"I dont have Gray Feathers, I have Wisdom Highlights!" . It takes a smart bird to be able to make trans-continental flights to & from their ranges, all the while not getting eaten, starving, or flying into a window twice a year, multiple years 😉 . #PurpleHaze #wildlife #wildlifefilm #wildlifedocumentary #documentary #wildlifefilmmaker #conservation #conservationfilm #bird #birds #birdsofinstagram #birdnerd #audubon #birdstheword #PurpleMartins #purplemartinlandlord #animals #animalsofinstagram #optoutside #getoutside #adventure #explore #educate #inspire #conserve
Common Myna, a native of Southern Asia | Ecologically, the Hawaiian Islands are in pretty bad shape, with one of the world’s highest extinction rates. Not only have the islands been plagued by habitat loss, but a suite of non-native birds compete for resources with native birds. • • #commonmyna #invasive #extinction #hawaii #maui #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #audubon #aves #bb_of_ig #kings_birds #naturyst #bird_brilliance #ornithology #ecology #feather_perfection #pocket_birds #nature_brilliance #nature_perfection #nature_sultans #birds_captures #naturegram #nature_worldwide_birds #migration #total_birds #animalelite #nikonnofilter #everything_animals #animal_sultans #animalkingdom

Rusty-barred Owl
Female Bobolink at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge, Delaware
Been wanting to see these pheasants in flight for a couple years, I never seem to be ready. Finally captured one yesterday. These are no doubt game birds, raised for hunting, but they are still beautiful birds, especially in golden hour. While I claim that all my birds are wild, these are admittedly pretty borderline. While they are roaming wild, they are as close to a captive animal as it gets.

When people think of owls, they usually picture this #Birdoftheweek . Can you identify it for #WhatisItWednesday ?
Impressive shot by @neilsimmonsphotography , who saw eye to eye with this Bald Eagle. #bayphotospotlight #repost ・・・ Bald Eagle with snow flurries along the Snake River near Alpine Wyoming. This guy was in a tree level with my view so I was able to get some “straight on” shots. One of the most important goals in wildlife photography is getting the right angle so you’re not looking straight up a tree or down from the road which is very common in Yellowstone. This reminds me of my long career shooting portraits. With a person we wouldn’t want to shoot with the camera low looking up because it can make people look overweight or give them a double chin. This can be really tricky if the photographer is a short person, often leading them to need a ladder all the time. My first inclinations to wildlife photography were to get any shot I could. Now that I’ve been at it for a while I can be a lot more “choosy” waiting for the best light and working on getting better angles like this one. 🦅 🐍 💦 🐟 🌲 🌎 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #wyoming #discoverearth #wonderful_places #naturelovers #nature_perfection #epic_captures #natureaddict #travelphoto #traveler #wildernesapeople #jacksonholewyoming #nationalpark #wyoming #picoftheday #grandtetons #tetons #jacksonholedaily #visitjacksonhole #jacksonholewy #snakeriver #natgeoyourshot #bayareaphotographer #audubon #audubonsociety #jacksonholewild

Great grey owls in the snow are always a winning combination. I was lucky enough to spot this guy from the my car while on a drive, lucky I had my camera on me at the time!

Great blue heron hanging out above the pond.
“Lost & Found” (49 of 60) Vancouver, BC. December, 2017. I don’t think I have ever encountered a great blue heron without feeling the need to say, “hey look! A great blue heron!” ...that’s it. That’s all I’ve got for this post.

Swamp Sparrow (Melospiza Georgiana) Any wetland, swamp, or mash soundtrack wouldn’t be complete without the song of these birds. Swamp Sparrows only nest in wetlands but a wetland doesn’t have be a massive sprawling place it can be relatively small area! They eat a variety of insects and plant matter they actually have longer legs than other members of its genus for wading in shallow water and they will even stick their heads underwater. Plus isn’t this little one just so cute?? #birdsorbust #swampsparrow #birds #birdphotography #sparrow #sparrows #sparrowsofinstagram #nature #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #wildlife #conservation #cornelllabofornithology #audubon #audubon_sc #scwildlife #winterbirds #canon #tamron
Great horned owl. Tough angle but you can see his face. Would have never found him if a friendly birder didn't point him out. I'm always impressed by how nice the birders are in Central Park. Thank you for all your kindness over the years. #greathornedowl #owl #photochug #birds #birdcp #birdsofinstagram #birdsofcentralpark #ornithology #audubon

