Purple heron in Shollinganalur marshlands . . The purple heron (Ardea purpurea) is a wide-ranging species of wading bird in the heron family, Ardeidae. The scientific name comes from Latin ardea "heron", and purpureus, "coloured purple". It is similar in appearance to the more common grey heron but is slightly smaller, more slender and has darker plumage. It is also a more evasive bird, favouring densely vegetated habitats near water, particularly reed beds. The IUCN notes that the global population trend is downwards, largely because of the drainage of wetlands, but assesses the purple heron's conservation status as being of "least concern".
What's your connection with urban nature? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want to voice my appreciation for this man. What I hear most often about the Canada goose is that they are generally annoying, particularly when they poop on the beach. Am I wrong? Honestly, I think we have lot to reflect on about how these attitudes affect our own connection with nature and how that in turn affects us. I applaud this man because he inspired me to stop just a little while longer and watch all the baby chicks making their cute little coos and observe the various head bobs of the parents and what they might all mean. And best of all, this man got to be up close and interact with the birds making a soulful connection. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don't currently have any pets of my own, but having this lagoon right outside my home has saved me from isolation. All the ducks and geese, the beavers, and the plants in the changing seasons keep me entertained and feeling connected to the earth and it's organisms, while still living downtown in the city. I can't thank Vancouver enough for this beautiful opportunity and I want to give this gift of connection to nature to everyone, countryside or urban centre. It is so important that we make sure our local municipal ordinances or bylaws, city council, neighbourhood concept plans, official community plans, etc. are established to protect this living connection for us. Get involved in your local community. Go to council or town hall meetings. Find organizations that are supporting these causes and let them know you support them. If we don't speak up to protect our natural environment, it will gladly be taken for other uses and profit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #vancouver #stanleypark #lostlagoon #iheartnature #protectourparks #urbanwildlife #naturephotography #naturelovers #connectwithnature #environmentaljustice #environmentallyfriendly #saveourplanet

How in the world does the Mountain View Cemetery keep such prime real estate? Thank goodness they do. Along with East Bay Regional Parks, they are keeping some tranquility alive in the chaos. #urbanwildlife #turkeynotjustforthanksgiving #whyfearthedead
Nothing to see here. Pay no attention to the raccoon behind the tree. #urbanwildlife #TOfauna
First beautiful spring day in Bellevue; 70°, longer daylight... and a family of deer taking a constitutional through the city. Captured this one pausing in a neighbor’s yard. #urbanwildlife
We’re looking at you! Have you booked your trip to Kenya yet? We’d love to take you on a safari and show you the best this country has to offer!
This Saturday I’ll be presenting #Coyoteways in Redondo Beach, CA as a part of the #BookToAction program with @californiacenterforthebook 🐕🌲I’ll be performing music from the #Coyoteways record with @stwbass and talking about coyotes in America both mythological and biological. Always great to help people learn about what a delightful and useful animal coyotes are, not a threat to us. 🐾 #coyote #America #urbanwildlife #wildlife #canislatrans
After sharing my breakfast with a squirrel recently, I decided I need to carry more appropriate snacks with me at all times. 💚🐹💚🐹💚🐹💚 . . . #newfavoritething #furryfriends #squirrel #forestfriends #animallover #vegan #squirrelsnacks #nomnom #bellingham #cuteanimals #wildlife #urbanwildlife

Saw this cute little guy outside my office today! It’s not often you see a snake in the middle of a Canadian city, in early Spring for that matter! #gartersnake #snake #cutelittlefella #urbanwildlife

Can’t beat a sunny Spring morning to remind you that our planet is incredibly diverse and beautiful. Easy to forget when you live in the middle of a big city and spend your time shaming humanity for all the filth, criminality and corruption... #londonparks #greenery #citylungs #keepbreathing #keepplanting #sunshine #nature #urbanwildlife #breathing #trees #birds #squirrels #foxes #worthgettingupfor #mothernature #earthday #happyearthday #savetheplanet

One of the things I love most about wildlife photography is that I observe animals much more than I might otherwise, and I have questions! Questions I must learn the answers to... I regularly research wildlife behavior, mating rituals, the anatomy differences between males and females in a species, breeding times, when babies are born, "litter" sizes, lifespans, and so much more. Do you know what that plate on some of these pelicans' beaks indicates? Without cheating, give me your answer in the comments and I will come back and see who got it right and/or give you the scoop! . © Roots and Twigs Photography © rootsandtwigs.com Facebook ID: rootsandtwigs . · Fine Art · · Location/Studio/Destination Sessions · · Families | Seniors | Children | Corporate | Dance | Weddings | Events · Fort Collins, Colorado and surrounding areas. . . . #bird #birder #breeding #colorado #coloradogram #coloradoinstagram #colorfulcolorado #fortcollins #fortcollinsphotographer #fortcollinsphotography #framed #frontrange #frontrangephotographer #frontrangewildlife #getoutside #inmybackyard #nature #naturephotography #orange #outsideisfree #passionpassport #pelican #pelicans #shootingthrough #theoutbound #urbanwildlife #visitfortcollins #wildlife #wildlifephotographer #wildlifephotography
Blue skies through the Green Roof ☀️🌿 ... Home to 26 bird species and five bat species, our 6.75-acre green roof welcomed 9 crates of honeybees over the #EarthDay weekend.

Mom bought a pair of garden elephants when were stationed on #Guam and I’ve decided to keep them as extra fancy squirrel feeders. #icallhimrocky #urbanwildlife #usaf #gardentherapy
#Raccoons are probably one of my #favourite things to see in the #city . They waddle by all #fluffy , and when they grab things with those little hands! I just want to hold them and #pet them. But I always #remind myself they are #wild and should stay that way. #keepbcwild #wildlifephotography #urbanwildlife #photography #panasonic #pacificcoast #lumixfz300 #wildlife #bcwildlife #bcparks
