Two birds with one.... post?

Love this thread as I am a great fan of "ordinary" birds (even thought they are not remotely ordinary!). Some wonderful images here.

The reason for the oddball subject line on my post is that I am aiming for a twofer here: posting an ordinary bird picture plus trying out posting an image from my new Flickr account!

Excellent idea for a thread! Here's the common of the common. Ordinary of the ordinary. Invasive of the invasive... actually maybe that's reserved for European Starling. But anyway - House Sparrow!

Nice shot of that Varied Thrush, John! That is not an ordinary bird here in the Okanagan - it's once in several months before you see a Varied Thrush point blank! :D

Looking forward to the swallows returning!

Every now and again, an ordinary bird...in this case a Spotted Towhee shows up with extraordinary feathers!

I titled this one "Feathers painted by Monet"
