A few more lousy shots of birds in Forest Park

June 19, 2009

I got what I thought was another Black-Crowned Night Heron, but no…it was the YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT HERON .

If that’s a yellow crown the bird has, I’m the Queen of England, see you all in Windsor Castle…

And then, in their usual fashion, this MALE KESTREL and HOUSE FINCH (and another bird that not even Dave Pierce can id) showed me nothing but bundles of feathers:

I ask you…is this any way to pose for an eager birder who’s come halfway around the world?
