I went home sick today and am praying it’s not the flu 😷 🤞🏼 Can someone bring me some chicky-noodle soup & ice cream plz. 🍦 • • • • • Here’s a little pair of semipalmated sandpipers (named for the slight webbing between their toes) searching for their next meal together.

While Belted Kingfishers migrate as far as South America during the winter, some will stay in Northern latitudes as long as they can access unfrozen, open water. Kingfishers can be spotted throughout the year in Oregon on the coast and near rivers, lakes, and other bodies of water. 📷: @tweetsandchirps ⠀ ⠀ #beltedkingfisher #kingfisher #portlandaudubon #yearofthebird #birdstagram #birder #oregonbirds #bestbirds #birdyourworld #oregoncoast #pacificnorthwest #exploregon

The Anhinga or “Snakebird” does not have external nostrils and breathes through his epiglottis. Only his neck shows above the water when swimming. #birdwatcher #birdstagram #birdextreme #birdwatching #birdyourworld #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_ig #global4nature #naturyst #feather_perfection #best_birds_of_ig #birdcaptures #birdcapture #birdife #anhinga #wildlifephotography #naturephotography
Hiking through Shubie Park today I heard a rattle-like call and rushed over to see this female belted kingfisher perched above a stream, keeping an eye out for any unwary fish below. . . #VisitNovaScotia #ExploreCanada #Birds #nsbirdsociety #birdwatching #kingfisher #beltedkingfisher #photography #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #canon #shotoncanon #canonphotography #sharecangeo #discoverwildlife #earthcapture #birdsofinstagram #birdyourworld
Adorable Tufted Titmouse in Icard, NC 📷 by @roamingfreewildlife Tufted Titmice typically hang out in pairs outside breeding season, unlike other chickadees who tend to gather into larger flocks. Oftentimes, one of their young from the year will remain with them, and will even help its parents raise the next year’s brood. In the summer, Tufted Titmice eat mostly insects. They also eat seeds, nuts and berries. Experiments with Tufted Titmice have revealed that they will always choose the largest seeds they can carry when foraging. These charismatic little birds are frequent visitors to backyard feeders. • • • • #birds #birding #wildlife #yearofthebird #birdyourworld #ncbirds #ncbirding #ncwildlife #birdphotography #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #tuftedtitmouse #birdfreaks #birdfacts #backyardbirds

Have you ever seen a Snowy Owl before? These birds spend most of their lives up on the Canadian tundra, but every few years an “irruption” occurs and some come down to our neck of the woods for a few months. They’ve been spotted all over the Detroit area, so keep your eyes peeled! Photo by Bruce Szczechowski.
"I'll drink of the clear stream, And hear the Linnet's song; And there I'll lie and dream The day along" -- William Blake I did my undergraduate senior thesis on William Blake's "Songs of Innocence and Experience" which I believe, to this day, is one of the greatest literary works of all time. But never did I imagine that my love of birds and his poetry would intersect on Instagram of all places. That is, not until I actually saw and photographed my first Common Linnet, then all bets were off! #commonlinnet #cardueliscannabina #kneu #williamblake #linnet _________________________________ Kerkemeertje Graft, Netherlands April 2017
In Costa Rica you even do #birding in the middle of the road! And cops stop by to see the gorgeous birds. This Brazilian guide was visiting with Canadian tourists. It’s partly a shame, as Costa Rica has tremendously good guides. Yet he was an awesome person. Come see the birds!! #birdyourworld #birdsofinstagram
This detail shot from @tinyhousebigwoods makes me happy today! Plus, as I was driving in to work this morning in twilight, a Barred owl flew across the road ahead of me--great omen for the day. #laurelmundyillustration #owls #birdsinart #birdyourworld #urbanbirds

After a weekend birding I feel like I know this bird a lot better. There were Yellow-rumped Warblers in two varieties throughout the trees all along our journey. In my yard a Yellow-rumped Warbler only shows up occasionally. On the Refuge I started my list with a Yellow-rumped Warbler. I could hear it first, chipping to another then I saw it. What was different about this Warbler was it had a yellow throat as well as the yellow on it’s butt and flank. This means it was a Yellow-rumped Warbler (Audubon). We saw almost an even split of YR Audubon vs Yellow-rumped Warblers. We also got to see two flying together in circles in front of us. They were most likely exhibiting breeding behavior. A third broke up the behavior so we didn’t get video. Birds move so fast, you see something, then it stops in instants. I have so much I want to share from the weekend. We saw over 60 species across the two days between Sacaramento NWR, Delevan NWR, and Colusa NWR. I added 6 birds to my life list and we were able to add 1 bird to @karennhogan ’s life list which, is a challenge now that her life list is over 400 birds. I think my bird a day drawing will have to extend into the next couple of months. I will add posts of the other things I work on too, like #kidlitart . New Year new routines, still building them to attain the best process I can.  #yearofthebird  #birdyourworld  #birding  #caseygirard  #dailydrawing  #dailybird  #sketches  #illustration  #natureart  #audubonsociety  #cornellornithology  #natgeo  #bird #ornithology #newyearsresolution #process #routine
Most tern species breed along coasts. The River Tern is one of the few terns that doesn't, they breed on sandy islands alongside freshwater rivers and lakes (Ashish Malhotra)⠀ ⠀ #birding #birdphotography #wildbird #feather_perfection #birdlife_insta #birdwatching #birdlovers #birdoftheday #wildlife_shots #bird_brilliance #exclusive_wildlife #birdsofinstagram #nature #wildlife #2018 #YearoftheBird #BirdYourWorld #tern #river
One of my favorite winter bird visitors to my yard is the very small & very camouflaged Brown Creeper. I’m not certain why they call it the Brown Creeper bc it moves with great alacrity & is difficult to get a photo of. I’ve had one or two hanging out in the trees in my yard the past few winters but had not seen any this year till just a couple weeks ago when this one showed up. #Browncreeper #birdsofinstagram #audubonmissouri #audubonsocietyofmissouri #como #missouribirds #optoutside #naturephotography #birdyourworld #birdphotography #camobird #ilovebirds #canonphotography
Ostriches split the egg-sitting duties: Males (like this one) incubate the nest--of up to 25 eggs--at night, while females sit during the day. (As with all my #yearofthebird daily posts, for each like/share, I’ll make donations to conservation charities.) #BirdYourWorld . . . . . #animallovers #animalpolis #animalsofinstagram #igscwildlife #animales #exclusive_animals #wildlifephoto #birdsofinstagram #animalsmood #kings_birds #birdwatching #bestbirdshots #birdstagram #animalsaddict #birding #instabirds #afrika #igs_africa #afrique #super_africa #ig_africa #panasonic #lumix #panasoniclumix #gh4 #focalmarked
