This Red-tailed Hawk was resting next to a busy hiking trail, on a low tree branch, while a thunderstorm passed overhead. People just walked past him without noticing because of his beautiful camouflage. To stop and engage with him was such an amazing experience! There are many wonderful gifts to be thankful for everyday. Often we miss them because we’re looking down, dwelling in our negativity, or distracting ourselves. We have to remind ourselves to keep our heads up and look around to see all the gifts we’ve been given.

Who needs a head rest with a beak like that?? Apparently not only good for “skimming” the water’s surface for food. During early October many Black Skimmers can be found on the beaches of Cape May in New Jersey. This particular one caught my eye as it snoozed away during the mid-morning hours Bird on. -JJM #blackskimmer #bird #birds #birdsofinstagram #birdphotography #bestbirdshots #nikon #nikonphotography #nature #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #natgeo #audubon #natgeowild #natgeoyourshot #ig_nature #capemay #newjersey #birdwatching #jm_wildlifephotography
I’ve listened to this record everyday for the past week. I had no idea they were from Ireland. Sounds like early Black Keys, if that’s your thing.
Planning on taking a little break when I’m done making work for the holidays… I’ve got a whole list of books that I want to dive deeper into, including this lovely #audubon classic I received from @cuteshinythings years ago 💛🐧🐦🐤💚 In another life I would have been a naturalist and maybe in a way I still can be in this one. I think it’s incredibly important to document even our everyday environments, especially right now. #birds #whippoorwill #nighthawk #birdsofamerica #biologicalillustration #naturedrawings #naturalist #readinglist #oldbooks #futureplans
Lark Buntings declined by 93% between 1966 and 2014, according to the North American Breeding Bird Survey. But on @pronghornranchwy , an Audubon-certified #ConservationRanch , they breed in abundance.

Who doesn’t love our beaches? Our Bald Eagles sure do. With cooler weather coming, October is a great time to bird Hilton Head Island. Just remember to share the beach and give our feathered friends the space they need.

Ranchers are stewards of America’s grasslands. Their livelihoods depend on the health of their lands; as do birds. Together, we can conserve and enhance grassland bird habitat on millions of acres.

Detail of a piece for @gristleartgallery 's show The Killing Jar, opening this Saturday Oct 20th, 7-9pm. See you there! . . All the work in the show is about the study of natural history. This piece has a personal story behind it. When I was in college, I became very interested in the migratory birds that died from window and building strikes. The birds use stars to navigate at night, but our artificial lights confuse them. They often end up flying straight into a window or reflective glass building, and die from the impact to their brain and spine. I met with an ornithologist at @acadnatsci in Philadelphia, Dr. Nate Rice. As the collections manager, he is in charge of all the tissue samples from stuffed birds to frozen organs. He said that any window strike birds I found could be added to the collection. I just had to put them in a ziplock bag with info like where I found it and the date / time. I could store the birds in my freezer, and bring them to The Academy where Dr. Rice would dissect them, write down info discerned from their organs like what they last ate, stuff the skins, and freeze tissue samples. My name would be put on the tag tied to the bird's leg as the person who donated it to the collection, and all the information was put in a database. I ended up donating about 200 birds to the collection. One of the coolest things was when Dr. Rice showed me a Carolina Parakeet study skin in the collection, donated by Audubon himself from when he was a member of The Academy. Now the Carolina Parakeet is extinct, preserved in these specimens and in Audubon's artwork. I chose to depict a Carolina Parakeet in this piece, complete with a tag on its leg as it flies away from it's museum collection. . . #ornithology #artcollector #artcollection #gristleartgallery #contemporarydrawing #contemporaryrealism #contemporaryart #Brooklyn #nycartist #beautifulbizarre #hifructose #juxtapoz #carolinaparakeet #audubon #audubonmuralproject #ornithologyresearch #NYC #philadelphia #academyofnaturalsciences #extinctanimals
💙💙Who doesn't love a puffin?! @audubonsociety 's Dr. Steve Kress started Project Puffin in the early 1970s to restore Atlantic Puffins to historic nesting islands in the Gulf of Maine. After years of effort, today more than 1,000 puffin pairs nest on five Maine islands (Eastern Egg Rock, Matinicus Rock, Seal Island NWR, Large Duck Island, and Petit Manan Island NWR). 👏👏 You won't find Atlantic Puffins on land in autumn: other than nesting season puffins live at sea and are well adapted to this lifestyle. Go follow @audubonsociety for more incredible bird photography. Photo: Preeti Desai (@preetalina )/Audubon

This Broad-billed Motmot from March at @rara_avis_rainforest was quite the surprise, they look very similar to the much larger Rufous Motmot, the Broad-billed is smaller but has a chunkier body look, with a large head, you can see that here. Motmots are an interesting group of birds they breed in holes in the Side of banks, often why they have mud on their bills. This species has around 6 subspecies that are currently recognized, most likely it’ll get broken into species when someone dives in, just like the Blue-Crowned Motmot was a few years ago.
#75ReasonsWeLoveAudubon Reason 68: Providing lasting results for scientific research that has benefitted bird conservation. In the early 1970s, ornithologists discovered that Audubon Greenwich's high elevation and scenic view made it an incredible observatory to hawk migration. The Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch was established to not only provide people with an opportunity to view their migration but also compile data on how many raptors are seen each year. Every day from late August to late November both professional and volunteer hawk counters submit numbers of how many hawks are seen each day to the @hawkmigration Assiociation of North America. Nearly 40 years of data have been compiled from our hawk watch site giving scientists a greater understanding of trends in raptor populations. Species such as the Bald Eagle and Peregrine Falcon have made tremendous comebacks since the ban of DDT but species such as American Kestrels and Northern Harriers have declined to due loss of habitat. Thanks to our many devoted hawk watch volunteers and professional counters over the years, Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch continues to provide the important data that researchers need to ensure the survival of these birds. . . . . . #AudubonGreenwich75 #HawkWatching #Raptors #Birding #Nature #Conservation #Audubon #AudubonGreenwich #AudubonConnecticut #QuakerRidgeHawkWatch #Greenwich #Connecticut
