Fox has hurt her leg so I gave her brown bread and cheese rinds for breakfast. She was so hungry that she didn't wait for me to leave, and I got to share this little moment with her. She's a pretty girl 💞#beautifulfox #myurbanfox #urbanwildlife

Peek-a-boo! Eastern grey squirrels are all over Vancouver Island and cute but they're not native to this area. Oh and although they are called 'grey squirrels' they can come in other colors like black. はいひょっこりはん!ではなく、ひょっこりトウブハイイロリス。BCの都市部ではたくさん見ますが実は後から持ち込まれて広がってしまった種です。世界中で問題になっています。元は東海岸の🐿です。「ハイイロ」と言っても写真のように黒とか色んな色の個体がいます。 (Victoria, Oct. 2018) #victoria #vancouverisland #bc #canada #urbanwildlife #easterngreysquirrel #easterngraysquirrel #squirrel #black #peekaboo #nomnomnom #beaconhillpark #inthegrass #lateautumn #parklife #カナダ #ブリティッシュコロンビア #バンクーバー島 #ビクトリア #ビーコンヒルパーク #都会の自然 #リス #トウブハイイロリス #真っ黒 #はいひょっこりはん #もぐもぐタイム #芝生 #晩秋 #公園

The saga continues... I went to change the bait in the trap tonight, only to find the sunflower seeds gone, the trap sprung, and no squirrel. Crafty little guys - lol. So this time I smeared peanut butter on the trigger plate, left an apple slice and tied a peanut to the cage. Hopefully this'll do the trick. Can't wait to relocate this squirrel (or squirrels) outside. #suburbanwildlife #nature #squirrel #nest #house #squirrelhouse #wildlife #urbanwildlife #relocating #nature #greysquirrel
A juvenile white bellied sea eagle (so I’m told) attacking grey heron nests situated high in the trees the Chinese and Japanese Gardens in Singapore last August. I managed to get several usable images of this amazing sight last year. This one and the one I posted previously are 2 of my favourites. #singapore #singaporewildlife #wildlife #naturephotography #urbanwildlife #parks #singaporeparks #chineseandjapanesegardens #chineseandjapanesegardenssingapore #japanesegarden #japanesegardensingapore #birds #birdsofinstagram #heron #herons #greyheron #greyherons #birdsofprey #seaeagle #seaeagles #whitebelliedseaeagle #whitebelliedseaeagle
Last year, a dead colugo (not portrayed in this image) was found with a series of scratch marks all over the zinc roof where she laid. Her claws were blunt and her paws were bruised. It was evident that she had attempted to crawl her way back out to the forest after her unintended landing but her efforts were futile and exhaustion was fatal. - A malayan colugo’s claws are an essential feature for a life hanging onto trees. Colugos are strictly arboreal mammals and they are most vulnerable when they are on the ground or on any smooth surfaces. If you see a stranded individual, please call ACRES 24-hour rescue hotline at 9783 7782 for advice.
Gardeners working late tonight at Walgreens.
Spotted a juvenile #baldeagle visiting our neighborhood during lunchtime walkies #suburbanwildlife #urbanwildlife . Enjoy the closeup.
On new years day I went for a hike that ended up being a bit longer than intended. It was mostly overcast and I didn't see much wildlife but I found this flicker sitting in a tree with its feathers puffed up in the cold. If you look closely the little black spots are heart shaped. 💞 ◇ ◇ ◇ ◇ ◇ #natgeo #nationalgeographic #canon #canonphotography #canonusa #sigmaphoto #bird #freakingawesome #weknowidaho #birdsofinstagram #birdnerd #welcometoidaho #flicker #instanature #wild #wildlife #boisebucketlist #natgeoyourshot #northernflicker #photooftheday #outdooridaho #keepitwild #wildlife #wildlifeplanet #boise #urbanwildlife #idaho #hullsgulch #foothills #idahodaily
The highlight of my week has been a couple of sightings of this guy (gal?) on my way home from work. On one occasion sitting on a fence, posing for photos #turkey #urbanwildlife #cityturkey #torontowildlife 📷: @robertsjohnson59

