This post is from Leedra from Leedra's photo's. YOu can find her link at the bottom of my blog in the blog roll. Thanks for the comment Leedra and the visit.

I can no longer leave the comments on your blog. For some reason I am now blocked from commented on any blog that has the embedded type of comments. Have you considered changing to the half page pop up for your comments?

The first photo has 2 different type of birds, and I do think the one furthest away from you is a Killdeer. They are considered a shorebird, but I have never seen one in Florida. We have them here, in our backyards, where there is no water.

These are indeed Ruddy Turnstones, the lighter one is a juvenile .. I posted some in full breeding plumage on my blog recently.
Happy Birding Craig!

Now when I read the heading and knowing you, I was wondering whether you meant the feathered or un-feathered variety. LOL!! Just teasing as usual Criag. :)

Lovely shots!! They are almost invisible against their backgrounds.

Beautiful birds! Wish I could see these!!

P.S. Thank you for your kind comments on my birding blog re: my dove post. I had someone who complained to the Michigan Audubon Society about that post (and of which I'm a member) and they contacted me. It was devastating that I upset some members so greatly and they couldn't see past the emotion for my love of birds.

I have never seen these birds, but now I know what they look like if ever the opportunity arises. thanks! Are they Ruddy Turnstones? Never even heard of them.

Isn't if fun to learn new birds, Craig? And even better to have all these experts around that know their names! Ruddy Turnstones are cool - kind of look like a killdeer (which is the closest thing we have here in Pennsylvania)!

Craig: It's too bad you didn't get an answer yet. Why they a Shore Birds, you always see them along the sea shore.
BTW: Joan has a neat one and you better listen to me this week.

Hi Craig, I'm not sure what the birds are---but it looks like your readers have given you some good answers. I love finding new birds---so I'm sure you are thrilled to get a new one or more..

Hope you all had a great weekend. Check out my blog sometime and see the Baby Bluebird pictures.

Craig: Well, you didn't listen to me and won the contest. That was a tricky way to get the right answer.
