Nesting




The local eagles are Nesting.



This nest is quite large and has a top look-out area as well.  I am doing Nests for ABC and Wild Birds.
We are at the letter "N" for the ABC Wednesday meme.


The local herons are also visiting their nests. These are for Wild Bird Wednesday.  One is Black and White for Black and White Wednesday.


Now I will add some Night  scenic photos.  These are for Our World Tuesday.


For Water World Wednesday.


This is for Outdoors Wednesday.


The photo below is for Blue Monday.


This is a  photo for Ruby Tuesday too.


Here is an Anna's Hummingbird for Nature Notes Tuesday.

For more Black and White Wednesday I have two Northern Crows.


To finish I have some Native carvings and photos.



I put in my posts for a few days as I have very bad eyes.
Thank you to these meme hosts for allowing bloggers to share their story.  Click on these links to find great blogs and photos.

Hello,
Thank you for visiting me today and leaving a comment.
I am happy to note that you had a similar Moped as my Dad's.

Your captures are very beautiful.
I am very inspired by them - particularly that of the Anna's Hummingbird.

You have Happy Day!
Peace :)

I was at a reserve this past Sunday and there were a lot of nesting birds. It is so special to see, even if they are high in the air.

colleen said...

Love that wing span swoop. I've never seen a hummingbird like that. I think I have a mockingbird in my yard because it goes through the gamut of every song I've ever heard.

stardust said...

Dear Nora - Wonderful shots! Especially the spread eagle is so dynamic and the night view is soothing.

The eagles are such impressive birds. Great photo showing the huge wingspan. Although we have Blue Herons around here, I have never seen a nest. The herons look rather funny perched up in the tree. Especially beautiful colour in your 1st nighttime photo, but the all the photos are terrific.

Pamela Gordon said...
