A bird that’s so common that it’s almost not “special” to see anymore. I want to share “common” birds with other people, and show everyone that some birds that are normal to others, might be rare or beautiful to people in another part of the world who don’t get to see them! So no matter where you are in the world, go ahead and add a picture of a common bird in your area! And add it’s name as well, if you know it. 😀
I’ll start! I’m in Ohio, and we have tons of American robins here.
north carolina, and northern mockingbirds! they are everywhere, particularly where people are; parking lots, business centers, etc. they’re annoying to people because they’re loud and aggressive to other birds. but i love their minimalist markings and their amazing mimicry abilities! (plus, with a little bribery, they can easily become friends)
I’m from Stockholm, Sweden, or towards the outskirts, and we got a lot of Common/Eurasian blackbirds!
Fun fact, last year when it was really warm and dry we always had a blackbird come over whenever we were watering the garden, because he wanted a cooling shower and to grab some worms
But I’m also studying in Uppsala atm (commuting between the two cities) and there is an overabundance of rooks there, which was exciting for me since they are rare down here in Stockholm!
I don’t how common these darling angels are else where but I love them.
Mourning doves are a common sight outside where I live. Their coos are very distinct.
I’m in central California and you can’t walk outside without having a California scrub jay yell at you.
They have fuzzy gray heads when they’re fledglings
im from southeast florida and boat-tailed grackles are everywhere you look!
apparently the ones we have here have dark eyes but in other places they have light eyes?
SO HARD TO NOT POST HUNDREDS OF BIRBS
Here are my favorites. I see these either in or from my yard east of Austin, Texas
Painted Bunting (this is a male, the females are green)
Black Vulture ❤️
Crested Caracara. Large falcon, looks more like a hawk, but is a scavenger and feeds like a vulture.
Scissor-tailed Flycatcher. Obnoxious and loud. I love them. When they fly you can see their forked tails.
