Well, I don't know what they are, but they are gorgeous.

And also I'm jealous of your sunny weather, as it has been grey and rainy here in England.

#3 looks like a type of sparrow, but I'm not sure which one. #4 is a curve-billed thrasher.

Enjoy discovering all the birds in your new neighborhood!

#1 is an American Kestrel and #5 looks a bit like a shrike, though I'm not sure.

#8 is an Inca Dove and I'll have to hit the books for the others. Wonderful inspiration for you!

I agree #1 is a Kestral. #2 could possibly be an Oriel. #6 looks like a Purple Finch. What a fun game and a great day bird watching for you!

Hola, Geninne:

¡Qué variedad de pájaros y qué colores más llamativos tienen! Eres muy afortunada por poder verlos tan de cerca.

Ah, y me encanta lo bien que quedan los pájaros que has dibujado en la foto de la anterior entrada. Además, es cierto que los colores recuerdan al cuadro de Van Gogh en Arles. Ha quedado precioso.

Muchísimas gracias por compartir tantas cosas lindas con todo el mundo.

¡Feliz jueves!

Helena,

Geninne, I have #4 (Curved Bill Thrashers) that live in my back yard in Tucson AZ. If you want to keep them around, just throw out some unsalted peanuts for them They are crazy about them. They are really fun to watch, getting the shells open with their beaks. I love your birds and your blog.

I come here often to see all the wonderful things you share. I came to read the comments to see what kind of birds these lovelies are and had to leave a comment because the word verification is PRENESTS and it was too much of a sign not to pay attention to! I love, love your beautiful art and charming words.
