Birds & More Birds

Wow!  My girlfriend came over the other day with a "late" birthday gift! It was this huge hardback book on birds! Just look at this gorgeous cover!

I haven't really looked at each and every page yet but I did go through it a bit to see what it had to offer.. here is a page with "moorhens" (Coots) that are different from the ones at the pond.

below: close up of a "giant Coot"

I found a page with the beautiful Egret on it and some Terns like I had seen at the beach one time..

The Egret is prettier in person.

look at the Terns!!  The ones we had seen were just black and white but just has pretty!

The book will take some time to see it all..until then I will go thru it now and then and find more gorgeous birds..many I wish were in this state but many are not even of this continent!!

Love that cover! One of the best bird moments I've ever had was seeing one of those beautiful creatures in flight!

The book looks amazing! What a perfect gift.
