Fabulous 'fotos'. Your feathered friends look very friendly.Not being an onithologist, I can't help with the names, but they look more like a Theodore and a Felicity than a Pat or Mike or Suzy to me...
You are so talented dear Tash, I guess to take a good picture of birds is so difficult!Well done!Léia :)
Sorry, I can't help you with naming the birds. Great shots! I am glad they stayed put for you to take their photos.
Looks more like a kestrel than a hawk to me. No clue for the friend, though...
I'll just stick to 'feathered friends'! Very nice, sharp photos.
The second bird resembles a grackle or a cowbird.
«Louis» to cambull:Hey! Watch who you are calling a 'cowbird'!;-)
Our FINE FEATHERED FRIENDS make FOR FABULOUS FOTOS!
No one can catch the boidies like Tash.
I thought the hawk had a bit of an Edgar about him. Unless it is a girl and then I'm a bit lost. Other than that I cannot help you. I usually stick to black bird, feathered bird etc. It works well enough for me...
It looks like either a Cooper's hawk or a Sharp-shinned hawk, but I can't tell from the picture. My first thought on the second one was brown headed cowbird. Both pictures are excellent Tash!
The second one reminds me of what we think of as grackles here. Although my mother has a less polite name for them...WV is Apollo. Weird...
Wow, great shot of the hawk!
I can't help you with identification, though the slim shiny fellow at the bottom reminds me of a young starling, but they certainly are fine. And no-one could argue that they aren't feathered!
Thanks so much for contributing, a lovely post! Is the bird a member of the blackbird/jay family?Denise (ABC Team)
Wow these are great! Thanks for stopping by today.
Oddly, and independently, I thought of Felicity for the lower pictured bird. Don't know why.
I wasn't expecting the that last line. Cut me up
I'm no good either but they are lovely. I can never get birds to sit and pose and turn just a certain way for me! :)V
I'm not sure about the first but cowbird is what came to mind with the second. You are a very gud boid watchur.
Fantastic and fabulous too.
Great photos! I'm no help at all. They are birds, for sure. That's all I know. :)
I'm so sorry I don't know their names, but indeed they are very beautiful!Love Is In The Air, Love Is In Nature
I'm pretty sure the "hawk" is a Northern Harrier. Fairly common around here.
