A Family Affair. The second-largest North American woodpecker after the ivory-billed (which is so rare it is considered by many to be extinct), the Piliated Woodpecker (Dryocopus pileatus) is sometimes referred to as the "logcock." Because of the birds' large size (basically crowlike) the holes that they make can cripple the structural integrity of the trees from which they feed. These birds are not picky, and will dig into coniferous or deciduous trees alike, if they have an inkling that there are beetles (not The Beatles) to be had.
Hello everyone ! And we've landed safely in Bangkok ! Uneventful flight to KL but then from KL lots of delays and we got in closer to midnight. Just woke up so no Bangkok pics yet, but here's a pic of a volcano we flew past. I think we were in Indonesia. Anyone know this volcano ?

The last supper..... Autumnal weather upon us. The horse growing his winter coat, apples falling from the trees (well blown off in strong gales ), not being able to walk anywhere without a tin hat because of acorn attacks! Hedgerows being cut and swifts and swallows circling the skies stocking up on tasty bugs to fuel their epic journey south to Africa for the winter..... ripening blackberries and rose hips and fading flowers. Summer is but a distant memory yet again. How fast the seasons march on. How quickly the years pass.... Farewell mr Bumble

Check out this male Indigo Bunting - doesn't he look buff?! 😂 My city backyard rarely sees these birds (only occasionally in the spring), which is too bad because they seriously own a gorgeous set of feathers. Did you know the blue colors are a result of light refraction, not pigment? Have fabulous weekend! I'm off on a birding trip - bet you'll hear more about that! 👋🏻 💙 . . . #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #kings_birds #birds_adored #bird_brilliance #bb_of_ig #sassy_birds #pocket_birds #birds_captures #eye_spy_birds #ip_birds #BIRDS_iLLife #audubonsociety #nb_nature_brilliance #animal_captures #animal_sultans #rebelsunited_nature #nature_perfection #nature_of_our_world #planetbirds #thebirdingsquad #nature_worldwide_birds #birdfreaks #best_birds_of_world #naturyst #9vaga_birds9

Lovely tree, Christchurch Botanic Gardens, New Zealand Christchurch Botanic Gardens, located in the central city of Christchurch, were founded in 1863 when an English oak was planted to commemorate the solemnisation of the marriage of Prince Albert & Priness Alexandra of Denmark This lovely tree in its full Fall splendour provided us complete shade from the hot sun as well as many shots of it from various angles. It also feels cool to sit underneath it

I haven't seen a Baltimore Oriole in my yard or at the feeders in about 10 days now, so I am assuming they are gone until next spring. Godspeed and safe travels buddy...

I will still post images of you every once in a while so you know I haven't forgotten you! 🧡🖤 . . . #Your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #kings_birds #birds_adored #bird_brilliance #bb_of_ig #sassy_birds #pocket_birds #birds_captures #eye_spy_birds #ip_birds #BIRDS_iLLife #audubonsociety #nb_nature_brilliance #animal_captures #animal_sultans #rebelsunited_nature #nature_perfection #nature_of_our_world #planetbirds #thebirdingsquad #nature_worldwide_birds #birdfreaks #best_birds_of_world #naturyst #9vaga_birds9
Day 20: GROUND A park was dedicated to this lover of wildlife conservation and flying overlooking the Pacific in Bandon, OR. He went down flying in 2010 in a Cessna 182 near Philomath,OR. He was one of 16 pilot biologists in the federal USF&W on our continent! #rebelunitedsept2018 #rebelsunited_nature #rebels_united #orgeoncoast #bandon #davidpitkinmemorial

Swan Song. The Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) is not actually mute, but it is much more quiet than other swans. These magestic birds are not endemic to North America, but were imported from Europe in the 1800s and 1900s, when zoos and large estates brought them in for their beauty. Escapees have since populated areas of the pacific northwest and great lakes region, and they are today among the largest of waterfowl living on our...water. Their size comes with a large appetite, and these birds--which feast predominantly on vegetation--will devour upwards of 8 pounds of plants a day. Sometimes, when feeling particularly crafty (or lazy?), they will stretch their wings to catch the wind and sail across waterways to give their paddling legs a rest!
