Some Birds From A Recent Trip

Tufted Titmouse – Cameron, OK MAR 2017

On a recent road trip, we got to see a number of interesting birds that we don’t get to see here in California. We also got to see some of the usual suspects.

Here are some interesting tidbits:

  1. The typical vulture we see in the US is the Turkey Vulture. While the black vulture has a gray head, the turkey vulture  has a red head. The black vulture is found in southeastern US.
  2. The blue jay is found in the eastern half of the US. In the west, we have the scrub jay. The stellar jay and the gray jay are found in areas of the west with cooler temperatures.

Here are images of some of those birds. I hope you enjoy them.

Regards,

Larry