This ruddy turnstone was a busy little fellow. When it wasn't looking for food to eat along the edge of the water on the slippery rocks, it was doing a little grooming to stay gorgeous while eating. I wish I could look as adorable as the turnstones do when I am at the grocery store gathering my food. #RuddyTurnstone #turnstone #shorebirds #birds #Audubon #AudubonSC #HuntingtonBeachStatePark #SouthCarolina #AtlanticOcean #DawnitaHallPhotography #WowGodMoment

A lovely encounter captured by @mermaidmasterpieces ! Have you spotted a Snowy Owl yet this year? • This is a true #ethicalowlphoto - if they look at you or fly away, you may be too close. Please remember to respect these visitors from the Arctic tundra. These birds are tired and stressed from their long journey. Please follow these guidelines when viewing Snowy Owls this winter: • Don’t try to creep close. Be content to view at a distance. Give Snowy Owls a space of 200 to 300 feet or more. This is not a bird you should be sneaking up on with your camera phone. Use binoculars and spotting scopes if you have them. • Try to stay as a group if there is more than one observer. Never encircle the owl. All viewers should stay on one side of the bird. • Snowy owls are powerful hunters and very capable of capturing prey – please do not try to feed them. • Don’t observe these owls for an overly long period of time. Your presence causes stress. • Spread the word about respectful birding etiquette and keeping a safe distance. You can help to ensure that these Snowy Owls have a better chance of making it home to the arctic region this spring.
🥰 Your sweetness is my weakness.🥰 #blackcappedchickadee

The others weren’t impressed with Albert’s hot air balloon. Who needs hot air when you have wings, they said. Plus, how do you steer that thing? ___________________________________________ This is maybe my favorite photo from Albuquerque. The Duke City is the “hot air ballooning capital of the world,” and host of the annual International Balloon Fiesta each fall. It is also home to the the International Balloon Museum, which houses “one of the world’s finest collections of hot air ballooning equipment and memorabilia.” Ballooning is so popular in Albuquerque due in part to the “Albuquerque Box,” a predictable set of wind patterns that make navigation fairly simple. (I don’t know this for a fact, but these same wind patterns might be responsible for the Albuquerque “snow hole” as well). The balloon shown here is one from Rainbow Ryders, a company which offers sunrise and sunset rides every day of the year, as well as rides for special occasions. ___________________________________________ Sandhill Cranes | Rio Grande Nature Center State Parks, Albuquerque, NM | 12/29/2018 . . . #your_best_birds  #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #bb_of_ig #kings_birds #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #birds_adoredd #thebirdingsquad #birdsandblooms #birds_captures #nature_worldwide_birds #total_birds #audubon #birdwatching #newmexicobirds #birdsofnewmexico #abq #505 #dukecity #landofenchantment #audubonnm #nmstateparks #newmexicotrue #travelNM #thetexasbirdertravels #sandhillcrane #hotairballoon #rainbowryders #ballooning
My mom said to few that broke my heart. "He is who he is. Hes not gunna change".. I remember my 1st real life snake sighting. I was reaching up to hold Dad's muscly index finder while he was talking to the old farmer down the gravel road. He taught me to not interrupt but there was a jet black with bright yellow stripe snake slithering next to my feet coming up from the ditch on the side of the road. I couldn't interupt I tried tugging a bit but Dads calloused fingers & neighborly conversations went on w/out me & my world was then an impeneratable world of a fixation of watching this gardner snake slither through my feet. My next book was a green Audubon Society Field guide to Reptiles & Amphibians of North America. I soon memorized every name of every reptile & Amphibian in North America. And my fascination with snakes & nature never changed. 20 years ago I went to see the exotic tropical snakes in real life and in the wild. At 19 I went to the heart of big snake & snake diversity- jungle. The first day I took a two day bus ride through the Andes to get to the tropical lowlands - the head waters of the Amazon. While gazing out the windows I saw way up the road a snake! Crossing the road! I screamed to get the bus driver to emergency pull over. I ran out the door, ran down the road & leaped on a snake that was just about to disappear back into the jungle. I was so excited I lost my mind! It was a #rainbowboa Constrictor #epicrates cenchria! So incredibly beautiful I had to show everyone on the bus! The bus exploded in terror. Everyone stampeded to the back of the bus clawing at the windows. One of the locals threw me a gunny sack he had that was holding a chicken. The rest of the bus ride was about as awkward as the Snakes on a Plane movie... when the bus ride was over at the end of the road I overnighted in a termite destroyed shack. That morning I went for my first walk in the jungle, the mist sifted through the palm and bromeliad leaves, the sound of the insects was piercing & the smell of wet warm decomposing leaves under my toes was my awakening that this was where I was always meant to be. I watched the boa be free again & slither away. Here I am now.
