“You can’t see me!” Thanks to Karen James, who called us to ask a few questions about juvenile great horned owls, we had the pleasure of observing it for a few hours as it climbed about on this eucalyptus tree!

Red-Tailed Hawk’s iconic call... The fierce, screaming cry of the red-tailed hawk is frequently used as a generic raptor sound effect in television shows and other media, even if the bird featured is not a red-tailed hawk. It is especially used in depictions of the bald eagle. ____________________________________ #redtailedhawk #elite_raptors #birdsofprey #raw_birds #bird_brilliance #feather_perfection #lifeasart #nikonbirds #nikonphotography #nikonwildlife #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #bird_captures #bird_extreme #birdextremefeatures #birds_adored #yourbestbirds #bestbirdshots #yourshotphotographer #birdsinflight #raptorsofinstagram #wildlifephotography #natgeohub

Traro / Southern Caracara / Caracara plancus Habita desde Arica a Cabo de Hornos. Es un ave rapaz pero principalmente carroñera. La protuberancia en su pecho indica que se buche está lleno. El buche en las aves es una bolsa en su aparato digestivo donde almacena comida para humedecerla, ablandarla y luego ser digerida. #aveschilenas #avesdechile #chilepajaristico #birdphotography #birdsofinstagram #birdwatchingchile #aves #birds #birdwatching #birding #birdlife #elit_raptors #avesrapacesdechile #avesrapaces #avesrapaceschile #elite_raptors

Captured these two cuties ( Great Horned Owl Chicks ) watching me..... watching them. Did you know: Armadillos are bulletproof. The hard shell of an armadillo is stronger than you might realize. There are multiple reports of people in Texas trying to shoot the animals, only to have the bullet ricochet off and injure the shooter. . . . . . . . . . . . . #elite_worldwide_birds #elite_raptors #elite_owls #elite_birds #total_birds #bns_birds #ig_birdwatchers #ig_captures #ip_birds #moody_nature #birds_of_ig #bird_brilliance #bird_illife #birdwatchers #bird_watchers_daily #bird_watching #birdlife_insta #birdloversdaily #birdlovers #birdloversofinstagram #eye_spy_birds #nuts_about_birds #photonaturelover #master_shotz #marvelous_shots

This weekend I had what is likely my craziest day of wildlife viewing ever. I was visiting my friend @mcgosselin cabin, and we decided to head out for an evening ride. Heading into the mountains, we drove by a wet bog, and I caught sight of a shape perched along the edge. It ended up being a beautiful adult male Great Gray Owl. The bird ended up being one of three we would see ‪this evening‬. I was pretty satisfied with such an excellent encounter with an elusive bird, but the highlight of the evening was too quick for my camera. We had just come off the mountain and encountered a large shape in the middle of the road. At first, I couldn't make out what it was, but as the animal ran a massive tail raised into the air and we realized it was a mountain lion! Even more surprising was a second cat joining the first as they ran off into the forest. Needless to say that expectations are going to be pretty high when I head out again! * * * * #wildlife #wildlifephotography #seewildlife #sharenatgeo #whererockies #marvelous_animals #bb_of_ig #thegreatwild #ethicalowlphotos #elite_raptors #canadianwildlife #wildlifeseekers #bestnatureshots @wildlifeplanet #earthcapture #ig_captures #exclusive_animals #animalelite #allnatureshots @montanafwp @bbcearth #earthcapture #natureperfection #canon_official   #audobonsociety #natgeoyourshot #elite_owls

It doesn't get much better than this. Taken on my first morning out after self isolation restrictions and I came upon this Black-shouldered Kite that was settling in for the hunt. I'd been observing it for around 20 minutes which included two unsuccessful attempts to catch a meal. It was successful on its 3rd attempt which I've posted photos of but this is point where I knew it was aware of me. Love the eye contact. #blackshoulderedkite #raptor #birdofprey #bird #birding #birdphotography #birdsofaustralia #birdsofinstagram #featheredfriends #kings_birds #pocket_birds #ig_discover_birdslife #ig_birds #ig_bird_shots #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #eye_spy_birds #best_bird_shots #birds_adored #birds_perfection #birdingkeepsmesane #birds_captures #birdlifeoz #feather_perfection #bird_brilliance #naturyst #raw_birds #abcmyphoto #elite_raptors #reopenthepoofarm

