Avian And Attributes

“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:” (Romans 1:20 KJV)

“For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (His handiworks). So [men] are without excuse [altogether without any defense or justification], [Ps. 19: 1-4.]” (Romans 1:20 AMP)

Avian And Attributes is a new series for Lee’s Birdwatching Adventures. A good friend of mine, Rhonda Sawtelle, (Create a Positive Day), has been posting every day on her Facebook a different attribute of our Lord God. She has been going through them alphabetically. What if each day, we had a different attribute and a bird whose first or last name starts with that same letter. My challenge is to try to at least get through the alphabet at least once. Maybe several rounds.

Many of the definitions used for the Attributes of Our Lord God will come from Webster’s Dictionary of American English (1828), unless noted. The information on the featured Bird will be adopted from Wikipedia,  plus occasional other noted sources.]
