Winged Ones

There are so many things that fascinate me about being outdoors, most importantly is being one with nature, being able to absorb the energy and life that surrounds us all. Wildlife traditionally refers to undomesticated animal species, but has come to include all plants, fungi, and other organisms that grow or live wild in an area without being introduced by humans.  There are over 10,000 living species of birds, in this gallery a small sample of birds from all over the world.  My daughter, when she was young feared me becoming a birder, whilst I do not know the scientific names of the birds, I am able to indentify and recognize many birds by their calls.