Do you see the youngest Australian Bush Stone Curlew (Burhunus grallarius) in this picture? If it were not for the fact that I come back to this spot every couple of days to see the growth progress of this youngest member of the flock, I would not have found it. May be I would have spotted its parents but not it. Today, at first glance, I thought it was dead. It did not even move a feather the entire time, even when I came within a meter of it. Its parents are used to my presence now, they do not even hiss to let me know that they are there when I am around except when I stood up, probably to let me know not to trample on them accidentally as they were not going to move in any circumstances. It is interesting that those of us who photograph wildlife regularly appear, that our subjects appear to form a bond with our us even as they remained true to their wild nature. . . . . . . . . . #nuts_about_birds #best_birds_of_ig #feather_perfection #perfect_birds #bestbirdshots #raw_bird #bird_brilliance #capturebirds #birds_captures #birds_adored ... #eye_spy_birds #your_best_birds #birdselite #birds_iLLife #birds_perfection #elite_raptors #birdphotography #birder #birdstagram #backyardbirds ... #whatweliked #wildlifephotography #birdsofaustralia #australianbirds #instabirds #birdlovers #nationalgeographic #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #ourplanetdaily

I love introducing unique wildlife ... here is the American Turkey Vulture (Cathartes Aura) who lives and breeds in South America but travels as far north as the northern borders of the US during the austral winters. Do you know why their heads are bare? Some may think them ugly but they are practical. Since they are carrion feeders, no feathers means that they can keep their head clean from bacteria infection. Their stomach have acids of such high concentration that all bacteria ingested are destroyed instantly. They also urinate on their legs all the times to keep them infection free. A group of vultures feeding is called a wake of vultures and when they are soaring in the sky on thernals in a flock, they are a kettle. They do not have voice box so they are not able to make nice music unlike other birds, so they communciate with a series of grunts, hisses and bill cracks. Now that we understand the practicality of the way they dress, do you still think they are ugly? I found this one during a breakday on a worktrip to Chile last year at a fishermen market, cleaning up after the fishermen. Barehead for birds are the uniform of nature's sanitation workers. Vultures suffer from poisoning, may be because they are not pretty .. but if nature's sanitation workers were completely removed, imagine how much of our own waste we would be standing in. . . . . . . . . #nuts_about_birds #best_birds_of_ig #feather_perfection #perfect_birds #bestbirdshots #raw_bird #bird_brilliance #capturebirds #birds_captures #birds_adored ... #eye_spy_birds #your_best_birds #birdselite #birds_iLLife #birds_perfection #elite_raptors #birdphotography #birder #birdstagram #backyardbirds ... #whatweliked #wildlifephotography #birdsofaustralia #australianbirds #instabirds #birdlovers #nationalgeographic #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #ourplanetdaily

This is probably the best portrait you will see of an Australian white ibis (Threskiornis molucca). Why do I say that? Well, these regal birds have been dubbed the bin chicken because it was always foraging for bits in bins - usually bits of junk human food which is even worse than just normal food for human which is also already junk food for these poor birds. Their feathers and skin never look this good when they are on that diet. This was taken just before picnics were allowed again after Covid-19 lockdown. Look at the beautiful feathers and skin. Its sister specie in Africa is known as the Sacred Ibis (how far from bin chicken can one get?), from its association with the Ancient Egyptian God, Thoth. Many signs in parks often say : Don't feed the wildlife. I constantly see parents giving bread to kids to feed the wildlife. Please DON'T. To share with your children the love for wildlife, please give them wildlife appropriate food - may be seeds, may be fruits and may be even pet pellets if you do not want to handle seafood bits or worms and the like. A whole new generation had matured during the Covid 19 that is not used to human scraps that may get sick now from eating human junk food 🙁 Bread in lakes/ponds also breed algae which are destructive to other species of wildlife that live in the waters of these watery bodies. Biodiversity, like the war against Covid 19 requires the collaboration of one and all! . . . . . . . . . #nuts_about_birds #best_birds_of_ig #feather_perfection #perfect_birds #bestbirdshots #raw_bird #bird_brilliance #capturebirds #birds_captures #birds_adored ... #eye_spy_birds #your_best_birds #birdselite #birds_iLLife #birds_perfection #elite_raptors #birdphotography #birder #birdstagram #backyardbirds ... #whatweliked #wildlifephotography #birdsofaustralia #australianbirds #instabirds #birdlovers #nationalgeographic #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #ourplanetdaily

