Wild Bird Wednesday

It's been a bit since I've participated,
due to a recent trip to Anaheim, CA I have lots of wonderful birds to share!

These 2 Double Crested Cormorants got lots of attention from me. They were in Disneyland Park in the area where the Pirate Ship is. Since I don't do many rides and my traveling companions did I spent lots of time watching these amazing birds!

Juvenile Double Crested Cormorant.

We discovered a lovely little park, Yorba Regional Park, lots of lakes and lots of birds!
Black Phoebe

My first Western Bluebird!

Egyption Goose, I saw 3

Beautiful Tree Swallow

Tree Swallow at the nest
 There were many Tree Swallow all over this park but this pair appears to have been nesting or close to it. Would have loved to see babies popping their little heads out!

Below are some of my sightings at
 Oak Canyon Nature Center.

A lovely pair of Wood Duck in a tree, my first!

Male Anna's Hummingbird

Female Anna's Hummingbird
I have more to share but I'll wait for next time!!




  1. Lovely series Kristi.

    The 'European' Goose is an Egyptian and we have plenty around us here in the UK.

    1. You are correct, thank you Frank! I've made the correction.

  2. Oh, you saw a terrific variety of birds! Lovely photos.

  3. just wonderful bunch! love that black phoebe!

  4. Fascinating photos and details.

  5. Now this is what I'd being doing at Disney land as well. Most of that stuff bores me.....but not your birds:) Wonderful shots.....I love the pic of the Tree Swallow feeding the babies.

  6. Wow! That's a lot of gorgeous birds! Great shots.

  7. a lovely 'mixed bag' of beautiful birds...I rather like the hummer; would LOVE to see one

  8. Great birds - I would also be paying far more attention to the birds than the rides at Disneyland!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  9. A lovely set of photos Kristi. Disney doesn't do anything for me either, just the grandkids.

  10. An incredible variety of birds. The colouring of the Egyptian goose is stunning.
