A breeding male Palm Warbler was quite a treat for me today, actually several males were singing on territory and this was a completely new experience for me. Due to their northern range, which is almost entirely in Canada, they are one of the earliest migrants in the spring. I often miss them on their way north only to catch up with them in the fall when their plumage has changed to a much faded version of their spring splendor. I very much enjoyed listening to their trilling song, as they jockeyed for position on stunted spruce trees in a breathtakingly beautiful bog. I will most definitely be visiting them again. ===================== Palm Warbler (Setophaga palmarum) .

This was taken back in April during our first trip to @johnheinznwr. We went with my “goal” of seeing the Wood Ducks that were seen there. I was sad that I couldn’t get any closer, because I was super happy to finally see one in person! #Lifers

A Spotted Sandpiper. The name may not make a lot of sense from this image of him, where are the spots! They only show up when in breeding. It’s almost like looking for a different bird between the seasons. Thankfully these birds have similar behaviors no matter the season. This Sandpiper does a butt bob as it walks. It’s tail wags up and down as it walks along the water’s edge. These birds are also usually alone. . They can be mistaken for a Least Sandpiper as they both have yellow legs but, the Spotted Sandpiper has the bicolored bill as well, orange and black tipped, of course only when an adult. Then, the section of their eye, the supercilium, is also starkly white, giving them what looks like a white eyebrow. . This is a shorebird you can spot along a river, lake, or marsh. They are widespread across North America, north of about the Mason-Dixon line during summer, and south during winter. . #The100DayProject #100dayproject  #yearofthebird  #birdyourworld  #birding  #wip  #caseygirard  #dailydrawing  #dailybird  #illustration  #natureart  #audubon #ebird #bird #ornithology #drawing #artistoninstagram #procreate #shorebird #spottedsandpiper
It’s not just bees; birds are important pollinators too. 🐝🐥 Did you know that hummingbirds synchronize their migration and nesting times with the flowering of nectar-bearing plants? #PollinatorWeek .

While on a trail last week I noticed a flurry of activity nearby, a pair of these Plain-brown #Woodcreepers were #fluttering about. It was dark where they were and the background was backlit. But they were so close and intent on ignoring me, so I had to make an attempt. Closer inspection revealed that they were attending a swarm of army ants, not preying on any #ants but on creatures flushed by the ants. Interesting #behaviour for sure. #birdman #birdsofig #birding #birdwatching #birders #Trinidad #birdnerd #birdyourworld #yearofthebird #Woodcreeper #plainbrownwoodcreeper #antswarm #armyants #backlit #birdbehavior #birdbehaviour #outofthebox #unconventional

When a Swallow-tailed Kite hunts in gloomy weather at eye level, exposing the image correctly is let's say, interesting. It involves ignoring your exposure meter for sure hahaha Also, is this image full colour or monochrome? #birdman #birdsofig #birding #birdwatching #birders #Trinidad #birdnerd #birdsoftrinidadandtobago #swallowtailedkite #kitesofinstagram #raptorsofinstagram #birdyourworld #yearofthebird #mountaintops #gloomyday #rainydays #cloudy
It's a hard life being a wandering albatross chick. They spend the entire winter on the island of South Georgia whilst their parents are both out foraging thousands of km for food. #yearofthebird #natgeoexpeditions #birdyourworld #lindbladexpeditions #albatross #southgeorgia #nature #wildlife #snow #bird_brilliance #bird_lovers
Ketika berbicara mengenai indikator perubahan lingkungan, tidak semua satwa memiliki peranan yang sama baiknya sebagai indikator. Salah satu kriteria utama bagi satwa yang dapat digunakan sebagai indikator perubahan lingkungan adalah sensitivitas yang tinggi terhadap perubahan lingkungan. Satwa yang terlampau tangguh dan tidak terpengaruh terhadap perubahan lingkungan akan memberikan sedkit informasi mengenai apa yang terjadi pada lingkungan di sekitarnya. Selain itu, untuk menjadi indikator perubahan lingkungan yang baik satwa yang menjadi indikator haruslah satwa yang mudah ditemui. Satwa yang terlalu langka akan sulit untuk ditemui dan diambil datanya. Sehingga, cukup sulit juga untuk mengambil kesimpulan mengenai perubahan lingkungan yang terjadi di sekitar satwa tersebut. Melihat dua kriteria tersebut, kita dapat menarik kesimpulan bahwa burung merupakan salah satu satwa yang dapat menjadi indikator perubahan lingkungan yang baik. Dengan melihat perubahan pada kebiasaan burung disekitar kita, kita dapat mengamati perubahan yang terjadi pada lingkungan di sekitar kita. #YearOfTheBird #BirdYourWorld ____ Raja-udang meninting - Blue-eared Kingfisher (Alcedo meninting) Status: Least Concern (LC) Foto oleh Asep Ayat / Burung Indonesia

