Flash Of Blue I captured this beautiful bird at Lock and Dam 13 near Iowa. The indigo bunting. This small seed eating bird is in the cardinal family and carries his beauty very well. Darting from tree top to tree top this small bird could definitely go unseen if your not keeping a watchful eye. Enjoy. Shot taken in Fulton, Illinois
To start the next 1000 posts, I obviously have to kick it off with a Hummingbird. Yesterday @muchobirdnerd and I observed two Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, both of which were males, twice during the day we witnessed their mating dance behavior. If a female enters the territory of a males, he will start doing a U shape flight, it will do this sweeping dive up and down in front of the female, it can be quite something to see. If your in the field and happen to see a Ruby-throat doing a weird U flight, he’s courting a female. @audubonsociety

The New Zealand kaka (Maori: kākā), (Nestor meridionalis) is a large species of parrot of the family Nestoridae found in native forests of New Zealand. Two subspecies are recognised. It is endangered and has disappeared from much of its former range.
The Semipalmated Plover can be eaisly overlooked since its feather pattern helps it blend into the varied background of gravel bars along the rivers and ponds that it usually nests upon. ⠀
