Belted Kingfisher, September 22, 2021

Wild Bird Wednesday and My Corner of the World

Click on the photos to see them at their best.

male Belted Kingfisher, Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, September 16, 2021
When I first saw this Belted Kingfisher, Megaceryle alycon, he had his back to me.

But he was very cooperative and flew over to another wire to give me a front view!

Over much of the United States, Belted Kingfishers are all year residents. In Canada and Mexico they are migratory birds. Fish are their primary source of food; look for them around ponds, lakes, and rivers.

Have a wonderful day!

Saturday's Critters and I'd Rather B Birdin'

Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, September 12, 2021
Sometimes you can find Great Blue Herons, Ardea herodias, wading in shallow water looking for fish. But don't forget to look up in the trees, too!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Sky Watch Friday and The Weekend in Black and White

The Tennessee River near Shiloh, Tennessee, USA, September 12, 2021
A pretty place for a picnic! We began the week with nice sunny days, but we are ending it with rain.

I think the huge rocks on the river bank are more interesting in black and white.

Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, September 2021

The northeast corner of Mississippi, USA zone 7b

The colors for my September's Bloom Day seem to be white and all shades of red! Where are my blue, orange, and yellow flowers? Resting? Laying dormant? Goofing off, most likely!

Hibiscus syriacus, Rose of Sharon 'Red Heart'

Another Rose of Sharon, name unknown

Encore Azalea 'Autumn Royalty'

Butterfly Bush, Buddleia

Turk's Cap

Rose 'Iceberg'

Peace Lily

Cypress Vine

Phlox

Now for the 'Pretty, but Not a Bloom' category
My Beautyberry is producing the berries that give it its name. Clusters of tiny blooms open in July, and then each flower makes a berry (food for birds). To see Beautyberry blooms visit My July Bloom Day post

For a look at things to come...
My red Spider Lilies will be blooming by this time next week!

Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!