Continuing with what does biodiversity looks like .. these two feathered friends are both Burhinus. On the left is the African cousin, spotted thick-knee (Burhinus capensis) also known as the spotted dikkop or Cape thick-knee and native to Africa. On the right is the Australian cousin, the bush stone-curlew or bush thick-knee (Burhinus grallarius), native to Australia. Both are nocturnal and like similar environments and eat similar diets of small herpes - lizards, frogs, etc. Their feather patterns are distinctly different though to adapt to their environment. The Cape thick knee I found in Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa and the right at the Brisbane City Botanical Gardens. . . . . . . . . #nuts_about_birds #best_birds_of_ig #feather_perfection #perfect_birds #bestbirdshots #raw_bird #bird_brilliance #capturebirds #birds_captures #birds_adored ... #eye_spy_birds #your_best_birds #birdselite #birds_iLLife #birds_perfection #elite_raptors #birdphotography #birder #birdstagram #backyardbirds ... #whatweliked #wildlifephotography #birdsofaustralia #australianbirds #instabirds #birdlovers #nationalgeographic #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #ourplanetdaily

On the same day, a lone straw necked ibis (straw-necked ibis (Threskiornis spinicollis) was seen foraging in the furthest field of Oxley Commons. I love the wiwaher feathers pick up the sunlight, making her almost animatronic! This regal young lady has an Elizabethan like collar in her ensemble. We know she is a lady because her chest is dark whereas his would have been white and we know she is young because her legs are black although the top of her left one is beginning to turn pink. Unlike their urban cousins, the white ibis, straw necked ibis only visit the urban areas. Farmers love them as they feed on locusts, grasshoppers, grubs and yabbies. . . . . . . . . #nuts_about_birds #best_birds_of_ig #feather_perfection #perfect_birds #bestbirdshots #raw_bird #bird_brilliance #capturebirds #birds_captures #birds_adored ... #eye_spy_birds #your_best_birds #birdselite #birds_iLLife #birds_perfection #elite_raptors #birdphotography #birder #birdstagram #backyardbirds ... #whatweliked #wildlifephotography #birdsofaustralia #australianbirds #instabirds #birdlovers #nationalgeographic #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #ourplanetdaily

Australian pelican (Pelecanus conspicillatus) at its cutest - yawning and shaking sleep, captured this afternoon at Oxley Commons where I also made some new friends. There are only 8 species of pelicans in the world. When does IUCN, the regulatory body that decides whether a specie is threatened or endangered consider a specie to be threatened? Some species of pelicans are nearly threatened. That means that they are losing 20-29% of its habitat but the number of that specie have not fallen below 10,000. How strong can a gene pool of a specie be when there area only 10,000 left? How many of those are related? Biodiversity Conservation require each and every one of us to help preserve the biodiversity in our own backyard. That way, there is greater variety in gene pool and with that greater strength. With that, there is also hope that the numbers will never fall as low as 10,000. . . . . . . . #nuts_about_birds #best_birds_of_ig #feather_perfection #perfect_birds #bestbirdshots #raw_bird #bird_brilliance #capturebirds #birds_captures #birds_adored ... #eye_spy_birds #your_best_birds #birdselite #birds_iLLife #birds_perfection #elite_raptors #birdphotography #birder #birdstagram #backyardbirds ... #whatweliked #wildlifephotography #birdsofaustralia #australianbirds #instabirds #birdlovers #nationalgeographic #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #ourplanetdaily

