BIRDS ARE WONDERFUL . . . V, W, and X !
Dr. James J. S. Johnson
Jesus said: “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink . . . Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, . . . your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” (Matthew 6:25-26)
For ushering in this year of our Lord 2020, below follows the eighth installment of alphabet-illustrating birds of the world, as part of this new series (“Birds Are Wonderful — and Some Are a Little Weird“*). The letter V is illustrated by Vasa Parrot, Vireos, and Vultures. The letter W illustrated by Wood Duck, Waxwings, and Whinchat. The letter X illustrated by Xavier’s Greenbul, Xingus Scale-backed Antbird, and Xantus’s Hummingbird.
“V” BIRDS: Vasa Parrot, Vireos, and Vultures.
“W” BIRDS: Wood Duck, Waxwings, and Whinchat.
“X” BIRDS: Xavier’s Greenbul, Xingus Scale-backed Antbird, and Xantus’s Hummingbird.
Birds are truly wonderful — some are gracefully beautiful, like Xantus’s Hummingbird, — and some, like the Vultures, are fascinatingly unusual, if not also a little weird! (Stay tuned for more, D.v.)
