Pacific Baza are incredible little raptors.  They are brightly marked, have a pointy crest, and a beautiful yellow eye. 
They sound like little squeaky toys, and they hunt stick insects by crashing into the forest canopy with outstretched wings (stage diving). Unfortunately they provide almost no opportunities for close-up flight shots - and this flyby (taken from the pontoon at Oxley Creek Common a while back) is pretty much the only shot we have from eye-level.

Another bird from my balcony ! I knew that someone new had visited my bird bath the moment I heard this fella sing. . Such a beautiful call ! I took a peak the first day and let it get comfortable with my balcony, the next day I waited for the beautiful bird to arrive again and this was the first shot as soon as it landed on the perch I had set up . . Happy bird... Happy me 😊

Eurasian Oystercatcher

IUCN Red List near threatened species

This is a migratory species over most of its range. The European population breeds mainly in northern Europe, but in winter the birds can be found in north Africa and southern parts of Europe. Although the species is present all year in Ireland, Great Britain and the adjacent European coasts, there is still migratory movement: the large flocks that are found in the estuaries of south-west England in winter mainly breed in northern England or Scotland. Similar movements are shown by the Asian populations. The birds are highly gregarious outside the breeding season.

🇸🇪 Glutsnäppa (rätta mig om jag har fel, snarlik grönbenan tycker jag). Bilden är tagen en sen julikväll i trakterna. Många bollar i luften nu så fotorundorna blir få för tillfället. Gräver lite i valvet istället. 😊 • 🇬🇧 Common greenshank (I think) from a late evening in July this year. Nice to dig through the vault sometimes. Lots of things going on right now so at the moment I’m not able to spend as much time in nature as I have been so far. Luckily I still have a bunch of shots that haven’t been used yet. 😊

El martinet de nit rep el seu nom degut a que, al contrari que la majoria d'ardeids, la seva activitat comença al capvespre.

El martinet de nit (Nycticorax nycticorax) és un ardeid de mida mitjana. S'identifica sense problemes per la seva coloració: cos blanquinós, ales grises, esquena i part superior del cap negre, bec fort i ample de color negre i ulls vermell intens. Destaquen també dues o tres plomes llargues i blanques que surten de la nuca.

This Black-shouldered Kite has been hard at work collecting twigs for nest building. A sure sign that spring is here! 💐🌺🍃🐤✨ #blackshoulderedkite #bird #birding

This summer, I was inundated with baby birds of all kinds at my parents’ home. Jays, cardinals, robins, woodpeckers and several more along with this individual. I was stumped at first as I’ve only seen adult birds of this species but I couldn’t have asked for better views. Side note, is it pronounced toe-he or toe-we? 🌞

In my balcony again 😍 Seemingly tireless, the common tailorbird🐦 hops actively among bushes, hedges and trees in its ceaseless search for tiny insects, its tail cocked high above its back and wagging from side to side.The bird’s weak, erratic flight makes it an easy target for flying predators. 💚💚 #commontailorbird #urbangarden #urbanbirds #pocket_birds #planet_birds #planet_untamed #birds_of_instagram #birds🐦 #bird #bird_brilliance #birdphoto #picoftheday#bestbirdshot #best_birds_of_ig #best_birds_of_india #best_birds_planet #best_birds_of_world #birdphotographersofindia #birdphotographyindia#canonphotography #naturesbeauty #naturephotography#your_best_birds#mybalcony

Black-winged Kite, Onjala, Khomas, Namibia, the bird just caught a lizard. Some minutes later the lizard was gone in one piece. Remarkable red eyes. Gleitaar.

🍁 "La conciencia de los seres humanos sobre el cuidado de la naturaleza juega un papel de gran importancia para la conservación de todas las especies."🌳🍃🌱🍀 ❤️ Cuando anidan suele ocurrir que el macho lleve a la hembra una ramita, semillas, frutas pequeñas o insectos. Las ofrece a su pareja, quien puede o no aceptar el regalo. Si lo rechaza, entonces el macho lo arroja y se aleja🌷

Anida en madrigueras que excavan en barrancos y pueden medir de 60 cm a 4 m de longitud con entrada generalmente bien escondida.

There is so much more tension about our thoughts than we are willing to admit to ourselves - painted bunting. They have all started to arrive for winter and will remain in south Florida until mid May.

Yellow-legged Gull looking out over the Adriatic Sea
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yellow-legged Gulls have a red ring around their eyes and a red gonydeal spot on their bright yellow bills. Their legs (which you can’t see here) are, as their name suggests, yellow. They feed by wading, diving and following fishing boats out to sea and adults are happy to engage in piracy, stealing food from other seabirds after dramatic aerial chases. Yellow-legged Gulls were previously considered to be a type of Herring Gull and have only recently been recognised as a species in their own right.

Female Mute Swan using her bill and feet to rotate her eggs in the nest
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
During the incubation period, the female swan (the pen) will frequently stand up and use her bill and feet to rotate her eggs, this helps to increase contact between her warm body and the surface of the eggs. Hormones cause the pen to lose some of her feathers, she also assists this by pulling out more of her feathers to expose a small patch of bare skin on her breast/underside, known as the brood patch. The exposed soft skin moulds itself around the egg and with increased blood flow to the area, she is able to very effectively warm the eggs that are in direct contact with the brood patch. The pen will change position every half hour, or so, to make sure she heats all the eggs equally.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The thick shell of the egg is strong enough to take the weight of an adult swan and eggs that have been in the nest for a while will have many scratches on their surface resulting from the claws on the adult swan’s webbed feet.
