Bird collection




Contrary to expectations I didn’t see many birds. The only bird photo I managed was of these Apostle Birds. I don’t know anything about them. It is a mystery to me why the three of them sitting together in the middle of the road, not in the least bit interested in moving or disturbed by my presence.

  2. How interesting. They may have been babies waiting for a parent to feed them. Great shot.cosal

  3. What a fab photo! I believe Apostle birds are so named because they hang around in groups of up to a dozen or so (but you probably already knew that!!). As to why they were sitting together in the middle of the road, was it a cold day?

  4. Red, I didn't know that was why they are called Apostle Birds. It wasn't particularly cold weather.
