World Bird Wednesday/From The Archives


Today's post is a selection of some of the birds that are not from my backyard but taken in nature reserves and while on a picnic. Our backyard birds come in three basic colours: black, white, and grey!!:) This Golden Oriole was taken at a resort in the outskirts of our city. I have posted some of these photos before but that was all before I  joined Springman's meme. The photos also say...don't you think it's time you changed to a better camera? Hmm...I'm listening...I'm listening!



This Crimson Sunbird was spotted on a drumstick tree last year. We were out on a picnic near a river and was I glad I saw this!

The Indian Roller was photographed in Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary on one of our day trips there.



A winter scene...pigeons peck at some of the remaining grains in a rice field. After the harvest these are how the fields look in this season.


And a flock of pelicans that I photographed at the local zoo.

I love your dragonfly header, is this the same one you have had for the last few days? I can't remember. A good variety of birds. Why are they called Indian Rollers!

I'd love to see a Golden Oriole.

I rather like that Indian Roller. I wonder if the 'Roller' has something to do with his song at all?

I can't decide which I like the most:)
Happy New Year to you!

Love your archives. It's funny, I have a camera that says the same thing to me!! (But if I get a new camera I won't have anything to blame for my poor pictures!) You chose some good pictures though -- it's not obvious that you need a better camera at all.

I love the Crimson sunbird. Awesome sighting! Now about that new camera. Sounds like your ready for the challenge of the Dslr!
Happy New Year!

Lovely bird photos! I have been fascinated by the Indian Roller since I first heard of that species.
