BIRDS ARE WONDERFUL . . . Y and Z !
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 the year of our Lord 2020, below follows the ninth (and last) 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 Y is illustrated by Yellow-headed Blackbird, Yucatan Jay, and Yellow-eyed Penguin. The letter Z illustrated by Zino’s Petrel, Zigzag Heron, and Zone-tailed Hawk. Since this series is not using the Norwegian alphabet, this is the end of this series!
“Y” BIRDS: Yellow-headed Blackbird, Yucatan Jay, and Yellow-eyed Penguin.
“Z” BIRDS: Zino’s Petrel, Zigzag Heron, and Zone-tailed Hawk.
Birds are truly wonderful — and some, like the , are exquisitely beautiful, while others, like the are fascinatingly unusual, if not also a bit weird! (That concludes this series; however, there are thousands of birds that could have been included, so this series only introduced the biodiversity of birds, D.v.)

Hope you enjoyed this quick tour through the alphabet, using birds of the world as our tour guides. Birds have fascinated me since 2nd grade (thanks to God and Mrs. Thelma Bumgardner), and that fascination has only multiplied since. Hallelujah!
