Look Ma, No Wings!

I found this pair of birds today ( House Finches? ) as one was showing off, speeding through the air without the use of its wings. Of course that was just for the split second I froze the moment with my camera 🙂

    1. Lol, thanks! Well, I used it as a turn of phrase that people might recognize, with “wings” instead of “hands” and you are correct that the bird on the rail is a male and the one in flight is a female. They are probably a matched pair and the one on the rail isn’t likely its father.


  1. Nice. It gives the illusion the bird being catapult through the air. The expressions of the bird looking down at the road travelled and the other a surprised onlooker, priceless.
