The grey heron ability to stand still for long periods at a time, occasionally stretching its neck to get a better view, but with no obvious purpose other than for time to pass, is impressive. Is this what passes for resting in the world of herons? Can birds get bored, I wonder, or is boredom a human invention? .

From a distance, just a 'brown jobbie'. But up close, I think the sparrows are not boring. Not flashy or flamboyant, just simple colors and textures that blend with their habitat. 
This one is a Savannah Sparrow enjoying plentiful seeds on a family farm in Habersham County GA. @savannahalexanderr

Ohio has had a very special visitor for the past few weeks, and this past weekend I finally got to see him. Rufous Hummingbirds travel nearly 4,000 miles from breeding grounds in Alaska and northwest Canada to wintering sites in Mexico. This was all made possible by the kindness of a stranger who opened her yard to visitors, and rigged up lights to keep his food from freezing. 11.9.19.

Speaking of pipit's here's a recent shot of an American Pipit at Ellis Creek, Petaluma, California (Nov. 2019). Also called Buff-bellied Pipit, compared to its slightly larger Tawny Pipit cousin that I saw in Turkey in September, this bird is about .5 inch shorter in length, but at around .74 oz, it appears considerably more slender. Did you know that pipits can be found on every continent except Antarctica? What species do you see in your area? We only see our American Pipits here in California in winter. They nest in tundra in the far North, or at high elevations  above timberline in the South. Wintering pipits use open areas for foraging and I most often see them in fields near water. Kind of a drab bird that also blends in well with its surroundings. Fun to watch run around and duck for cover in tall grass areas. I'd love to hear about pipits in your area! Let me know :) and another day, another bird!  #aves #bb_of_ig #bestbirdshots #bird_brilliance #birds_adored #birds_captures #nature_worldwide_birds #nuts_about_birds #ptk_birds_animals #raw_birds #total_birds #your_best_birds  #野鳥 #eye_spy_birds #birds_private #kings_birds #best_birds_planet #9vaga_birds9  #best_birds_of_world  #sassy_birds  #birdsandblooms #splendid_birds #eye_for_earth #birds_perfection  #birds_photography_official #naturyst #audubonsociety #loversofwildlife #planetbirds #best_birds_planet

When I heard a couple of hoots at 4:50 in the evening I thought to myself how odd to hear the neighborhood Great Horned Owls at that time of day. The sun was just about to set and there was still a lot of light out.  Thank goodness I listened to my instinct to  go outside to my backyard. I was in shock to find this beautiful owl perched on a branch in a near by tree. I hear Great Horned Owls practically every night and I’ve also seen them perched in nearby trees but until now I’ve been unsuccessful in photographing them because it’s usually too dark or they’re hidden amongst the branches. So I was super duper excited when I was able to take a few shots of this owl perfectly perched while bathing in the setting sunlight!🦉(it looks like this beauty had just eaten something)

Lesser Spotted Eagle (Clanga pomarina)
Kruger National Park, South Africa 🇿🇦
.
Looking through some of my photos I took way back in January 2016, I came across this raptor. At the time I would of not realised it was a Lesser Spotted Eagle, and probably thought it was another Wahlberg's Eagle. However the pale eye, stove pipe tarsi, and lack of crest now get me to the correct id. The Lesser Spotted Eagle is a summer migrant to the North Eastern regions of South Africa, and is often associated with breeding colonies of Red-billed Queleas (One of their preferred meals).

Northern Harriers

Bosque del Apache,
New Mexico, U.S.A.

Bosque del Apache in New
Mexico is a managed nature 
reserve for the Rocky Mountain
Sandhill Cranes.  It is a combination
of wetlands, open fields for field corn, 
and New Mexico scrub vegetation.  Thousands of cranes and Snow Geese winter here.  The environment is also perfect for the Northern Harriers
featured here.  Harriers love marshes but they also love open fields where they can course low to hunt where they use sight and hearing to detect their rodent prey.  The birds shown here are either adult females or juveniles of both sexes.  We have yet to photograph an
adult male, the elusive "grey ghost".#northernharrier #harrier #bosquedelapache #private_birds #natgeoyourshot #elite_birds #elite_raptors #elite_worldwide_birds #eye_spy_birds #birdfreaks #bb_of_ig #birds_of_ig #birds_matter #bird_brilliance #birdwatching #raptors_only #nuts_about_birds #birds_of_prey #thetweetsuites #eye_spy_birds #wildbirds #wildbirdtrust #birdfreaks #wildbirdphotography #birdwatching  #birds.lover.page #smallbirdsofinstagram #raptors_only #wildbirdphotography #your_best_birds #sassy_birds #best_birds_of_ig #best_birds_of_world #birds_captures #birdphotography

American Kestrel.⁠
⁠
They're one of the more colorful raptors and is the smallest falcon found in North America. They'll usually scan for prey while perched or change perches every few minutes. This one kept changing perches and I had to chase after it until I could get a decent close up. They primarily eat insects, small rodents and small birds.⁠

American Kestrel.⁠ ⁠ They're one of the more colorful raptors and is the smallest falcon found in North America. They'll usually scan for prey while perched or change perches every few minutes. This one kept changing perches and I had to chase after it until I could get a decent close up. They primarily eat insects, small rodents and small birds.⁠ ⁠ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠ ⁠ #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #bb_of_ig #kings_birds #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #bns_birds #feather_perfection #birds_adored #thebirdingsquad #nature_sultans #birds_illife #sassy_birds #birds_captures #nature_worldwide_birds #ip_birds #total_birds #birdsofinstagram #animal_captures #animals_in_world #splendid_animals #ig_naturelovers #animal_fanatics #wildlifephotography #wildlifephoto #wildlifelovers #earthfocus #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth
Always expect the unexpected!! It’s always a happy surprise when new birds fly into a usual spot causing quite a bit of excitement! I’ve been Avocets in the summer in their breeding plumage on the islands - I’ve never seen them in their non breeding plumage - so a new sight for me! These are very shy birds who stay away from people - they chose to rest on a busy beach which wasn’t the best choice as everything from dogs, children and skim boards made them fly back and forth and I was able to get a few flight shots in! Have a wonderful week - for my US friends - stay warm I hear it’s going to be cold! ❄️ 🐧 In response to predators, they sometimes issues a series of call notes that gradually changes pitch, simulating the Doppler effect and thus making its approach seem faster than it actually is.
🐧Nesting American Avocets aggressively attack predators, sometimes physically striking Northern Harriers and Common Ravens.
🐧Their chicks leave the nest within 24 hours after hatching. Day-old avocets can walk, swim, and even dive to escape predators.
🐧Their nests are depressions on the sand or platforms of grass on mudflats. Should the water level rise, the breeding pair will raise the nest up to a foot or more with sticks, weeds, bones and feathers to keep the eggs above water.
🐧 The most distinctive feature on the body of avocet is its long, upward curled beak.
🐧Males have slightly longer beaks than females.
🐧Unusual beak is specific adaptation to the life in swampy areas. When searching for food, avocet relies on the eyesight. As soon as the prey is located, avocet will sweep its long beak through the water to grab it.
🐧Besides the beak, avocets have webbed feet and very long, slender legs which facilitate walking through the shallow water.
