Photo Challenge Shore Birds

I love participating in the photo challenges whenever I can. This one is about shore birds. Thank you Lisa for the challenge. Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Shorebirds by Lisa Coleman

You wouldn’t think Colorado would have a lot of shore birds, since we are known for the Rocky Mountains, and not the coastal shores. But we do. As many of you have seen through my Nature Walks series, we live on lakes, and we have a lot of shore birds that call our Colorado lakes home. Here are some of our resident shore birds. Most of them are seasonal, but some reside here year round.

We have our blue herons.

Lots and lots of mallards,

Redheads,

Cinnamon teals,

Hooded mergansers,

Buffleheads

and our ring-necked ducks.

We have American white pelicans,

Snowy egrets,

Double crested cormorants,

And of course we have our geese. We have both cacklings,

And tons and tons of Canadian geese.

So even though I do not live close to a beach any more, I still live by the water’s edge, and we have our fair share of shore birds too.
