The red wattlebird #redwattlebird is a passerine bird native to southern Australia. At 33‚Äď37 cm in length, it is the second largest species of Australian honeyeater. The species is found in southeast¬†Queensland,¬†New South Wales,¬†Victoria,¬†South Australia¬†and southwest¬†Western Australia¬†in open forest and woodland, and is a common visitor to urban gardens and parks. Loud and conspicuous, the red wattlebird is generally found in trees, where it gets most of its food; occasionally it forages on the ground. It is one of the largest¬†nectarivorous¬†birds in the world, feeding from a wide variety of flowering plants. Insects also comprise part of its diet. It is territorial and at times aggressive to birds of other species, often defending rich sources of nectar. -¬†Wikipedia

‚ÄúOne day a hummingbird flew in‚ÄĒ
It fluttered against the window til I got it down where I could reach it with an open umbrella‚ÄĒ
‚ÄĒWhen I had it in my hand it was so small I couldn't believe I had it‚ÄĒbut I could feel the intense life‚ÄĒso intense and so tiny‚ÄĒ
...You were like the humming bird to me...And I am rather inclined to feel that you and I know the best part of one another without spending much time together‚ÄĒ
‚ÄĒIt is not that I fear the knowing‚ÄĒ
It is that I am at this moment willing to let you be what you are to me‚ÄĒit is beautiful and pure and very intensely alive.‚ÄĚ

Photo by @bypildo "Common Moorhen Fledglings"...
The common moorhen #commonmoorhen is a bird species in the family Rallidae. It is distributed across many parts of the Old World. The common moorhen lives around well-vegetated marshes, ponds, canals and other wetlands.¬†The birds are territorial during breeding season. The nest is a basket built on the ground in dense vegetation. Laying starts in spring, between mid-March and mid-May in Northern hemisphere temperate regions. About 8 eggs are usually laid per female early in the season; a brood later in the year usually has only 5‚Äď8 or fewer eggs. Nests may be re-used by different females. Incubation lasts about three weeks. Both parents¬†incubate¬†and feed the young. These fledge after 40‚Äď50 days, become independent usually a few weeks thereafter, and may raise their first brood the next spring. When threatened, the young may cling to the parents' body, after which the adult birds fly away to safety, carrying their offspring with them.-Wikipedia

I have a bunch of bird feeders in my backyard. As of late, ive turned into a bit of a bird fanatic. Sometimes though, as I sit and stare out my window at the sparrows playing in the garden, I get just a little scared to go outside. I have this vision of like 150 sparrows and chickadees getting angry I didnt fill their feeder and carrying me away.... ūüė≥

‚ÄĘWhite-Winged Crossbill‚ÄĘ
This bird has been found breeding in all 12 months, whenever food is sufficient the female can form eggs and raise her young, they eat conifer seeds, lucky for me the trees are packed with them this year so I got to see quite a few in Banff right in the campground! The only problem is that they are so active and love sitting at the tops of trees, so I had an incredibly difficult time getting a good photo! #naturephotography #bird_brilliance #bestbirdphotos #bestbirdshots #backyardbirds #birdsofcanada #birdsofinstagram #birdsofwesterncanada #picoftheday #instadaily #instagood #backyardbirds #alberta #best_of_birds_ig #bird_brilliance #bestbirdshots #bestbirdsdaily #nofilter #ntc_feature #ntc_wild #bestbirdphotos

The chukar partridge #chukar or simply chukar, also called Chukor, is a Eurasian upland gamebird in the pheasant family Phasianidae. It has been considered to form a superspecies complex along with the rock partridge, Philby's partridge and Przevalski's partridge and treated in the past as conspecific particularly with the first. This partridge has well marked black and white bars on the flanks and a black band running from the forehead across the eye and running down the head to form a necklace that encloses a white throat. The species has been introduced into many other places and feral populations have established themselves in parts of North America and New Zealand. This bird can be found in parts of Middle East and South Asia. - Wikipedia

You never know what you might see strolling along Colwood‚Äôs Esquimalt Lagoon. It‚Äôs one of seven Migratory Bird Sanctuaries in British Columbia and an important stopover for birds journeying between North and South America. Great capture @ianterrisphotography! Can anyone of our followers name this beautiful wading bird hunting for food? Hint: it‚Äôs the largest of its species in North America & often confused with a crane. ūü§Ē

He’s all shook up! We had the pleasure of watching a sedge of herons fishing at low tide on Vancouver Island. This area is home to about 50 breeding pairs out of about 1500 individuals of the fannini subspecies. #ardeaherodeusfannini #greatblueheron #vancouverisland #bcbirds #tidalpools

I loved this quote about the Evening Grosbeak‚Äôs song - ‚Äúthe male sometimes selects a lofty pine branch, and there attempts a song; but it is a miserable failure, and he seems conscious of it, for he frequently pauses and looks discontented‚ÄĚ

