Day 18 Portrait #rebelsunitedjan2019potd ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ . The woodstork has earned the nickname “Preacherbird” because they insist on the practice of standing around, as if contemplating life, after eating. 🤷🏻‍♀️ . ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ . #woodstork #birdingphotography #audubon #nikonnofilter #animal_supershots #birdinginflorida #bird_brilliance #birds_adored #birdfreaks #blooming_animals #cleargram #dm_photolife_nature #fx_hdr #gf_nature #gf_wildlife #hey_ihadtosnapthat #marvelouz_animals #naturegrampixels #nc_cuties #ptk_birds_animals #planetbirds #pocket_family_member #pocket_wildlife #pocket_birds #rebel_pureimages #usa_naturehippys #your_best_birds

Wood Stork (Mycteria americana) during a gliding descent. The bird flew to a spot directly over its eventual landing site while still at a significant altitude, crudely estimated to be about 200 meters. It immediately adopted the gliding posture shown in the photograph: wings at a high angle of attack, alulae deployed, legs down, all of which create drag and slow airspeed. This gliding flight attitude and posture continued throughout its entire spiraling descent, consisting of about five almost perfect circles about 20 meters in diameter without a single flap of its wings until the last second as it slowed its speed to zero for landing. The landing at its nesting site where it greeted its mate was spot on. It is easy to take this ordinary episode for granted; birds fly toward and land at the right place every day, after all. The complexity of the spiral glide, however, is mind-numbing. Variables such as altitude, airspeed, windspeed, groundspeed, rate of descent, circle diameter, drag, lift, gravity, and so on all had to be taken into acount when the descent started so the glide would terminate at exactly the right place in three dimensional space. The necessary calculations would seem to require a powerful computer. Or the brain of a bird. ... ... Boynton Beach, Florida, USA. ... Nikon D850, 1/2000 sec, f/6.3, ISO 250.

An up close look at the same Barred Owl momma from yesterday and her young sitting in their open air cavity.

Young Flamingo - Bonaire - November 2018. How cute is he? I don’t have any new Pelicans to post so I am doing Flamingo Friday. 🌸 #bonaire
Snail Kites feed almost exclusively on apple snails and are well suited for@the task. Their legs are longer allowing them to stay dry while grabbing snails from shallow water. They also have long, thin, narrow beaks to fit inside the snail shell to get at the morsel hidden within.

One of our more common sparrows at the Viera Wetlands is the Savannah Sparrow. You know you've seen a Savannah by the yellow eyebrow patch. The yellow makes it much more easily identifiable than some other sparrows, many of which give even experienced birders some ID trouble. #birdinginflorida #birds_captures #birdimages #birding #birdingphotography #bns_birds #allmightybirds #birds_adored #birds_of_instagram #birdfreaks #kings_birds #birding_lounge #best_birds_of_ig #bestshotz_birds #eye_spy_birds #birders #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #planetbirds #your_best_birds #pocket_birds #bestbirdshots

Every time but one the little fish and the green and spotted frogs know the egret's bamboo legs from the thin and polished reeds at the edge of the silky world of water. Then, in their last inch of time, they see, for an instant, the white froth of her shoulders, and the white scrolls of her belly, and the white flame of her head. What more can you say about such wild swimmers? They were here, they were silent, they are gone, having tasted sheer terror. Therefore I have invented words with which to stand back on the weedy shore--- with which to say: Look! Look! What is this dark sheath that opens like a white door? - Mary Oliver #birdinginflorida #wildandwilder #loves_united_birds #loves_united_animals #nature_shooters #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #loves_united_wildnature #wildlife_seekers #wildlife_vision #naturelovers #canonusa #birds_illife #bestshotz_birds #best_birds_of_ig #natures_marvels #natures_hub #wildlifeaddicts #rebels_nature #live_love_wildlife #loves_united_nature #usa_naturehippys #bird_brilliance #worldshare #marvelouz_animals #nature_brilliance #animal_captures #cleargram

Random bird pictures Thursday! Watching the shore birds is always a fun part of being at the beach ... and they aren’t all sea gulls, either. The first one here is a willet, relatively calm and tall. The second one is a sanderling ... these guys are much less calm, constantly chasing the waves back and forth. . . I like birds. . . . #bird #birds #birding #birdwatching #birdphotography #birdinginflorida #floridabirds #willet #sanderling #shorebirds #canaveralnationalseashore #beach #beachlife #nationalseashore #nps #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #publicland #findyourpark #gooutside #florida #floridacoast #wildlife
