The other tiny bird I watched yesterday was a blue-gray gnatcatcher. I've never seen one of these either. Very exciting hike! #rnrwanderings #txstateparks #lakemineralwells
I got several shots of black-capped chickadees yesterday at Lake Mineral Wells State Park. #rnrwanderings
Well, this is a bird I had to look up. It's a Black-crested Titmouse. I didn't get a great photo, but I was excited to see a bird I've never seen before. #rnrwanderings #txstateparks #lakemineralwells
Blue-eared kingfisher donning some really pretty royal blue feathers 💙 Been trying to look for this little one in the past week with @bun_don and after many hours of disappointment, I finally saw one today!! ☺️ Thankful to @yapclarinda for the detailed info, as well as some of the birders at kranji marshes who helped to find this little one 😊
🎼🌿🌲🍃~ sing to me ~ when you sing to me I close my eyes so I may hear the sound of your sweet lullaby. And I won't be tempted to look around at other sights & other sounds. It's only you I want to hear & only you I want to have near. I know you are whispering to me when you sing your song ' I've returned, once more, to the one whom I belong' Even the flowers feel my love for you, my tears of dew have watered them, that's how they grew ❤️🙏🏻. While walking through the woods, I came across an old oak tree filled with birds happily singing. There was a gentle breeze & I am sure their song was a grateful 'thank you' to her after days of heat ☀️A song of gratitude to the branches of an old, wise, girl 🌲#singtome #nature #naturelover #treelove #birdlove #etsy #vintagesparrowstudioshop #birdsandblooms #watercolourandink #amongstthetrees

I have to remind myself that some birds aren\\\'t meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. - Morgan Freeman Love Birds?

My first sighting of these wonderful sawbilled #goosanders . I spotted about 50 from my kayak accross the reservoir. It was so cute to see these juveniles following in line behind the matriarch, as if they were still hatchlings. #goosander #merganser

A male American Kestrel sits on a a fence post just after the sun has set in northern Utah. American Kestrels are in the falcon family. They are the smallest falcon in the U.S. They are commonly found in farmland and open fields but can be found in urban environments as well. They are quite beneficial to man due to their diet that consists primarily of small rodents and insects. However, they will take an occasional small bird. -•••- : : : : : #birds_private #sassy_birds #planetbirds #nature_worldwide_birds #ip_birds #birdsandblooms #FIFTYSHADES_OF_NATURE #nb_nature_brilliance #bird #birds #falcon #elite_raptors #feather #nature #flight #birdwatching #birdphotography #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #birds_adored #bestbirdshots #bird_brilliance #pocket_birds #birds_nature #eye_spy_birds #animalelite #birds_perfection
Uma das aves mais ameaçadas das Américas e uma das mais raras do mundo, inclusive sendo considerada extinta entre 1940 e 1950. Atualmente, a população mundial dessa espécie é estimada em menos de 250 indivíduos / ICMBio. Um privilégio poder ainda ver e fotografar essa ave em seu ambiente, ao pôr do sol, nas águas cristalinas do rio São Francisco. Com o amigo Alexandre Vidal e Mariana Vabo a quem agradeço o excelente e incansável trabalho na região. 🇧🇷️ PATO-MERGULHÃO 🇬🇧️ BRAZILIAN MERGANSER 🖋️Mergus octosetaceus 📌Parque Nacional da Serra da Canastra l MG l Brasil l 2018 #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_ig #kings -birds #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #bns_birds #feather_perfection #birds_adored #thebirdingsquad #birdsandblooms #birds_illife #sassy_birds #birds_captures #ip_birds #total_birds #nature #nature_perfection #exclusive_wildlife #fifyshades_of_nature #bestnatureshots #wildlife_perfection #show_us_nature #ig_brazil_birds #birdyourworld #backyard_dreams #raw_birds #birds_perfection #terradagente
Dowitcher and the Worm ~ I had a few first with this photo. I had never seen let alone photographed a Short-billed Dowitcher pulling a worm so that was a great first. The best part about that was I didn't even know I had it until I reviewed the photos at home. These guys pull worms so fast I just got lucky on a burst. The next first in this photo was that I'd never seen one with such clean and fresh plumage. This bird stood out from the dozens of dowitchers I saw that day. When it flew in, it immediately caught my attention. The bird was overall lighter then the rest and each feather was so nicely marked and not worn. That is one of the great things about fall shorebird photography, many of the birds have such fresh plumage since they are young and their feathers aren't worn yet. The lighting on this afternoon was hit or miss. The sun was in and out from some puffy white clouds moving through the area, thankfully I caught this shot right when a cloud covered the sun. If you look closely you can see the cloudy blue sky reflected in the bird's eye. Taken at one of my favorite shorebird locations at Island Beach State Park along the central New Jersey coast. ~ 8/14/18 ~ ¹⁄₁₆₀₀ sec at f/4.0 on Manual ~ ISO 200 ~ at 500 mm using a 500 mm f/4 on a NIKON D4S #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #bb_of_ig #kings_birds #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #bns_birds #feather_perfection #birds_adored #pocket_birds #planetbirds #thebirdingsquad #birdsandblooms #birds_illife #sassy_birds #birds_captures #nature_worldwide_birds #ip_birds #total_birds #nature_brilliance #nature_perfection #nature_sultan #exclusive_wildlife #nature_hippys_ #fifyshades_of_nature #shortbilleddowitcher #shorebirds #njwildlife #njbirds
That wing span though... 🙌🏽
Say's Phoebe. A common flycatcher of the West. The rust-colored belly is the best fieldmark. The Say's Phoebe breeds farther north than any other flycatcher, seemingly limited only by the lack of nest sites. It breeds north past tree line, and may be following the Alaska pipeline even farther north, nesting on the pipeline itself. Taken along the San Juan River Walk in Pagosa Springs, CO. Our beautiful world, pass it on. #waycoolshots #bestbirdshots #wildlifephotography #bestnatureshots #nature_shooters #naturesbestpics #naturesultans #wildlifeaddicts #splendidanimals #wildlife #audubonsociety #natureaddicts #instantnaturefriends #audubon #wildlifephotography #bestnatureshots #nature_shooters #canon_photos #naturesbestpics #naturesultans #wildlifeaddicts #splendidanimals #wildlife #audubonsociety #birdsofinstagram #oklahomaphotographers #thephotoargus #nature_perfection #cornelllabofornithology #birdsandblooms #naturephotography #birding #birdsofinstagram #birding_photography #birdsofafeather #pagosaspringscolorado #colorado_photographers #naturephotography