Photo by @nikeambari "Cockatiel"....
The cockatiel #cockatiel (Nymphicus hollandicus #nymphicushollandicus ), is a bird that is a member of the cockatoo family endemic to Australia. They are prized as household pets and companion parrots throughout the world and are relatively easy to breed. As a caged bird, cockatiels are second in popularity only to the budgerigar. The cockatiel is the only member of the genus Nymphicus. It was previously considered a crested parrot or small cockatoo; however, more recent molecular studies have assigned it to its own subfamily, Nymphicinae. It is, therefore, now classified as the smallest of the Cacatuidae(cockatoo family). .
Conservation status: Least Concern

Downy Woodpecker | Pic mineur | Dunenspecht | Picoides pubescens: I don't normally feature photos of birds at feeders, but I'll make an exception today. This image was shot yesterday at the bird feeding station set up at Maplewood Flats. I took it just before the start of the opening reception of Wild Bird Trust of British Columbia's 25th Anniversary Photo Exhibition.

Taken at Maplewood Flats Conservation Area, North Vancouver (British Columbia), Canada on August 11, 2018, with a handheld Nikon D7200 and AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR (ISO 2200 | 360mm | -1 ev | f/5.6 | 1/1000), cropped - 69% of full. Wild, as shot; not baited, called in or set up.

Hot out of the camera...
I’m no @michellevalbergphotography, but like Michelle, I can’t spend enough time around loons (insert joke here). For almost two months @katlokk and I have observed and photographed a young loon family on Ontario’s #MississippiRiver. Sadly, only one of the two chicks appears to have survived. In this image captured last night at sunset, the eight-week-old surviving chick gives its wings a stretch and a shake, shedding young downy feathers to make room for the iconic black and white adult plumage.

The white-plumed honeyeater #whiteplumedhoneyeater (Ptilotula penicillata #ptilotulapenicillata , formerly Lichenostomus penicillatus #lichenostomuspenicillatus ) is a small passerine bird endemic to Australia. White-plumed honeyeaters are common around water and are often seen in backyards and suburbs with vegetation cover. The plumagedoes not differ between sexes. The distinguishing characteristic is a conspicuous white plume across the neck from the throat to the edge of the nape. The top of head and neck are olive, with a yellow eye-ring surrounding a black-brown to olive-brown eye. Cheeks and ear coverts are yellow-olive, with the rear coverts tipped black, creating a short black stripe along the anterior edge of the neck plume. The chin and throat are dull yellowish-olive. - Wikipedia

Mew Gull | Goéland cendré | Sturmmöwe | Larus canus brachyrhynchus: This photo was taken some months ago on a beach close to Stanley Park in difficult lighting. But it was one of the few times I got so close to a Mew Gull, so I figured I would post it nonetheless!

Taken December 20, 2017 on English Bay beach in Vancouver (British Columbia), Canada with a handheld Nikon D7200 and AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR (ISO 200 | 500mm | -0.67 ev | f/5.6 | 1/1600), cropped - 68% of original. Wild, as shot; not baited, called in or set up.

Photo by @talitha_photography_ "Australian Magpie"..
The Australian magpie #australianmagpie (Gymnorhina tibicen #gymnorhinatibicen ) is a medium-sized black and white passerinebird native to Australia and southern New Guinea. Although once considered to be three separate species, it is now considered to be one, with nine recognised subspecies. A member of the Artamidae, the Australian magpie is placed in its own genus Gymnorhina and is most closely related to the black butcherbird (Melloria quoyi). It is not, however, closely related to the European magpie, which is a corvid. Over 1000 Australian magpies were introduced into New Zealand from 1864 to 1874 but have subsequently been accused of displacing native birds and are now treated as a pest species. These magpies may engage in an escalating series of behaviours to drive off intruders. Least threatening are alarm calls and distant swoops, where birds fly within several metres from behind and perch nearby. Next in intensity are close swoops, where a magpie will swoop in from behind or the side and audibly "snap" their beaks or even peck or bite at the face, neck, ears or eyes.- Wikipedia.

Thank you Wild Bird Trust of British Columbia for choosing my work to be displayed at their 25th Anniversary Photo Exhibition, at Corrigan Nature House in the Maplewood Flats Conservation Area (North Vancouver) - aka @maplewoodflats.

What I've seen of the other photographers' work is quite impressive, so I would encourage everyone to swing around to take a look. As it ends up, I will be able to attend this event... See you all at Maplewood tomorrow, starting at 10am for a nature walk led by the incomparable Al Grass!

I took this photo of a beautiful and locally rare Rock Wren at Maplewood in September 2016. It was one of my bird photography highlights as I was able to observe this bird busily feeding among the ocean rocks for 45 minutes!

Portrait of a spruce grouse. I followed this bird through the forest until it hopped up on a fallen tree in a patch of sunlight, finally giving me enough light to get the photograph I wanted. Because they rely so heavily on camoflauge to evade predation, they usually let people get close before taking flight into the trees. As a result, they’ve been nicknamed the fools hen. This spruce grouse was photographed near Watson Lake on our last day in the Yukon Territory.
