Sora from above! Usually how one sees this bird as you look into a marsh, but one rarely gets views like this!!! Best looks I’ve ever had in my life as it strolled along the edge of the Magee Marsh boardwalk. . . . . . #birding #birds #birdsofinstagram #birdwatching #wildlife #wildlifephotography #birdphotography #nature #bird #naturephotography #bestbirdshots #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #birdstagram #bird_brilliance #birdlovers #kings_birds #birdfreaks #naturelovers #birdlife #feather_perfection #pocket_birds #eye_spy_birds #photography #canon #animals #best_birds_of_ig #audubonsociety #photooftheday #ornithology

The Eastern Screech Owl 🦉, a master of disguise. Finally spotted this one at Mount Auburn Cemetery (@mountauburncemetery) after walking by this particular tree dozens of times before. These owls sometimes seek out a tree cavity to rest in during the day, and position themselves to fill the mouth of the cavity... it’s feathers blending seamlessly with the tree bark. The second, zoomed out photo, shows how one could overlook such effective camouflage.

Golden-collared Honeycreepers are simply sexy. In Ecuador they're far more common in the eastern slope than they are in the western slope of the Andes. Nevertheless, in #mashpi #Amagusa reserve a pair visit feeders regularly making good views and photo opportunities possible. @tropicalbirding . . . . . . . #birds_adored #birds_captures #best_birds_planet #best_birds_of_world #birds_private #your_best_birds #birdfreaks #best_birds_of_ig #eye_spy_birds #planetbirds #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #pocket_birds #bird_brilliance #nature_worldwide_birds #dailybirdpix #kings_birds #igbirds #igclubbirds #birdphotography #audubonsociety #natgeo #birdsofinstagram #birdsplace

I had the privilege of visiting the @wildbirdresearch banding station in #newjersey this past Sunday. It was really great to see @gourmetbiologist and @nj_naturalist , and all the birds they get up there. Two of the many highlights were these breeding Orchard Orioles (male: left, female: right). The banding station is located in shrub land, which is quite different from the #asheville station, and consequently hosts a variety of different species. I hope to visit there again, but in the meantime am excited to see what we get down here in #northcarolina tomorrow! ______________________________________________ ❗️Licensed bird bander.

Ever wonder how young birds grow from egg-sized to full adult-sized in such a short period? A female Savannah Sparrow must gather 10 times her weight in food to feed herself and her young during the 8 days they are in the nest. This sparrow was named after the place where the bird was first identified...Savannah, Georgia. Savannah Sparrow (Bruant des Près), Chebogue, Nova Scotia, June 23rd. #Bird #birds #canada #novascotia #canon #planetbirds #wildlife #wildlifephotography #naturelover #photography #naturephotography #canon_photos #nature #bns_birds #audubonsociety #canonphotographers #canadawildlife #igers_novascotia #birdsadored #birdsofinstagram #instagood #instagram #instagramers #birds_perfection #ig_photooftheday #ig_birdwatchers #discoverhalifax #halifaxnoise #imagesofcanada #haligonia

At the edge of the Arctic Ocean, where powerful fogs meet the land, pac-ice gives way to channels of open water. There Pacific loons gather to court in the middle of June. Spring still young here, I have celebrated and chased the season all of my life. There is something here, vital, stark, and utterly indescribably beautiful about this landscape. Alive and in love with the arctic. 🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸 #nikonusa #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #bird_brilliance #birding_lounge #pocket_birds #eye_spy_birds #audubonsociety #best_birds_of_ig #natgeoyourshot #birds_adored #naturyst #birds_captures #best_birds_of_world #spring #nature_perfection #nature #birdfreaks #birds_illife #planetbirds #birding #explore #birdsonearth #light #warbler #yellow #bbcspringwatch #wildlifephotography #nature_worldwide_birds #dailybirdpix

Common Paraque • I don’t like using flash on night birds. I know it’s necessary and I don’t disprove of the use but I’m not a huge fan of the look. So here’s a Common Paraque from Belize. This was a long exposure photo, manually focused and the light source was a street lamp 15yards or so away. I liked the natural vignetting from the focused light source. • Ben Knoot • • • • #birds_adored #birds_captures #best_birds_planet #best_birds_of_world #birds_private #your_best_birds #birdfreaks #best_birds_of_ig #eye_spy_birds #planetbirds #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #pocket_birds #bird_brilliance #nature_worldwide_birds #dailybirdpix #kings_birds #igbirds #igclubbirds #photography_our_world #audubonsociety #birdsofinstagram #birdsplace #birds_perfection #bestbirdpix #birdsplace #bestshotz_birds #w1ldplanet

