Killdeer And I Don't Know




~Very Pretty But I Don't Know Species~
I am very new to bird watching. Please, I need help with identification of this bird. At first, I thought he was a Mockingbird. However, I have scoured over tons of images of Mockingbirds, and can't find any, either on the internet, or, in my own files that resemble this bird. 
~Happy Week To All!~

  1. Wow, your Killdeer is a cutie and I think your unknown is a cool Shrike? Awesome sightings!

  2. Great shot of the killdeer! The third one is a loggerhead shrike. Congrats!

  3. I'm not very good at identifying birds either. You'll get the hang of it I'm sure. You might find you a bird book and that would help.

    Great shots as always and birds are hard to photograph.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. ☺

  11. So. FL has tons of Killdeer. Not familiar with the Shrike though. He is interesting.

    Big hugs, honey...

  12. Those are cool bird photos. I didn't know what the second one was either until I read the other comments. Thanks for sharing :)

  13. That's a loggerhead shrike [the gray and white one that is masked]

    AND...I do hope you both will take it easy when you get a chance. Things in life are much more important. And rest is assuredly needed when you are going to have a new puppy, new fencing, and a husband to take care of after surgery. Don't forget to breathe!!! Cowboy will understand that you two need to be with him too.

  14. Very nice pictures! I was going to say a shrike, but others already have, so I don't need to.
