buginmymargarita:

Third times a charm. Three trips to try to find the Norther Pygmy Owl. First couple times came out empty handed which was rather disappointing considering it is such a long drive up the mountain. But the third trip made it all worthwhile. Patience and perseverance paid off.

Despite its small size, the Northern Pygmy Owl is an aggressive hunter, and has been known to capture birds bigger than twice its size

NOPO! 🙂

It’s me!

Something I’ve come to really love about your blog is the limited range of species you choose to photograph. And now you throw in a CATO, and wow! I love that too!

There’s just no escaping my love for your blog. 🙂

January 15, 2020 – Buller’s Shearwater, New Zealand Shearwater, Grey-backed Shearwater, or Rako (Ardenna bulleri)

Found in the temperate Pacific Ocean, these shearwaters breed on the Poor Knights Islands off the North Island of New Zealand. They eat fish, crustaceans, and squid, capturing prey at or near the water’s surface in flight or while swimming. Adults arrive at their breeding colonies in September and chicks leave in May. Pairs dig burrows together under trees or rocks, lining the nests with leaves, twigs, and pebbles. Both parents incubate the single egg and feed the chick. They are classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN because of their small breeding range and face threats from fishing and climate change.

This little guy isn’t really supposed to be here yet. #SavannahNWR is within the breeding range of the least bittern, but not in its winter range. I didn’t notice until processing the photo that this bird seems to have something binding it’s wing. Could be a coincidence, could be why this bird isn’t where it’s supposed to be. #naturephotography #birding #birdwatching #outdoorsphotography

Afternoon stroll and birdwatching

Monday, February 17th, 2020

anonsally:

Today is a national holiday (though Wife still had to work), and it was a beautiful day, so I had resolved to do something outside. I convinced my dad to go for a “nature walk” with me. He didn’t want to go to the foresty regional parks in the hills, though; he pointed out that the birdwatching would be better by the bay. So we went to César Chávez Park, which is built on the site of a former landfill (it was still the dump when I was kid) and took a rather leisurely stroll for about an hour, near the end of which we saw some people flying kites (the kind with strings, not the bird!).

Keep reading

This makes me as happy as if I’d seen the Say’s Phoebe myself.
