Wild Bird Wednesday 200 - A few Highlights

Greetings, in July of 2012 I posted the first Wild Bird Wednesday link up (following about 90 World Bird Wednesdays over at Pine River Review) - at that point I would have laughed if you said I would still be doing it 200 weeks later!

Well, I am, and for a good number of you, so are you!

As is the way with my life, things are busy and my planned 'birthday' celebration has been reduced to a 'highlights' reel from the last 100 WBWs.  So, here there are:

Arctic Tern, Farne Islands, UK

Brown Noddy, Lord Howe Island, Australia
Crested Shrike Tit, Phillip Island, Australia

Gang Gang Cockatoo, Halls Gap, Australia

Black Headed Gulls, Seahouse, UK

Jackdaw, Bempton Cliffs, UK

Laughing Kookaburra, Halls Gap, Australia 
Masked Lapwing, Churchill Island, Australia
Puffin, Farne Islands, UK
Tree Sparrows, Bempton Cliffs, UK
Hope some of your favourite shots are here.  The WBW community is stable about about 45 to 50 bloggers each week, but there is always room for more.  So, as a special 200th birthday activity, why not share the link for WBW through any social media that your use - Facebook, Twitter and such like!

Now - for the 200th time, it's your turn.  Click the blue button and off you go.

Happy Anniversary and thanks (times 200 and even more) for all you do!!! Love the highlight pictures -- and you didn't need to apologize for lack of time, this seems like a perfect way to celebrate. (Makes me envious all over again however. Think I've only seen one of these birds in person. Maybe two.)

Wow, that is quite an accomplishment of 200 WWW posts. I join in when I can and love visiting many of the folks that link up and seeing different birds from around the world.

Congratulations Stewart fo 200 WBW's. I love this meme and would never miss entering and miss looking at all the other bloggers entries. I love ALL these shots you are chosen to show us again although I do have a soft apot for the Puffins. They are so comical characters. Anyhow VERY MANY THANKS for hosting this wonderful meme for the past 200 weeks and may it still be going for another 200 weeks. Have a wonderful week ahead.

That Crested Shrike Tit is amazing.

Andrea Priebe said...

All of your pictures are favorites, but I have to say, I like the Grumpy Old Man look of the Brown Noddy ... seems like he would make a good mascot for somebody :) Can't begin to say thank you enough for all that you put into your WBW blog (and others). We are the beneficiaries of all of your hard work and it's been a a ride ... hope it keeps going for many years to come. Wishing you a safe trip to SCOTLAND (as opposed to Ireland) and hope the Scottish birds aren't
stingy with their picture taking opportunities. Thanks again, Stewart ... I have loved all 200 weeks of it :)