Oh dear, I am so many many days behind. There is much birding and it is happening every morning at 6:00am! Then World Cup, then family time. The struggle for drawing time is real. I am sorry for my delay, I hope you all can hold tight for more pieces. I’m not stopping just behind. . Here is my Least Sandpiper. I went back to some of the old brushes I used to get a less photographic quality. I think I like this balance better. I still love the gouache brushes for dark tones. . Least Sandpipers are the tiniest shorebirds you see quickly walking along the waters edge or resting there too. They stand out with their yellow legs. . #The100DayProject #100dayproject  #yearofthebird  #birdyourworld  #birding  #wip  #caseygirard  #dailydrawing  #dailybird  #illustration  #natureart  #audubon #ebird #bird #ornithology #drawing #artistoninstagram #procreate #shorebird #leastsandpiper
Incredible #FridayFact : The model for John James Audubon's Snowy Egret measured just over 22 inches in length—but weighed a mere 12 ounces! ❄️🕊 ... In Audubon's time, this beautiful bird was hunted for its edible flesh, considered a delicacy. Only later in the century did its breeding plumes (or aigrettes) become the ultimate fashion accessory, used on items like this wedding crown. (👉 Swipe to see.) 👑 To obtain aigrettes—which were sold in immense quantities at astronomical prices—hunters slaughtered the sociable birds during breeding season, leaving unattended eggs and abandoned young. Only strict conservation measures have restored the Snowy Egret to its former wetlands habitat. 👉 See these items on view in our exhibition #FightforFeathers , open through July 15. And learn more about the Snowy Egret today from our friends over at @usfws ! #FashionFriday ... 📸 Snowy Egret (Egretta thula), Study for Havell pl. 242, 1832. Watercolor, gouache, and graphite with scraping and selective glazing on paper, laid on card. Purchased for N-YHS by public subscription from Mrs. John J. Audubon, 1863.17.242. [with George Lehman]. ... 📸 J. H. Johnston & Co. (1844–ca. 1910). Aigrette hair ornament (from a Snowy or Great Egret), 1894. New York City.

Regrann from @shenandoahnps - In the space between ( #NitaBlue ) #blue and #violet lies the deep, rich hue known as Indigo - spectacularly represented in nature via the vibrant Indigo Bunting. During breeding season, the males are an unmistakable site (and sound) throughout #Shenandoah , particularly at the many overlooks along Skyline Drive. Keep your eyes open for a flash of electric blue...er...Indigo. Spotting this lovely bird is always a thrill! 🐦 #featheredfriendsfriday #yearofthebird #indigo #birdyourworld #indigobunting #shenandoahnps #ShenandoahSunshine

Almost impossible to see in this pic but I PROMISE there is a just-hatched baby killdeer standing to the right of mom. 1 hatched, 3 more to go! Happy Summer Solstice, everyone! #naturalistlife #birdyourworld
Immediately after setting up a temporary box for the baby mallard, I got a call about 7 baby wood ducks in a fast food parking lot. We searched high and low for mom, but no luck. My boss, two police officers, and I chased down the babies with butterfly nets and I started making phone calls. An amazing local rehab apprentice had just set up 4 wood ducklings with a young domestic duck serving as a very protective big sister! Now they are one big duck party all cuddled together <3 Yay for happy endings! #naturalistlife #birdyourworld
This dazed little mallard duckling was found in the road in front of a grocery store. I got him set up with a mirror friend, fluffy friend, and a hot water bottle while I hunted down a foster mom #naturalistlife #birdyourworld
