Four of our favorite Photos of the Week

8/14/2014 | 0

Not all of the birds selected as a Photo of the Week in May can be seen in North America. One occurs across much of the eastern United States. Another you can found only in the beautiful Southwest. And the remaining two can be viewed in the wild only after doing a bit of traveling. Here are all four once again, in case you missed them the first time around.
