IT BEGINS WITH G AND IT’S A BIRD!

BIRD WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – BIRDS WITH “G” IN THE TITLE

Mother Goose had nothing on this week’s selection of “G-rated” birds!

After Geese, there are Goldfinch, the Gray Catbird, and the Grosbeak (Rose-Crested) — and of course, gulls of all kinds. I think that’s pretty much it.

And a Rose-Breasted Grosbeak
Gulls on the shore in Maine. This was taken with the first digital cameras I owned. It was an early Canons. It took good pictures that I keep because I can’t reproduce them. Times have changed. On this monitor, it was extremely grainy. It gave me a chance to try out Topaz’s “severe noise” filter. It worked wonders! Best filter I’ve ever had. It cleaned up 9-years of noise from an old 8 ppi photograph and made it smooth as silk!

  4. What a nice selection of “G” rated birds! Beautiful goose pics. Your Rose-breasted Grosbeak looks like he is up to no good and unsure about what to do about it. LOL! 🙂

  5. A single Canada Goose flew by my 6th floor, city apartment, honking. Odd but wonderful.
