Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #30

Week #30 challenge was Birds starting with the letter “C”.

Disclaimer: If anyone has an issue with me using their photos in the round ups, please kindly let me know. I haven’t had anyone say anything, but I don’t want you to think I’m using your photographs for personal gain. I’m here to show what great work you are doing with your photography by showing you off in these posts.

What a lucky week this was. I couldn’t have planned it any better than I did if I had tried. Since I set the challenges pretty much at random with little planning, to actually see birds that match the theme for the week that I saw them was pretty incredible. Given the fact that I saw a Cinnamon Teal and Canvasback on two separate birding adventures in different parts of Florida for the weekly challenge was mind blowing. The Cinnamon Teal was seen south of Jacksonville near Cape Canaveral at Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge (2 1/2 hour drive one way). The Canvasback was spotted in the pond adjacent to the St. Marks Lighthouse at the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge near Tallahassee, Florida (3 hour drive one way) which is west of Jacksonville. Both were day trips. We got up at dark-thirty and got home late but before midnight on both trips.

Y’all outdid yourselves with your “C” birds. New birds that I would only see here were shared. There were some technical glitches this week. Two of you I didn’t get your pingback but luckily I found your blogs. I hope there were not others.

Welcome to the newcomer Tracy.

I encourage you to visit these blogs if you haven’t already and see what amazing things they have going on. If I missed your post or there was a problem with a pingback, please let me know and I will be glad to add you to the list. Remember to pingback from my post of that week and not my page. Liking my page is encouraged!

Next up: Week #31: Butts in the Air! Please try to identify what you saw if possible. If not, this will be a photos of “moon shots” of random birds. LOL!


I look forward to seeing your creations this week!
