Blogging from A to Z, happy things. Y for yellow, yearn and yes! w
I yearn to get more exercise. Sort of. I’m not making it enough of a priority. I did walk to work about a week ago and lots of trees were topped with birds. First a yellow shafted Northern Flicker. Am I sure it’s yellow shafted and not red shafted? Well, no. I would need a brighter day to see it’s tail that well.
Corvus, the crow. Here. Next a robin:
And who is this? Very upright and about the size of the crow:
The branches made it a tricky focus shot and I zoomed all the way in. There! Yes!
I think this is a juvenile Swainson’s hawk, here. It could be a Cooper’s hawk but doesn’t have a long tail. Correct me, birders, if I am wrong!
Yes, yearn and yellow…. yea for the letter Y.
