have known days in Phoenix to be as hot as 126 with heat reverberating off the concrete.

  3. The little hummer is so cute! The birds sure do like the water fountain. 🙂

  4. Could it be a wild turkey?

  5. I LOVE “Slurp,” Candace!
    Such a wonderful shot.
    Happy day to you. 🙂

  6. Lovely bird images- never get any luck capturing humming birds- or any other bird for that matter, they always seem to fly off. Holy Smokes 108 degrees? Wow we topped off at42 yesterday.

  7. All so amazing photos of birds. Particularly the first one is a delightful capture. Is it a hummingbird? Hope things will cool down for you…

  8. With that temperature they birds were dong everything they could to avoid over heating. Fine series of “bird” related things.

  9. Wonderful photos. And I have to say I want a necklace the color that gorgeous hummer is wearing. Rubies perhaps. 🙂

  10. Wow! The patience it must take to shoot birds. Some of these bird names I have never even heard of. My avatar is the only bird picture I have and that is only because my husband was sitting in our hot tub and we had a feeder close by, total fluke. Great work here.
