Mystery Critter Wednesday Round 3

I decide to make Roung three super easy. Or at least it seems so to me!



I am waiting for Joan of South Africa photographs to offically roll out her meme for this great game. In the mean time be sure and check her Mystery Monday out. Her critters are really cool but be careful as she is quite tricky! By that I mean that her mysterys are real mysterys and are not always critters. If I do have to say so myself I am the current record holder at her site. That's right, I have the most near misses without actually winning!

Thanks for playing,

Craig

LOL!! That Joan sound like a real meanie Craig. I wonder that you ever bother to look at the things on her site. I wouldn't if I were you. LOL!!

Now I know EXACTLY what this is.You thought you could fool me but I am too clever by half!! It is the eye of an elephant!! I would recognize those feathers anywhere!! :)

When I get home I will send you an e-mail about the meme. :)

I'd say squab, Rock Dove, A.K.A. Pigeon.

Lanny Kallen and Steve: Isn't it funny how birders see birds in everything!

Joan: Isn't it funny how African Safari guides see elaphants in everthing, including trees!

I guess we will see tomorrow...
Thanks for playing,
Craig

Not just any Pigeon. This is your very rare Rock Pigeon, or occasionally called the Rock Dove.

The adult of the nominate subspecies of the Rock Pigeon is 32–37 cm (12–14½ in) long with a 64–72 cm (25–28 in) wingspan. It has a dark bluish-gray head, neck, and chest with glossy yellowish, greenish, and reddish-purple iridescence along its neck and wing feathers. The iris is orange, red or golden with a paler inner ring, and the bare skin round the eye is bluish-grey. The bill is grey-black with a conspicuous off-white cere, and the feet are purplish-red.

Scot: This is what happens when you teach your little brother how to do research on the internet. That is a very interesting "guess" scooter. I am impressed with your copy/paste skills! "Iridescence", not that's a big word for us southern boys! lol

I'm telling mama. "Craig's Not Playing with ME! He's being Mean!"

Craig Glenn said...

LOL, Ok scooter, you know you can't prove it, mama will never find her way to my blog, she still can't figure out how to check her email.

Craig: Thank for your recent comment on my blog. Since I am new to blogging I was not able to figure out how to answer but Ken Conger came to the rescue. Hope this was the right place to respond. Joan really have great talent.