#BatFactFriday trivia time!⠀ 🦇⠀ Q: In what state can you find the largest urban colony in the United States? ⠀ A. California⠀ B. Florida⠀ C. New Mexico⠀ D. Texas⠀ 🦇⠀ 🦇⠀ AND THE ANSWER IS.... D. TEXAS!!!⠀ 🦇⠀ Congress Avenue Bridge, in Austin, TX is home to the largest urban bat colony, not just in the United States, but in the world! This urban roost is a summer home to somewhere between 1.5 and 2 million bats! ⠀ 🦇⠀ Fortunately, Austin has embraced it's batty inhabitants! It is estimated over 100,000 people visit the bridge every year to watch the bats emerge from the bridge, bringing in millions of dollars in tourist revenue. They even host a "BatFest" every year on the bridge with music, food trucks, shops & Austin quirky-ness! ⠀ 🦇 ⠀ Other places with large urban colonies include the University of Florida campus (500,000 bats), Waugh Bridge in Houston (300,000 bats) and Yolo Bypass in California (250,000 bats). And you know what all these places have in common? They are all home to Mexican free-tailed bats! ⠀ 🦇 ⠀ So what makes free-tailed bats so good at living in urban environments (or at least so tolerant)? A recent meta-analysis of urban bat studies (https://buff.ly/2FA16zU) found urban tolerant bats usually were open and edge space foragers with narrow wings. It is thought these characteristics allow bats to deal with issues associated with urban areas, like farther distances to foraging areas. Having a flexible roosting strategy is also important - urban tolerant bats are less picky about where they live! Mexican free-tailed bats (and some other free-tailed bat species) have high aspect ratios, like foraging in high, open space and don't mind roosting in tiny spaces!⠀ 🦇 ⠀ #bats #batfacts #wildlife #austin #keepaustinweird #urbanwildlife #congressavenuebridge #urbanwildlife #bat #skypuppy #freetailedbat #batsofinstagram
This week's installation of Flora Fridays highlights Xerophyllum tenax or common beargrass. It is found in western North America and specifically within Alberta and British Columbia in Canada. It occurs in mountainous habitat containing open woods, dry slopes, and ridges. It is a member of the lily family that typically flowers the year after a fire or every 5-7 years. Native Americans used the leaves to weave baskets and ate the roasted roots. Mountain goats eat the leaves in the winter, but it is generally unpalatable to other wildlife.

I went alcid shopping along the Brooklyn waterfront this afternoon, and this was the first one I found. This young #thickbilledmurre swam by me at warp speed as if it was practicing to be a penguin. Judging by the reports I heard later, this Ryan Lochte of the alcids paddled itself 4 miles over the next couple of hours- not bad for an 18-inch football of feathers. Thick-billed Murres are rare in the region, but there has been a record influx of several species of #alcids to near-coastal waters off the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic over the past month. Perhaps a bad omen, though only time will tell for sure. #nycbirding #urbanbirding #nochasing #birdyourpatch #gravesendbay #bayridge #brooklyn #wildlifephotography #birdsofinstagram #rarebirds #Urialomvia #brooklynbirds #brooklynbirding #alcidshopping #holidayshopping #birdlocal
One of the iconic Sri Lankan pieces of art. The Isurumuni Lovers is a stone carving depicting the age old story of a royal prince giving up everything for the love of a lower cast. While the security around the piece was lax, there was a man stationed within the room full of stone carvings. And even though there was a sign, obtaining photographing permission just required a few head bobs. . Elephant pond carving at Isurumuniya rock temple. It was entertaining to watch folks trying to throw their coins into the small alcove above the carving. . #isurumuniya #isurumunilovers #antiquity #preserveheritage #stonecarving #art #elephantpond #elephant #anuradhapura #kingdom #toque #macaque #monkey #wildlife #urbanwildlife #buddhism #temple  #unesco #worldheritage #sosrilanka #wonderofasia #visitsrilanka #srilanka #critters #travel #solotravel #latergram #lonelyplanet #destination #exploreyourworld
I've been lucky to see these guys very close on my way home late at night, it's a wonderful animal, hated by many but at the same time unknown. #savecoyote #coyotes #wildlifephotography #nightphotography #urbanwildlife #coyotesilverlake #coyotefilm #cinematography #wildlifecinematography
Here’s a buck visiting Laurel Canyon. Thanks for sharing your video Chandra Hipple!

A string of egg sacs waits for spring. The mom was a basilica orbweaver spider, and get this: her species name--lemniscata--means “hanging ribbons.” Perfect. As seen in a holly tree at USN’s outdoor classroom today. 🕸 #urbannature #urbanwildlife #spiders #mecynogealemniscata #orbweaver @usn_pds #usnarboretum #nashvillenature

Canada Geese: part 1 - preparing for flight “Go Go Go” . I’ve always wanted to photograph the morning spectacle of the Canada geese taking off from the water. They usually do this daily just after sunrise. most days I come away disappointed with my images as I’ve set the shutter speed too slow or missed them altogether. This time I quite like this little series I will show of pre-flight, take off and mid flight. I’m liking the subdued winter colours that give an almost retro effect . . . #canadageese #thisislondon #natgeoimagecollection #britishwinter #thisisengland #richmonduponthames #richmondpark #royalparks #takeoff #parklife #wildlondon #urbanwildlife #richmondparkphotography #fujixt2 #fujifeed #britishwildlife @theroyalparks @friendsofrichmondpark #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #lovelondon #earthcapture #wildlifeplanet #fotofantastic_nature #naturelovers #nature_perfection #discoverwildlife #rspb #allabouttheenvironment #fujiphotographer #fujiphotography
Long-tailed duck (Clangula hyemalis), Toronto, Ontario. Long-tailed ducks are small, vocal, Arctic breeding sea duck. In the winter, the can be found in the Great Lakes, the Atlantic coast and in waters in Europe, primarily in the Baltic Sea. How cool is that? . Every day I post an original nature photograph along with some interesting facts about the subject matter.

