Birds of Paradise Evolved

Collection of bird photos evolved in New Guinea. Their stunning colors and forms delight the viewer.

10000birds.com  Birder's Oktoberfest.  This site has beautiful pic of birds.  I put them on my RSS feeder.  Gives me something to look forward to.

birdingblogs.com has some great pics too.  Also on my RSS now.  Not as frequent postings as 10,000 birds.

birdzilla.com  more pics

Mainly wanted to post the birding oktoberfest.  My camera is not so good, doesn't take great bird pics.  The feeders have lots of birds, big and small.  I have suet cakes (need to make a recipe for those so I don't keep buying them), sunflower seeds, chikadee/finch mix, and a thistle feeder.  I hope that helps them survive the winter and attract beneficial birds to the yard.

It's a new type of bird! A giraffe that flies!
Yeah - hehe - must have been tired when I posted that - it's funny! At least I'm laughing!
: )

Yeah, I just thought maybe giraffes had learned to fly, or something! LOL!

Though, a flying giraffe would be way cool! Hahahaha. :)

I love the Secretary Bird photo!
Beautiful bird!
Thanks Tony!
I think I meant to put my giraffe pic in the Wildlife group - but oh well.
I'll have to get another picture for my Wildlife group.

Look at this handsome fellow. Secretary bird. Endemic to sub-Saharan Africa,. found in all areas. Is a raptor, can fly quite gracefully, but seems to prefer staying on the ground.
