Where?

This is my contribution to One Word Sunday: Where?

On reading the prompt I thought of some of the bird species that search for food as they’re flying.

CFFC: Sense of Sight

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Sense of Seeing.

I started thinking about some of the species that use their sense of sight to eat. That got me thinking about some of the bird species that can see and catch fish. Here are two very different birds carrying very different fish they had caught in Lake Huron.

A Caspian Tern with a small fish in its bill flies along the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada. I’m guessing the fish is for the birds mate or young as it hadn’t swallowed it.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: White

My contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: White.

Now I will admit that my first thought was snow but after a winter that dragged on for what seemed like 6 months I didn’t want to think about snow.

So I decided to go with a selection of photos of bird species that are mostly white, the first two have white in their common English name.
