Lisa Coleman has very interesting blog OUR EYES ARE OPEN about birds and this week she is asking for birds with black feathers. I found some birds that answers to the theme.
This picture was taken in Central Idaho. You will find it in the western states.
Picture taken at Pahranagat NWR The birds stopped here on the refuge on their way north to their breeding areas.
This bird is found in North American and as large flocks they can be a nuisance. Attempts to move from one area to another have not been successful. The picture was taken in a farmers field, Washington state.
Another bird that will spent the winters. We saw large number off the North Marsh after a sonic boom. The birds used Pahranagat NWR during there migration.
