Birds of Shawnee Lookout

There are many wonderful and interesting birds here in Ohio.  We met two types of unique birds while out on a hike in Shawnee Lookout park.  I’ll be posting more about the park in a later article but for now, let’s focus on these wonderful creatures.  We ran into a couple of nuthatches who were busy singing their song while foraging down the trees.  Their big bodies, small skinny legs and gripping feet make them an interesting bird to watch.  We also saw three vulture sisters named Flossie, Glossy and Mossy.  They were out for a nice lunch of fish.  Shawnee Lookout is a great place to view waterfowl and I look forward to visiting again in the Spring.

  1. Hej hej Sethsnap! Love your pix and comments. Thanks for also stopping by my blog..I have often tried to take photos of birds. It is very difficult, they just keep moving! Have a great day.

  2. Nice shots. I saw a nuthatch when I was out for a walk on Monday. Out of the corner of my eye I just saw something move up in a tree, then he shimmied about a bit and was away. I usually see treecreapers but rarely nuthatches.

    • We have several types here. 🙂 Funny, before I started taking pictures I had no clue about birds. Now, I have to put my research hat on but I’ve learned quite a few things.

  3. Cute little blue bird … never seen that before – we have a blue bird over here, but he has a yellow chest. Great gallery as always. Claudette from Hazard. – my pick.

  4. I find taking photographs of birds so difficult – I just get set up and they are gone! I bow down before you!!!!!! Those are lovely shots. Especially the vultures in flight. We have lots of turkey vultures where I live and I think they are magnificent birds!

  5. What phenomenal shots these are! You capture the personality of these birds even. Maybe part of that is your great captions, but I really enjoyed these today! Thanks for your perspective on the world!

  6. Little birdie on the bark tree
    Has a coat thats blue and flurry
    swings its tail and sings a melody
    far away from vultures near the waves
    they have a deadly taste,
    sisters are not really friendly
    birdies knows about them lately 😉

  7. Nice shots! I can barely find a nuthatch in my binoculars, let alone get one picture, and you’ve got dozens! Well done. I love nuthatches. Well, I actually love all birds. Even turkey vultures.

  8. This post must be one of my favorites on your blog, what camera do you use? But anyway I figured I’d stop by and let you know that I referred to your page in a One Lovely Blog award post and let you know that I do admire your website and photography!

  9. White breasted Nuthatch huh? We have the red breasted Nuthatch over here in Wa state. Ours doesn’t seem to be that red though. 🙂 Great pix.

  10. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my skimmer. I often get inspiration from photos on-line, so don’t be surprised if you see a familiar-looking bird come up on my site. 🙂 Gorgeous photos!
