Colorful birds from Orlando, Florida

© Copyright 2008 Tink *~*~*

Probably what makes my Monday Meme Trifecta so much fun is that I never know until the Friday before what sort of prompt Mo is going to serve up for Manic Monday. It’s fun and easy to come up with something for Blue Monday and for Mellow Yellow Monday, but to make it fit with the “Mo factor”, well that takes some strategic maneuvering! 😉

Mo has prompted us with “birds” this week, so without further ado, I bring you two specimens – you guessed it, one blue and one yellow – from Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.


I found this little guy in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. In the spring of 2004, I was walking the paths in the Pangani Forest and some splashing to the left startled me. There he was, splish-spalsh, takin’ a bath 🙂 I think I’ve blogged this photo before, or one close to it, but no matter – he’s a cute little guy, and I’m happy to have him on the front page again.


Fast forward to October of 2004. The sun was going down, and it was a bit overcast, too. I was walking that promenade between the fountain and the World Showcase Plaza at EPCOT, and stopped to check out the turtle action in the lagoon. After watching them a while, I looked up and saw an egret hanging out with some moorhens, and then a little further off, this beautiful little blue heron. He stood still just long enough for me to get this one shot, and then he took off into the gathering dusk.

There’s more where that came from – check out My Bird Stuff Store *~*~* for some Disney-related bird stuff!

  1. The little yellow bird is such a pretty bird. I love the blue bird. I have never seen a blue heron. That is beautiful. I can’t get over how blue it is. I have seen white ones and grey ones. Wow, so pretty.

  2. What BEAUTIFUL pictures. Both birds are so colorful but that little yellow one just captures me!!! Have a fabulous Monday!

  3. Oh Tink – What beautiful, beautiful pictures! The little yellow one on the pail is an awesome pic and the blue heron is stunning!

    Great pics!

  4. Wow, that blue is beautiful on the egret and the yellow bird is so cute stopping by for a drink.

  5. Hello Tink, You did a great job with all the events together. Good job.
    I think the yellow bird looks so cute all fluffed up with his bath. Since we lived in Kissimmee and in So. Florida most of my life, I am very familiar with those lovely Herons. A great couple of photos.


  6. What beautiful birds! How bright and beautiful they are. Thank you for sharing and enjoy your Blue Monday.


  7. the entire yellow bird scene is great, I love the bucket of water
    the blue bird is an incredible shade!!
    you are a multi-tasking maven 🙂

  8. Wonderful post …
    I always admire the way you multi-task. My favorite today is the cute little yellow guy taking a bath ;–)
    Hugs and blessings

  9. Both specimens are simply wonderful and look like they would belong in a Disney film. The yellow one is my favourite as the whole picture is so very endearing. The heron though has the most amazing colour. Both captures are great.

  10. Tink, I just love those birds! Amazing colors on both! Isn’t Disney fun? And I love the fact that they have everything from fantasy to beautiful reality… like those birds.

    Happy Blue Monday…

  12. Tink, I LOVE the little yellow bird all fluffed up! I’ve never seen a little Blue heron….so BLUE! Just Beautiful!

  13. What colorful birds, but the photographer is even better! 😉 Wonderful shots, I esp love the little yellow guy on the edge of the bucket.

  15. I really like those birds, very colorful. The yellow one is so cute sitting on the bucket for a drink. 🙂

  16. I love them both..they’re beautiful, but tiny little yellow bird and his bucket of water is just so sweet. Happy belated Blue Monday and have a lovely week.

  17. Birds are a special favorite of mine and the blue egret is gorgeous. We have lots of white ones around here but none blue.
