Ten Beautiful Birds Meme

We were asked by Pam of Tortoise Trail, Endment, and Suzanne of As Time Goes By to do the Ten Beautiful Birds meme. We thought about it and tweaked the meme just a bit to name ten beautiful birds we have photographed. Eight of the following photos were taken in our yard. The bald eagle, which flies over our yard regularly, was photographed in a tree along Port Townsend Bay. The Western Tanager photo I had to download because I could not find the photo we had taken.
American Goldfinch Carduelis tristis
Bald Eagle Haliaeetus leucocephalus
California Quail Callipepla californica
Cedar Waxwing Bombycilla cedrorum
Cooper's Hawk Accipiter cooperii
Mourning Dove Zenaida macroura
Northern Flicker Colaptes auratus
Red Crossbill Loxia curvirostra
Varied Thrush Ixoreus naevius
Western Tanager Piranga ludoviciana
Please click on any one of these photos to see how beautiful backyard birds can be. We don't usually do memes, but this one appealed to us and tugged at our hearts. We love beautiful birds. We invite Wayne at Niches, Bev at Burning Silo, and Floridacracker at Pure Florida to name their ten beautiful birds. If they've already been asked or if they, like us, think memes are crazy, then we just ask fellow bloggers who love birds to blog their ten beautiful birds.