A Harris’s sparrow dropped by the back yard in May. Sparrows seem to get dismissed as they are less colourful and so common. I think these are quite attractive however. The Harris’s sparrows only show up during migration as they nest in northern Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Nunavut and Yukon. Their nesting sites are so remote that the first nest found by an ornithologist was as recent as 1931. I believe that they are the only birds that nest exclusively in Canada. #manitoba #manitobaphotography #wildlifephotography #birds #birdsofinstagram #birdphotography #birdphoto #exploremanitoba #audubonsociety #prairiebirds #best_bird_shots #birdfreaks #naturemanitoba #manitobafeatures #kute_birds #canonphotography #sparrow #harrisssparrow #backyardbirds

Ahoy there, wee one! This little #redbreastednuthatch hopped down from the conifer onto my fence for a hot second. I snapped a few blurry pics before it hopped away again. First time I’ve seen one in that tree or in my backyard. What a cutie! My yard seems to be attracting the little guys only right now. I haven’t seen the jay or any orioles in several weeks. I’m cool with that as I adore the antics of the small birdies. ☺️#bestbirdphotography #best_birds_of_ig #denveraudubon #nuts_about_birds #bird_lovers_daily #birdwatchers #intobirds #audubonsociety #backyardphotography #fujixt3 #fuji100400 #coloradophotography #colorado #getoutside #coloradowildlife #coloradonature #coloradobirds #coloradobirders #birdingcolorado

The other day I took a wrong turn and was lucky to find a colony of Cave Swallows! These architect birds build their nests out of mud and rocks. You can find them spring through fall, usually under bridges and overpasses close to water.

Ñandú Rhea Habita en praderas abiertas con altos pajonales, campos cultivados en una gran extensión. El ñandú es un ave incapaz de volar, sin embargo tiene la capacidad de correr a gran velocidad.

Killdeer lay their eggs against a pebbly background where they are extremely well concealed. Broadly speaking, the colors of eggs in one way or another help with their concealment. Egg colors are produced from pigments by glands in the female's oviduct. As the egg moves down that tube the colors are squeezed out onto the shell. As ecologist Bernd Heinrich put it: ". . . the motion of the egg affects the color patterns. It is as if innumerable brushes hold still while the canvas moves. If the egg remains still there are spots, and if it moves while the glands continue secreting, then lines and scrawls result."⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #Killdeer #Charadriusvociferus #montanafwp #Audubon #audubonsociety #bird #birds #birdphotography #birding #birds #feather_perfection #canonusa #nanpapix #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #instanaturefriends #allnatureshots #nakedplanet #animalonearth #wildlifeplanet #splendid_animals #animalelite #marvelshots #EarthCapture @bbcearth #featured_wildlife #wildlifeonearth #live_love_wildlife #discoverwildlife #wildlifeig

After being away from Instagram for about a year, I have decided to come back with not only my photographs of birds, but of all of nature. I shall be posting birds (of course), butterflies, mushrooms, wild edibles, flowers, landscapes and whatever else that presents itself to me that I can tastefully capture and display. Along with the photograph, I will be including some tidbits of information about the species or species featured. To start things off, I begin #speaktoearth with this banger shot of Yellow-green Vireo (Vireo flavoviridis). This fella came all the way from Mexico to visit Key Largo, FL. Yes, I chased it. Yes, I am that crazy to go 700+ miles on a one-day round trip. Totally worth being able to capture this shot (and audio recording) of him singing his heart out. One cool thing about this bird is that every time he bursts out a song—which is a rapid-fire, highly-varied, two-syllable chirp—he spreads his tail feathers open and shut just as fast as the song can be delivered. Now, if you’ve read all the way down to this point, you may as well stay tuned for tomorrow’s post... . . . . . . . . #yellowgreenvireo #vireoflavoviridis #songbird #mexico #keylargo #nuts_about_birds #bird_perfection #birds_of_ig #birdfreaks #eye_spy_birds #birds_captures #allmightybirds #planetbirds #pocket_birds #birdphotography #bird_brilliance #your_best_birds #audubonsociety #wildlife #nature #naturephotography #splendid_animals #birdlovers #instabird #birding #splendid_animals #wildlife_perfection #nature_brilliance #ig_nature

The American Ornithological Society, a scientific body that’s responsible for the classification and naming of birds in North America, agreed to officially change the name of the Gray Jay to Canada Jay. The history of the name “Canada Jay” runs deep: It was the name Perisoreus canadensis had gone by from at least 1831 to 1957, and it was the name John J. Audubon used on his original, hand-engraved plates.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #WildlifeWednesday #wildlifephotography #canadianwildlife #AlgonquinPark #CanadaJay ⠀⠀ #birdnerd #audubonsociety #opcmag #bird #birds #birdsofinstagram #bird_lovers #birdwatching #birder #birding #birdphotography #your_best_birds #MartinaSchneiderPhotography #explorecanada #exploreontario #imagesofcanada #sharecangeo #canoncanada #photographyislove ⠀⠀
