Readers’ wildlife photos

Today’s photos came from reader Liz Strahle, who dedicates them to our late friend (see below). Her notes are indented:

Here are some wildlife pictures I took in the last few months. Most of them are birds. There is one dragonfly picture. Most were taken in the spring of this year and a few in the summer. These were all taken in New Jersey.

Most were taken before Grania died, but if I can, I’d like to dedicate these to Grania.

Mute Swan (Cygnus olor)

Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus)

Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis)

Black Vulture (Coragyps atratus)

Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias)

Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata)

Red-winged Blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus)

Red-winged Blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus)

    I’ve never seen a black vulture close up like this. Turkey vultures are much more common and approachable. Thanks for the many fine shots today.

    I like to see the beauty of birds that are so common, they’re taken for granted. Loved the robin with the beak-full of earthworms. Nice dedication as well.

      I love that one, too. Many of these birds are new to me. The photography captures detail that I would have never notice otherwise. I’m learning new things all of the time even with the few birds I already knew. …and thank you.
