Two for Joy, couple birds who depend on air, water and land for their survival. So their habitats are important for them. Forests are necessary. Birds are in this order 1) Oriental Pied Hornbill their nests generally on trees. Essential for seed dispersals in forests. 2) Mergansers are birds like ducks... Essential to check the population of fishes in the rivers 3) Red wattled Lapwings are ground nesting birds... It's alarm call sounds like 'Did you do it' and feeds on insects... Let them live longer and it will help us to enjoy clean air and water. #hornbills #savehabitat #merganser #lapwing #birds #birdphotography #bird #nature #birdsofinstagram #wildlife #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #birdwatching #birding #of #best #photography #ig #brilliance #nikon #birdlovers #naturelovers #bestbirdshots #birdlife #captures #bhfyp #photography #conservationcourse

Across the way another male is doing his dance. Will he steal the female sitting on the nest? I can’t quite tell if he has bluer feet. • • • • • #wildlifephotography #wildlife #birds #birdsofinstagram #bird #evolution #galapagos #wildlife_shots #allyouneedisecuador #bluefootedbooby #birdwatching_wildlife #birdphotography #birding #your_best_birds #wildlife_perfection #bestbirdshots #ecuador #birdstagram #elite_birds #nuts_about_birds #islaisabela

I'll take THAT!! After just a few days off the ledge, this fledgling Peregrine is showing its sibling how it's done. After this, presumably, the first food exchange, he decided to venture out for a long solo flight to give a few Chimney Swifts "the business". Looks like momma may have a prodigy. #birdnerd #birdstagram #planetbirds #birds_adored #birdsofinstagram #bestbirdshots #your_best_birds #pocket_birds #best_birds_of_ig #birdlover #ohioexplored #bird_watchers_daily #bird_brilliance #marvelouz_animals #wildlife_perfection #only_raptors #nature_perfection #best_birds_of_world #nuts_about_birds #birdphotography #animalelite #wildohio #your_wild_ohio #naturalohio #elite_raptors

A very quick post today, one of the beautiful Gannets I have been photographing in flight. I have been focused on capturing dive images because I love the twisting aerodynamic contortions of these birds as they literally drop from the sky transforming themselves into fish hunting arrows. I am mesmerised by the speed of the action, and love the concentration it takes to photograph them. When I am photographing Seabirds in action that is all that exists, the rest of the world disappears and time seems to literally fly. I will think I have been there half an hour when in reality two or three hours have passed!! Today we have an appointment with the oncologist to find out if Terry is on the trial for the new immunotherapy drops Opdivo and Relatlimab and also what Chemotherapy treatment will be involved and when it will all start. In this image the bird looked determined and focused on his mission so I thought it was a good one for today. Knowing more will help us both!! #planetbirds #wildlifeplanet #seeaustralia #earthcapture #wildlifeplanet #naturyst #birdsonearth #bestbirdshots #exclusive_bird #eye_spy_birds #kings_birds_ #nuts_about_birds #bird_freaks #best_birds_of_ig #your_best_birds #bb_of_ig #birds_of_instagram #bestnatureshots #best_birds_of_world #feather_perfection #birds_adored #birdlifeoz #melissazappelli #melissazappelliphotography #wildwingimages #birdphotography #wildlifephotography #australasiangannet #gannet #seabird

“She and 37 of Her Sibs”— this Peregrine was successfully fledged along with three others that year. Her parents successfully fledged 38 young ones in 9 years— four each year and five in two warm spring seasons. Warm spring temps are optimum for falcons in the northeastern USA. #peregrinefalcon #falcon #peregrinefalcons #elite_raptors #birdofprey #birdsofprey #toppredator #fastestanimal

Pied-Billed Grebe INTERESTING FACT: Grebes eat copious amounts of their own feathers! At times their stomaches can be half full of their own feathers! #birding_lounge #bestbirdshots #birding #grebe #fishing #fish #meal #stomach #feather #feathers #trout #birdsofinstagram #nuts_about_birds #cute #canon #utahbirds #birdstagram #utahgram #utahphotographer #nature #picoftheday

On a recent late evening I went with my family for a quick visit to a local spot where Black-crowned Night Herons congregate this time of year. It was an uneventful little trip except for a sighting of a rare hummingbird by all of us. The hummingbird flew away before I could get a proof of life shot, which was really regrettable because it was unquestionably not a Ruby-throat. I think we came upon a western one that migrated too far... Anyway, I didn’t think it was worth reviewing the few photos I took because the herons were at a distance insufficient for my 100-400 zoom lens to capture much feather detail, and I didn’t have time to wait for them to fly... All that said, I’m glad I ended up reviewing my photos because I came across this one, which made me chuckle. Is it just me who thinks this face is comical? . . . . . . . . #your_best_birds #perfect_birds #raw_birds #best_birds_of_world #intobirds #heron #herons #blackcrownednightheron #bird_freaks #natgeoyourshot #birdlovers #bestbirdshots #bestbirdshot #best_bird_of_ig #birds_adored #pocket_birds #birdsonearth #planetbirds #rebels_nature #birdportraits #birdportrait #nightheron #nightherons #1birdshot #tgif_aviary #king_birds_ #1macroshot #bns_birds

