The Eastern Wahoo Bird

I was recently inspired by Teresa Robeson at One Good Thing, who spoke about the Eastern Wahoo for National Arbor Day.  The name of this plant, also known as a Burning Bush – just sounded like one of my imaginary birds to me!

So here is my imaginary bird, the Eastern Wahoo:


I discovered on Wikipedia that the fruit of this specie has also been called, “Hearts Burning with Love,” therefore I added a few hearts to my female bird.

After learning from Teresa that some species of this plant is invasive, I decided to include a Western Wahoo – a bad boy bird of the west:


I hope my two weird birds gave you a smile today!  🙂

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!