What does diversity looks like? These are all kingfishers that i have previously posted. On the left, the (1) Australian sacred kingfisher (Todiramphus sanctus). Top right is the (2) Indian Stork-Billed Kingfisher (Pelargopsis capensis). Bottom right is the (3) African brown hooded kingfisher (Halcyon albiventris). (1) and (3) are about the same size and eat the similar things but on different continents and live in woodlands. (2) is large and have been known to chase away eagles and other big birds of prey; it also live in urban settings. The first I took in the Stamford area outside Brisbane, Australia; the second in the ancient palace grounds of Agra, India and the third at a lodge in Limpopo, South Africa. There are 120 species of kingfishers in the world, with most of them located in Australia, Asia and Africa. Which of these is the most important? Which should we preserve? When should preparation efforts start? If we are not aware of their presence, can we preserve them? . . . . . . . . #nuts_about_birds #best_birds_of_ig #feather_perfection #perfect_birds #bestbirdshots #raw_bird #bird_brilliance #capturebirds #birds_captures #birds_adored ... #eye_spy_birds #your_best_birds #birdselite #birds_iLLife #birds_perfection #elite_raptors #birdphotography #birder #birdstagram #backyardbirds ... #whatweliked #wildlifephotography #birdsofaustralia #australianbirds #instabirds #birdlovers #nationalgeographic #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #ourplanetdaily

It has been colder than usual yhis northern spring and until recently a rather warm austral fall here doen south. Probably the last flock of godwits (limosa lapponica) to leave our foreshore or an entire flock of non breeding juveniles. We will never see them in their magnificient breeding plumage here in the south as they breed only in Alaska and Siberia. Godwits are amazing flyers. No that big in size but totally powerful, they can complete the migration between Australia and Siberia, a distance of 17,000 km in just 8 days, flying at 50km/hr non stop. They may not as big or visually spectacular like the wilderbeest migration in Africa but theur migratory journey is no less spectacular. Those slightly upturned bills are also super flexible, enabling the bird to dig and capture molluscs very effectively. . . . . . . . . #nuts_about_birds #best_birds_of_ig #feather_perfection #perfect_birds #bestbirdshots #raw_bird #bird_brilliance #capturebirds #birds_captures #birds_adored ... #eye_spy_birds #your_best_birds #birdselite #birds_iLLife #birds_perfection #elite_raptors #birdphotography #birder #birdstagram #backyardbirds ... #whatweliked #wildlifephotography #birdsofaustralia #australianbirds #instabirds #birdlovers #nationalgeographic #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #ourplanetdaily

It is the season for migratory birds to start leaving the south to head for the north ... First time I have seen so many oyster catchers hanging out on the Wynnum Foreshore. I had often come here to see the migratory birds but usually the dogs that are pets have been chasing after them as they sloshed through the mud. With the stay in period imposed because of Covid-19, the birds have returned. And a flock of them flew from one spot to the another along the long foreshore. I took aim with my long lens and was pleasantly surprised at the outcome ... . . . . . . . . . #nuts_about_birds #best_birds_of_ig #feather_perfection #perfect_birds #bestbirdshots #raw_bird #bird_brilliance #capturebirds #birds_captures #birds_adored ... #eye_spy_birds #your_best_birds #birdselite #birds_iLLife #birds_perfection #elite_raptors #birdphotography #birder #birdstagram #backyardbirds ... #whatweliked #wildlifephotography #birdsofaustralia #australianbirds #instabirds #birdlovers #nationalgeographic #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #ourplanetdaily

I went to check on my feathered family yesterday as so many people were up and about to see how that little piece of shag carpet is doing. I love it when wildlife gets so used to you hanging around them, that they ignored you when you approached them. I have been visiting these bush stone curlews (Burhinus grallarius) since not long after this little one hatched. Its parents watched my movement but do not even hiss anymore. One of them does not even bother to get up .. ever .. I was able to get within 1m without any response. I usually check before I approach wildlife too closely .. and usually very slowly and with lots of pauses to let them know that I am no threat to them. Portrait of a happy family. I would not advise anyone to go that close as I have seen them chase a small dog walking by on leash all the way down Main Street with its owners looking between confused and terrified. . . . . . . . . #nuts_about_birds #best_birds_of_ig #feather_perfection #perfect_birds #bestbirdshots #raw_bird #bird_brilliance #capturebirds #birds_captures #birds_adored ... #eye_spy_birds #your_best_birds #birdselite #birds_iLLife #birds_perfection #elite_raptors #birdphotography #birder #birdstagram #backyardbirds ... #whatweliked #wildlifephotography #birdsofaustralia #australianbirds #instabirds #birdlovers #nationalgeographic #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #ourplanetdaily
