The Burrowing Owl looks very serious. The Monk Parakeet is very pretty in its green coat. Great capture of the birds in flight. And the Snowy Egret is looking great in its yellow slippers with the black stockings! Thank you, Eileen for hosting and have a beautiful weekend!

How cool that you see birds that I see only in a zoo or Aviary, namely the Burrowing Owl.

That may well be the most handsome owl I've ever seen. What a deep thinker.

Hi Eileen. What a lovely expression on that owl's face. You really captured it well. I am so jealous of all those Avocets - we just have 6 at the mement - European Avocets of course.

Mary Hone said...

Love the owl. He's a handsome one.

Cloudia said...

great captures, E!

Florence said...

The snowy Egret looks like he just stepped out of a puddle of bright yellow paint. I've only seen burrowing owls when we lived in West Texas in Midland where there was a whole colony of them on the Midland Community College campus. Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Debbie said...

The owl seems a bit suspicious of you!

Sorry Eileen, i don't have birds. But that is not because i don't like them but because i don't have the lens for them, haha! Anyway, i have the butterflies! Thanks you.

Cranberry Morning said...

That burrowing owl is a beautiful creature! I'm hoping that life will slow down a bit and that I remember to link up to Saturday's Critters this week. I always love it, but sometimes don't get there. :-(( I hope you're having a good Memorial Day weekend, Eileen.

Sue (this n that) said...

Hello Eileen, I love all your creatures shots. The owl is magnificent, we hardly see any over here. The Snowy Egret's yellow feet are so cute.
(I've just 'followed' you, can't believe I didn't do that after all these years - silly me).
Cheers and have a really great week :D)

jandi said...

oh these are wonderful! wishing you a great week!

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Eileen; I wish I can see Owl, as we think they are lucky bird. We call them "fukuro". Fuku" has the same sound with "luck" in Japanese(^_^)v Fantastic shot of Burrowing Owl♪ I smiled with the "yellow slippers" and also enjoyed seeing the different one from my regular one.
Thank you so much for hosting and so sorry for my long absence.
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*
