World Bird Wednesday XLII- Just a normal week

This was just a normal old week in Northern VA. No hurricanes, no earthquakes, nothing at all. With the end of summer approaching, I thought I would post some of the normal birds that I see nearly everyday here.

Sometimes, normal is good. 

Green Heron

Large flock of sparrows

Ring-billed Gull

American Goldfinch


  1. Hi there - I think normal is good - I think it gets a wee bit pointless if all we look for are rarities!

    Sparrows - got to love them!

    Stewart M - Australia

  2. Good series!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  3. Awesome, normal can be good! Especially that pretty Green Heron!!

  4. Lovely birds and your Goldfinch is a real beauty.

  5. I think you need the big hug! I'm wishing you and your neighbors much strength in dealing with mother natures one two punch. It's like your getting picked on, poor souls.
    The Green heron photo is beautiful, we're really seeing the green in those feathers this time of year! Viva normal!

  6. Beautiful birds. I especially like the green heron, so georgeous!
