I am linking up with Wild Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes
I am sure it would not take much to guess that the Bird House at the Smithsonian Zoo was one of my favorite sights to see at the zoo.
Somewhere in the world, these birds seen below are considered wild birds and can be seen while out birding.. I see a few are on my list of most want to see. It may take some traveling to see them and some may take winning the lottery to go around the world, HAHA. I am listing these birds below and where they can be seen.
In the top row first two photos on the left are the White-faced Whistling Duck. This duck can be seen the Caribbean and Central and South America. The third from left top row is the Southern Masked Weaver seen in Southern Africa. My friend Jo @ Memorable Meanders might have seen this bird. Last photo in the top row is the Red-fan Parrot can be found in the Amazon River region of South America. Now that would be a cool place to go birding..
Second row from the top is the Red-billed Hornbill, I would love to see any species of Hornbills..This one is found in the Sub-Saharan Africa, the next bird is the Guira Cuckoo, this bird can be seen in South America mostly Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay and northern Argentina. The next bird is the cool looking Micronesian Kingfisher, it can be found in Palau and Guam. The last bird in the second row is the Crested Oropendola and can be seen in Costa Rica, Panama and South America. I have seen the my Montezuma Oropendola a very cool bird also seen in Costa Rica
In the third row from the left is the Mountain Bamboo Partridge, this bird can be found in Laos, China, India, Thailand and Vietnam. Second from left is the pretty Blue Crowned Motmot can be found in Mexico and Central America..The third is a lovely colored Asian Fairy Bluebird and can be found in Asia, India and Sri Lanka. The last bird in the row is the Golden Bellied Grosbeak, this bird can be found in Columbia, Peru, Ecuador, Trinidad and Venezuela.
my Blue-gray Tanager, I have seen this bird in Costa Rica and Panama. The last bird is the Sunbittern, can be seen from Mexico to Peru..The Sunbittern is another on my list of most want to see. I was very happy with the Smithsonian's Zoo's Bird House.
Maybe you will see a familiar bird or one bird you really want to see. Do you have a wish list of MOST want to see birds? I have three birds listed above on my want to see list they are the Blue-Crowned Motmot, Scarlet Macaw, Sunbittern and I would love another trip to Hawaii to see the Red-Crested Cardinal..
