I went to the park in the early morning for a much needed walk. All of a sudden this big beautiful bird appeared and landed in front of me. It was awesome; it was so close. I stood there smiling and just admiring it. It looked right at me and didn't even get bothered at all by having its picture taken. Good morning to you too lovely birdie. ;)
Reid Park in Tucson, AZ
What a wonderful and special moment and such a good picture of the bird. He is beautiful! Thank you for sharing!
What a way to get your exercise!
Beautiful bird - nice photo -
I am always glad to see beautiful creatures.
Thank you for taking the time to let us have this pleasure also.
Nice bird. Wonder what it is. If you hadn't mentioned Arizona, I would have assumed it to be a shore bird.
It does look like one doesn't it ? :) I wonder too. Have not been able to find out. Hmmm.
According to Anne, I was right. It is a shore bird. But, looking at some distribution maps tells me that according to the seasons, it can be found about anywhere in the Americas.
They are sluggish in daytime and don't really become active til near nightfall. Guess that's why he sat so quietly for you to photograph him.
Great information likekinds ! :) You definitely know your birds. ;) I had searched and searched but could not find any information. That's very interesting and educational to finally know where it's from and it's habits. Appreciate it, thanks !