I’m going to be away for the next few days but before my brief leave of absence, here are some shots of a very rare sighting in Singapore: the fabulously eccentric barred eagle-owl. This professorial bird is generally assumed to be a non-breeding visitor from Malaysia but there is recent evidence to suggest that there may be a few breeding pairs resident in Singapore. In the last fortnight, we’ve been fortunate to see a pair of adults and possibly a juvenile as well. The first two photos here are of the female; the third photo, taken in near darkness, is of the male. The female has a dark border around her facial disc, and a lightly mottled breast. The male, by contrast, shows no dark edging around the face but has more clearly defined bars on the breast and belly. Both sexes have quite spectacular eyebrows. 😜 For a clearer photo of the male, have a look at the superb capture by @derrickw0ng in his most recent post. ... ... ... ... ... #sgbirds #singaporebirds #elite_owls #ethicalowlphoto

Feeling a little melancholy. Sooo much over-clearing and over-grazing and too many road kills. Worse than that, the number of kangaroos left on the road after being hit. I counted FIVE dead Wedge-tailed eagles on side of road going across Nullarbor , no doubt hit by cars whilst feeding on a roo carcass left in or near road. You need to take carcass well off roadside as eagles have difficulty taking off with a full crop and sometimes fly across road. . Please do NOT travel at dawn and dusk (or night) if you can avoid on Australian country roads. Is it really worth getting there a day earlier if I means you’ll probably hit and kill an animal? . . Also, please stop and check firstly animal has died (it may need to be put out of its misery), then see if female and has baby in pouch. . . We have stopped for dozens of dead roos even with a campertrailer in tow. Hubby has the job of taking them off road (take gloves). Yesterday we actually found a baby red kangaroo (boy and furless) in pouch still alive at 4pm. The mother had been killed probably in the morning and had even been eaten. Joeys can survive up to 48 hours so don’t ever assume it’s too late by afternoon. Check. I brought pouches and native animal milk with me and he survived the night and was feeding well and this morning we gave him to two beautiful local wildlife carers. They told us some locals shoot roos and leave babies in pouches to die. One man shoots wombats and they have crawled back and died in burrows !!! There is never an excuse to leave an animal to suffer. I can’t understand anyone who can leave any animal to die in pain. . . This is a Bar-shouldered Dove taken in Darwin two years ago. I cropped after downsizing so not sure how well he’ll look but in the original photo he is absolutely sharp with gorgeous colour and detail. Sorry to be so depressing- some days it’s hard to get your head around just how cruel humans can be. . . . . . . . . #best_birds_planet #birdsillife #best_birds_of_world #nuts_about_birds #birds_perfection #birds_captures #ip_birds #feather_perfection #total_birds #birdsandblooms #pocket_birds #nature_worldwide_birds #perfect_birds #earthcapture #ausgeo
Little Friarbird, another first for me🤗 This one was quite happy to to have a few shots taken.

A juvenile male yellow-bellied sapsucker sits for a photo in one of our northwest poplars. These are the birds that peck the close patterns of holes in tree trunks. The holes in the bark cause sap to flow, insects are attracted to the sap, and the woodpecker returns to feast on the insects. The trouble is, the holes can cause a tree to fail to the point of killing it. I write from personal experience, but I harbour no hard feelings towards them.

Mallard Drakes(Males) are so unusual looking this time of year. Most of them are in what’s called “eclipse” plumage. Most ducks shed their body feathers twice each year. Nearly all drakes lose their bright plumage after mating and for a few weeks resemble females. This is called eclipse plumage and when their primary feathers are molting, they are unable to fly and become reclusive. The return to breeding coloration varies by species and individuals of each species. One way to tell this is a male is the mostly uniformed yellow colored bill.
Even though I missed an Osprey catch a fish this morning because my feet were too slow, I am very happy with this Black-crowned Night Heron that flew by just as I was about to drive away! 😁
