Color vs Geography

We get so much enjoyment watching birds from our motorhome. Yesterday morning an unusual sighting of a Lazuli Bunting at our feeder caused us to start a list for the birds we would see during the day just from the motor home; Purple Finch, Black-capped Chickadee, Orange-crowned Warbler, Violet-green Swallow. Jeanette noticed, “Hey they are all colors”. In the afternoon they switched to geographical names; American Crow, American Kestrel, California Quail, European Starling, Northern Harrier. And then there were two that tied by combining both; Western Bluebird, and American Goldfinch which is the pair featured in the photo.


  1. Are you putting a feeder out while you are in the rig?

  2. MM - Yes we do. Either a window mounted plexiglass tray, or (
    in this photo) ODFW supplied hanging feeders near our site.
