The 12 Birding Days of Christmas

Categories: Birds and Christmas.


The camera is always on hand to capture the feathered lens friends in the garden, down by the bay or driving along.  Christmas carols are being played everywhere now and just to shake things up a little bit I’m sharing some of favourite photos of birds with my rendition of the 12 birding days of Christmas.  Singing along or humming along is allowed.

On the first day of birding my camera snapped for me … a cardinal in a bare tree

and then continuing on …

On the second day of birding my camera snapped for me 2 swans a swimming

3 robins in the nest

4 ducklings feeding

5 gold finches

6 cormorants perching

7 geese all lined up

8 sparrows eating

9 doves a resting

10 geese a flying

11 ducks a sitting

On the twelfth day of birding my camera snapped for me … 12 turkeys gobbling.

The 12 days of Christmas actually starts on December 25 and runs through till January 5.  These photos are from my files and were taken at different times in the garden and down by the by bay.  A bit of creative editing was used in a couple of the photos.

 I’m sharing with  I’d Rather B Birdin’ and Saturday’s Critters.