Why do you go to church? There can be many ways to answer this question. Some of us go because we have a sense of duty to our family or to God. We may go because of friends or a desire to serve others, or perhaps to study the Bible and learn more about God. The reason why we go to church may not seem important to you, but it is of the utmost importance to God. God desires a true relationship with us. A relationship that is rooted in love, not in duty or obligation. We should attend church because it is "the house of God" and we should desire to want to be with Him. When we go to church we should not just be going through the motions of praying, worshipping, and being taught, but we should have an earnest longing to want a relationship with God. And to have a relationship with God means we must also listen. Listen to the still small voice of the Lord, listen to what He wants to speak to your heart. God is only waiting for you to stop speaking and to quiet your thoughts, to wait on Him in stillness so He can touch your heart. The next time you go to church take some time to quiet yourself before the Lord. Ask the Holy Spirit to come and be with you, to speak to your heart. Do not do all the talking, but give God a chance to speak and take the time to hear what He says. Ecc 5:1 Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. To draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they are doing evil. Psalm 62:1 For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. Psa 25:5 Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long. Turquoise Tanager Trinidad W.I 🇹🇹

. • Barrancolí, DescriptionBroad-billed todies, (todus subulatus) • . . Este pajarito ha sido comparado a “una joya de esmeralda y rubí.” Con su color verde brillante, garganta roja, pecho blanquecino, lados rosa y porte regordete, el barrancolí tiene un aire muy simpático que a todos agrada. Sus vistosos colores hicieron que los primeros naturalistas que visitaron la isla lo confundieran a primera vista con un diminuto loro o papagayo; en Haití todavía perdura el nombre de “kolibrí” para él, quizás por su pequeña talla y delgado pico. Sin embargo, la familia del barrancolí (tódidos o todis) está más cercanamente emparentada con los momótidos (pájaros raqueta) y alcedínidos (martines pescadores y afines). . . Cuba, Jamaica y Puerto Rico tienen su propia especie de todi, pero sólo La Española fue premiada con dos: el barrancolí y el chicuí. Aunque las diferencias son sutiles, el barrancolí puede distinguirse del chicuí por su canto, por tener un pico más corto y ancho, colores más pálidos, ser ligeramente mayor en tamaño y también porque suele ocupar tierras más bajas que aquél (por debajo de los 700 metros). Sin embargo, ambas especies se solapan bastante en algunas zonas bajas y medias de montaña. . . El barrancolí está ampliamente distribuido; en 1931 fue considerado una de las especies más abundantes y constantemente vista de toda la isla. .

The White Ibis is easily one of the most elegant birds I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. Sunset, on the beach, with a cooperative bird. Can’t get better than that.

Aglaeactis cupripennis• Shining Sunbeam• colibrí cobrizo• colibrí de alas largas• colibrí paramuno• Dulce mamá• #Lifer 🌱 Vive en los bosques húmedos tropicales y subtropicales de Colombia, Ecuador y Perú, entre los 2.500 y 4.300 m de altitud. Se alimenta casi exclusivamente de néctar. Una gran especie de las zonas tropicales. Es muy raro verlo salir de estos bosques para trasladarse hasta la ciudad en busca de alimento. El pico de ambos sexos es corto y recto. Pero los machos son de un color marrón metálico en la parte superior, con una corona oscura en la cabeza e irisaciones de color púrpura y de un tono cobrizo en la zona de la cola. Su cuello y el pecho son de un color pardo rojizo, con la cola de un tono cobrizo. Las hembras, por su parte, es cierto que tienen el color de las plumas semblantes a las del macho, pero con un tono más apagado. Las irisaciones que tiene el macho en la parte superior las hembras no las poseen. Los jóvenes son bastante parecidas a las hembras hasta que realizan la primera muda de pluma. Son territoriales con lo que a su zona de alimento se refiere. No son violentos si personas se acercan a estas zonas, pero si se trata de otros animales que se alimenten de néctar, se pueden volver los mejores protectores de la zona con tal de mantenerla a salvo de posibles ladrones. Su alimento principal, y casi el único, es el néctar, del cuál extrae el azúcar que necesita para sobrevivir. No es una especie monógama. De hecho, cuando están en la época de celo, el colibrí cobrizo intenta aparearse con tantas hembras pueda. Las hembras, una vez terminado el proceso de cortejo y apareamiento, se ocupan de buscar un lugar en el que tener a las crías, generalmente en un hueco de árbol en el que construyen el nido. Ponen hasta dos huevos de pequeño tamaño. La tasa de supervivencia de las crías es muy bajo, ya que es la hembra quien se ocupa por completo del cuidado de las crías.Incuba los huevos durante unos 15 días.Incuba los huevos durante unos 15 días hasta que han nacido los polluelos, los alimentos y protege de los posibles depredadores hasta que han alcanzado la edad suficiente, generalmente de unos 10-12 días, para que puedan abandonar el nido
