Readers’ wildlife photos

Since it’s Sunday, we have a batch of themed bird photos from John Avise. John’s commentary and IDs are indented, and you can enlarge the photos by clicking on them.

More Birds of a Feather Flocking TogetherTwo weeks ago I posted avian flocks with odd numbers of individuals, so this week it should not surprise you that a follow-up theme is various avian flocks with even numbers of birds.  The Snow Geese were photographed in Montana; all others in Southern California.4 Double-crested Cormorants, Phalacrocorax auritus:

  1. Once again thanks. I didn’t comment on the “odd” series so this is for both “odd and even.” The spacing of the 10 double crested cormorants struck me as well as of the crows on the dead wood but to pick them out for comment seems rude. Yeow! these are all photos over which to linger and for which I’m grateful.
