Let's play "find the bird"

I've been away from blogging for a while.

I wish I came back with lots of great pictures and stories to share with you... Instead I bring you a "game"... I call it "find the bird"... (Click on pics to enlarge)


I know, I have to get a better camera and enter the exciting world of digiscoping. Not a chance for me to do so anytime soon, so, please, play along...


Find the heron, the killdeer, the hummingbird...


Try seeking for the Saffron Finch or the Tropical Kingbird...


Pretend you do like the game (at least until I get a REAL camera and stop taking such bad pics)

I love the 'proud' way the Tropical Kingbird is perched there, very appropriate name.

I miss birding with you Mel...

It's like "Where's Waldo" ... but more educational. Well done.

Good to have you return! I'm looking forward to more posts & pictures.

Nice pictures. They were not hard to find with the photos enlarged. The Kildeer looks the same as ours here in Canada but the other birds are new to me.

Dear Mel,

That was fun. I love seeing your birds and knowing all is fine with you.
Namaste,

Birds are tricky things to see at the best of times........especially hidden among rocks the cunning little blighters.

Good to see you back on your blog on the other side of the Pacific Ocean.........

Thank you guys for the nice comments. Life has been complicated lately and I missed so much visiting you and enjoying nature.
I do hope for better days, and I am thankful for having met such great people from all over the world.

Thank you all :)

What a fun post Mel! I loved "finding" those birds. I too would like to enter the world of digiscoping, but then I'd never want to go to work! ;-)

Mel,

Your photos are great! Don't say they are not!

I found the heron in the first pic, next the Killdeer, then the hummingbird. The other two are great, too.

Nice to hear from you again, Mel.

Hi again Mel :-)

I 'played' and it was fun! I loved the first two photos - I love stone :-D

Yes, I agree with others that your pics are great. I crop most of my photos and find it is a great way to see them too.

Welcome back to blogging :-D

Gotta love birds. They can be right in front of you and they somehow can be invisible.

Dear beautiful Mel, I loved your comment on my site and am so glad to reaquaint!!! :) I actually looked at the large size pictures and found the bird. I laughed over this post when you wrote "find the bird." Of course I was instantly curious. You are not only talented, filled with warm humor but also kind hearted. I like that; it touches me. Your kindness is reflected in all your posts but strongly in the previous post. You are about others in the world. I relate to that very much.

Sending you a big hug Mel, and lots of love,
Robin

PS HAve you heard of the organization called KIVA.org. They are amazing. Also the www.girleffect.org. I think that is an ORG and not COM. Try both.

I will be visiting you all soon, I just need to finish my thesis sometime on this lifetime to be free again! hahaha

Besos,

Mel
