Weekly Puzzler #129:Another Long-Necked Bird

So since we’ve been talking about birds, and especially, large, soaring birds that use thermals. Let’s look at one more. This bird reaches amazing heights as it migrates high above the earth. Here are two pictures, first a flock in silhouette, and then one with the sunlight on them.


puzz-8523Can you identify this bird? If you want to guess, use the comment box below and then check back next weekend to see if your guess was correct.

All correct responses will be entered in the next week’s free giveaway! THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO QUALIFY! No harm in having a wrong guess. I will pick a winner on September 22, the first day of autumn. Will YOUR name be the one pulled?

Good luck. And see you again soon.

      Wow! I am surprised to see your guess here! Pleasantly surprised that is. Thanks for writing and for reading!! But sorry, they are not Canada Geese. You are, however, not the only one who thought so, so good try. I hope to see your comments again in the future!! Hugs!!

      Good guess, you are not the only one who thought this. But it is not correct. Oh well, no harm in trying!! Hope to hear from you again soon.
