Birds of a Feather – Wild Weekly Photo Challenge



“A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren’t we like that wise old bird? ”

  1. Stunning shots, Jane! I particularly love the head shots of the hawk and the owl…STUNNING work! The lilac-breasted roller is a beauty, too. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  2. Great shots all of them – I love the hornbill and the owl!

    • Hi Ann-Christine- Thank you! I think the hornbill (otherwise known as the “flying banana” in Africa) and the owl are winning the beauty contest for this post. Glad you like them!

  3. I have always had a thing for birds.. “God’s messengers.” Love all of these!

  4. What a serie of stunning photos you have here !
    My favourite are the Hornbill and the SC Falcon … And your blog is a favourite of mine!

  5. Beautiful birds! LOVE the two headed ostrich!

  6. Beautiful photos and that ostrich the angle was so well seen, it makes you do a double take… 🙂

  7. I know you included beautiful photos from Africa, but I love your birds from South Carolina. The owl is my favorite and the yellow warbler is lovely. We have yellow tanagers and yellow warblers here but I’ve never been able to photograph them. I’d probably have to sit in a spot long enough to catch one.

  8. Your birds are fantastic! I showed them to my FIL and he and I was so curious about the two-headed ostrich. Is it really a single bird with two heads or it is perspective that did that? I ask because there are 4 legs too. I hope you do not feel offended by my question. It is just that the bird is so out of the ordinary. 🙂

    • Hi Imelda,
      Thank you for asking… It is just a funny photo of two ostriches that happened to be walking closely together and it appears that there is one body with two heads. Not offended but pleased that you enjoyed it and were interested. Thanks!

  9. What a tremendous series Jane! That hornbill is particularly outstanding!
    A truly great job was done with all these!

  10. those are all, stand alone great shots!

  11. love these…..great eye!!

  12. Especially love the owl, but the migration shot is amazing.

  13. A wonderful collection of birds.

  14. Great shots, Jane. I like the owl very much!

  15. Look at those beaks….”to everything there is a purpose under heaven.”

  16. Some beautiful close up shots Jane!

  17. When it comes to staring match, the owl wins. Graat pictures.

Love to hear what you think...
