In 2014 the @knightfdn , #WilliamPennFoundation , and @myphillypark came together and set out to transform 5 #Philly public spaces. Four years later all ribbons have been cut at @bartramsgarden , @lovettlibrary , @therailpark #centennialcommons and #discoveryphila @audubonphilly The learning, however, never stops. Check out @myphillypark blog for #beforeandafter photos!
Also at Gunlock today an elusive little Ruby Crowned Kinglet. The second photo is a blurry shot of his “crown”. I need second chances when these little fast guys show up... #naturephotography #birdphotography #birdwatching #bird #birdlovers #nikonp900 #nikoncoolpixp900 #coolpixp900 #nikon #audobon #audobonsociety #pictureoftheday #songbirds #songbird #kinglet #kinglets #kingletsofinstagram #rubycrownedkinglet
Northern Flicker (yellow-shafted) . Or could be hybrid of Northern and Gilded Flicker. I love the contrasting patterns and yellow is the perfect accent! . . . #arizonabirds #azbirds #desertbirds #desertbeauty #azwildlife #arizonawildlife #audobonsociety #capturearizona #backyardbirding #birdsofarizona #northernflicker #gildedflicker #woodpecker

On the high back country hills I encountered this beauty. A Snow Bunting! They travel south from the Arctic during Winter with Oregon being at the edge of its range. Its appearance here is erratic and somewhat rare so it was a real honor to photo this sweet bird. #snowbunting #buntings #elite_worldwide_birds #nuts_about_birds #audobonsociety #natgeowild #birdwatching #fearlessnature #keepitwild #birdlovers #wildlifeplanet #keeporegonwild #birdsofinstagram #bird_brilliance #pnw #oregonphotographer #pnwphotographer #pnwwilderness #best_birds_of_world
These Cedar WaxWings were enjoying the the berries off our flowering crab apple tree. There has been a flock of them here the last couple days, passing through to a warmer climate. I couldn't count them all, at least 75, they kept flying back and forth between the tree in this picture and the next picture. I tried so hard for some better shots, but with the branches and berries and cloudiness I struggled..but it was so enjoyable watching them. Sharing for #NatureLoveTuesday . Lovely hosts tagged. #coolbirds #birdsofmichigan #birdloversofinstagram #birdwatchingphotography #birdsofinstagram #birdspotting
An afternoon walk with the birds at Atascadero Lake. The second photo is actually two White Pelicans that are snuggling together. #birdwatching #birding #pelican #whitepelican #audobonsociety #cornelllabofornithology #egret #atascadero #slocounty #california

It's raining. I've been reading, and writing scatter-shot between chapters. I'm here in my living room, in the chair in the corner, but I'm there too. Dry leaves and damp ground, black water, a deer running uphill. There and everywhere else, an archive made by muscle and mind alike.
I spotted this beautiful Snowy Egret while at Audubon's Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in Naples, Fl. With a mixture of ecosystems you'll find an array of birds, reptiles, and maybe even a Florida Panther.

Pygmy Owl in Patagonia where many “birders” travel to see the diversity of birds .
I had some good fortune a week ago this past Saturday. I had just arrived at local refuge and was walking down a trail when I came upon Tom Howe a top birder in the area. There were two other men with him and they were all standing quietly staring at the ground so I stopped where I was. I didn’t want to disturb whatever they had found but they waved me in. When I walked up Tom told me he had located a LeConte’s Sparrow. This is a rare bird for East Tennessee. I was told by another top birder no one had documented this species in this part of the state in over 40 years and maybe longer. “This LeConte's Sparrow is an elusive bird that stays hidden in dense grass, often running along the ground. It is most easily seen and studied when flushed from its hiding spot. Birds on the wintering ground usually flush when the observer is less than 3 meters (10 ft) away, and often when less than 1 meter (3 ft) away.” ~ Cornell Lab Though shy it came out for a few shots and then a few days later I returned with some friends and we were able to locate it again and this time it wasn’t as shy. The light was great and we got great looks. What a great experience as we all saw the bird in good light and were able to get some good pictures. Have a great Tuesday! 😊 #kykerbottomsrefuge #birds #birdsofinstagtam #pocket_birds #nuts_about_birds @feather_perfection #feather_perfection #birdextreme #udog_feathers #cornellabofornithology @cornellabofornithology @feather_perfection #your_best_birds #birds_adored #bb_ig_ig #best_birds_of_ig #bird_brilliance #bestbirdshots #allmightybirds #anythingfeathered #audobonsociety #splendid_birds  #yearofthebird #birdofthemonth #birdyourworld
Visited this guy for about 90 min on Sunday. Watched him and his mate fly, play, and work. Always amazing to see. Www.kretchy.com #baldeagles #wildlife #wildlifephotography #audobonsociety #maine #maine_igers #kretchy
Not sure what these guys are but they flew around so quickly and gracefully, turning left and right just like starlings. #audobonsociety #birdwatching #westcoast #ornithology #northcal #zoom #californialove #cali #humboldt #seabird #birding
Went bird stalking today. Pictured are some Sandhill Cranes, Greater White-fronted geese, a Red-tailed hawk, and a Black-necked Stilt. Was hoping to see more Snow Geese but there were only a few around and were too far away to photograph.