Egyptian goose pair on #richmond riverside. These geese are actually not geese at all, more closely related to our largest native duck, the Shelduck. They are a non-native species (the clue is in the name) and can be quite aggressive to other waterfowl especially when holding territory. However, they aren’t competing with too many native ducks or geese for nest sites. They nest high up in tree holes or cavities! The goslings jump out of the tree when they hatch. Originally released or escaped from captive wildfowl collections, they are prolific breeders and are spreading rapidly. Could they be as successful as Canada Geese? Will they have detrimental effects on native wildlife and ecosystems? Time will tell! #invasivespecies #nonnative #ecology #ecosystem #richmonduponthames #london #londonwildlife #urbanwildlife #egyptiangoose #bbccountryfile #bbcwildlife #bbcspringwatch
Cada año veo menos mariposas en la ciudad. No solo es la contaminación, sino también el tipo de cuidado que la gente le da a sus plantas y las especies de plantas que siembran en los jardines. . A veces para que no hayan orugas comiéndose las hojas, echan insecticidas, o siembran plantas que no atraen orugas. No les parecería mejor que las orugas se coman las hojas, porque no mataran a la planta, para que luego estas crezcan, florezcan, y los parques y jardines vuelvan a llenarse de colores? . #nature #naturephotography #urbanwildlife #urbanecology #butterfly #caterpillar #wildlife #wildlifephotography #insect #bug #mariposa #flower #flowers #flores
Last August I spotted my very first Peregrine Falcon and it was circling my home town! However I was a little disappointed I never witnessed it make a kill. However, this morning on the train I happened to look up from my work just in time to see a Peregrine Falcon sucker punch a pigeon and carry it off for breakfast! It all happened in the blink of an eye but I couldn’t have asked for a better way to begin my day! Next time you’re in a city/ urban area, keep your eyes peeled for these pigeon killing machines. Nature is never far away. 📸: @bertiegregory Peregrine Falcons are just one of the more fortunate species who have been able to adapt to urban sprawl. Not all species have been able to, for various reasons. Take a moment today to reflect on your decisions and way of living, is there one small thing you could change? #peregrinefalcon #urbanwildlife
Frida seems so content these days, when we meet. She’s just fluffing up into a little comfortable looking ball. #crowfriends #urbanwildlife #crowsofinstagram #crow #krähe #corvid #wildbutfriends
Notwithstanding my obsession with #technology and #gadgets and #proptech I just love when they are combined with a healthy dose of wildlife 🌱🐠🦆

On a cold, grey day several weeks ago, Toronto Wildlife Centre got an exciting visitor: a snowy owl! We love seeing healthy animals out in the wild. This owl sat floating here for several minutes before flying off into the distance. Have you ever gotten a visit from an owl like this? Share your stories below!

Wandering Harbourfront. Enjoy the outdoors before the upcoming temperature drop.
Fishing Cats are one of the few species that have somewhat managed to adapt to human dominated landscapes by being predominantly nocturnal. Despite their adaptability they are still vulnerable to road accidents, traps and snares. Sadly for this Fishing Cat kitten, it’s mother had not been seen for days and upon hearing the distress calls, the locals in the area called up the Pinnawela Zoo, which rescued it. # For guided wildlife holidays to Sri Lanka, visit www.naturalworldexplorer.com or email us to riazc@naturalworldexplorer.com #pinnawelazoo #cute #kitten #catsofinstagram #wildliferescue #fishingcat #cat #wildcat #srilanka #conservation #wildlife #urbanwildlife #naturalworld #srilanka #pinnawelazoo #nature #instatravel #instagram #touroperators #travelagent #travelplanner #contactus #naturalworldexplorer
Esses pontinhos pretos quase imperceptíveis na foto são centenas de estorninhos que pintaram o céu de Roma num fim de tarde de outubro, num fenômeno conhecido como "murmuration", ou balé dos pássaros. Eles ficaram naquela dança por horas, e eu lá assistindo, toda babona. Valeu a pena o torcicolo! . . . . . . . . #tbt #roma #rome #italy #murmuration #starlings #urbanwildlife #birdsofinstagram #instabird #passaros #travelphotography #travelgram #dametraveler #girlswhotravel #amoviajar #mochileras #turistando #viagemeturismo #aroundtheworld #globetrotter #wanderlust #wanderer #essemundoenosso
