Birds have three eyelids: one upper, one lower and a nictitating membrane. The third is between the two other eyelids and the cornea and moves sideways. It is used in cleaning and protecting the eye. It is believed that birds cover their eyes with the nictitating membrane when under water. This has been disputed by some, as the membrane, being translucent and not transparent, would obscure the sight of the bird in its search for food.The nictitating membrane is also believed to comes in useful during flying. The bird cannot afford to close its eyelids often when in the air. Loss of vision, even momentary, caused by closed eyelids can throw the bird off balance. In frame : A Storkbilled kingfisher after a failed attempt with it's nictitating membrane open.

burung apung. makanannya yang berupa serangga dan invertebrata kecil lainnya, apung biasa menjelajahi tempat-tempat terbuka seperti persawahan, bantaran sungai, dan tepi jalan. Bila terganggu, terbang rendah menggelombang dan hinggap kembali dalam jarak yang tidak terlalu jauh. ini mudah dijumpai,jadi jangan kita ganggu ya. #your_best_birds #bird #birds #birdsofinstagram #birdstagram #birdwatching #instabird #birdphotography #birding #instabirds #wildlife #bestbirdshots #wildlifephotography #nuts_about_birds #kings_birds #birdlover #birdlovers #birdfreaks #pocket_birds #allmightybirds #animal #eye_spy_birds #ig_bird_watchers #sassy_birds #ig_discover_birdslife #bns_birds

Eastern Whipbird⁣ Warriewood Wetland, NSW Australia⁣ ⁣ Did you think it's called a whipbird because it might have some sort of whip tail structure or a dominatrix bird! 😏⁣ ⁣ But actually! These birds are characteristic for their whip-crack calls. It is performed by two birds calling in unison. The male bird makes the first call that is the whipcrack sound and the female responds with a kind of 'choo choo choo'. This behaviour involves great co-ordination from the animals!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #nellyxiaophotography #sassy_birds #pocket_birds #best_birds_of_ig #best_birds_of_instagram #feather_perfection #allmightybirds #eye_spy_birds #bird_brilliance #birdsofaustralia #bns_birds #birds_illife #total_birds #ausgeo #igbirds #birdselite #canon_photography #ausgeo #planetbirds #global4nature #igscwildlife #bb_of_ig #animal_sultans #tgif_aviary #ig_birdwatchers #birdfreaks #igclubbirds #bird_lovers_daily #whatschirping

Western Gerygone - this is a tiny warbler with a characteristic black-and-white tail! It has white patches on the outer sides of its tail and a broad black terminal bar underneath! It feeds in foliage of trees or bushes looking for insects and spiders and this one was quite inquisitive as to what I was doing! #1birdshot #1natureshot #birds_captures #birds_adored #birds_private #pocket_birds #ptk_birds_animals #feathersandphotos #nature_worldwide_birds #birds_illife #planetbirds #best_birds_planet #birdsofaustralia #birdlifeaustralia #birds__ig #best_birds_of_world #birdrules #bns_birds #birdlifeoz #birdwatchinglife101 #naturyst #raw_birds #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots

The Yellow Honeyeater lives in woodlands and eucalyptus forests close to creeks, or in riverine vegetation and paperbark swamps, from Cape York Peninsula as well as coastal Qld down to Mackay! They typify the tropics and I wTched a couple of them come down to the creek to have a dip! Several times it and its mate did it so I thought I’d snap the sequence of diving in!! 💦 #birdsofaustralia #birdlifeaustralia #birdlifeoz #pocket_birds #1birdshot #1natureshot #birds_captures #birds_adored #ptk_birds_animals #feathersandphotos #raw_birds #birds_illife #bestbirdshots #your_best_birds #planetbirds #best_birds_planet

The Red Cheeked Parakeet, patiently feeding his chicks (there was one more inside the nest waiting its turn). We observed this gorgeous bird, found only in Eastern Indonesia, PNG and N Australia, looking cautiously about for dangers before it approached its nest, bearing food for its young.

The paparazzi – literally the worst nightmare for some celebrities. Take Days of the Daintree gossip — News here breaks faster than a Kardashian can rack up the likes on Instagram. We were the first to report Lizzies pregnancy, the first to get footage of Ericas ummm cannibal incident. Phil and monica may have wanted to keep their relationship blues news on the down-low. Not a chance. We paps always deliver. But for those celebs who feed off the limelight, the paparazzi is like Christmas – every month of the year. Sonnie here can’t get enough of those flash wielding photographers and if we aren’t chasing him well he chases us straight onto the boat and it seems he has a new lady in his life.

A pensive Blue Whistling Thrush in a mixed forest of Pine and Oak in the lower Himalayas. While the Thrushes are doing well with a spread from Central Asia through India and on to South-East Asia, it is the Banj (Himalayan Oak) that is in decline. Requiring moist, loamy soil and growing from 1500m to 2400m in altitude, they are very sensitive to fire and frost. The annual man-made pre-monsoon fires in the hills of Uttarakhand are causing huge damage to these forests. Shot at Kalmatia Sangam, Almora. Uttarakhand. 04/2013.
