A spectacular shot of a north island tīeke (saddleback) by @eiwawar 🌿 Fact from NZ Birds Online: Cavity-roosting and nesting behaviour makes North Island saddlebacks extremely vulnerable to predation by introduced mammals. Therefore, they can only exist at sites where exotic mammalian pests are either completely excluded or are at virtually zero density. Translocation has been essential for the conservation management of North Island saddlebacks. Tag #nzbirds & #nz_birds to be featured! Mod: @hollyneill

The Resplendent Quetzal ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Resplendent Quetzal is a very rare and elusive bird. It took me a long time to find this one nesting in a hollow tree in the cloud forest near San Gerardo de Dota in the Savegre river valley of Costa Rica. This is a male, he has an iridescent green head, wings, back and chest with a vibrant red belly. During the mating season male Quetzals grow twin tail feathers that form an amazing train up to three feet (one metre) in length. You can see his beautiful long green tail poking out of the hole, above his head, as he could not fit his entire tail in the nest! I watched as the male and female took it in turns to find food for their chicks, while the other bird stayed to guard the nest. Although reputed to be the most beautiful bird that exists in the American continents and much loved in Costa Rica, the Resplendent Quetzal is now an endangered species and listed as ‘Near Threatened’. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #resplendentquetzal #quetzal #pharomachrusmocinno #rarebird #rarebirds #beautifulbird #beautifulbirds #birdextreme #birdsoftheworld #planetbirds #birdplanet #wildtropics #wildnature #wildlifephotography #feathered_finds #feather_features #avian #nutsaboutbirds #birdwatching #birdingphotography #birdphotography #birdsphotography #birdsofinstagram #birdsofinsta #birds_of_ig #birdsofcostarica #costaricawildlife #costaricagram #sangerardodedota #costarica at San Gerardo De Dota, Rio Savegre

My most popular image on Instagram is none other than Mr. Ngirungiru (South Island tomtit) and he is April’s image in my 2019 calendar! Order one through the link in my bio 😊🌿 This image is so special to me. I got so lucky that he flew down and landed right in front of me after I said “hello!” to him (how birdnerdy am I?) This shot would never have happened if I hadn’t needed to pee really badly in the middle of the bush and go off track for some privacy before discovering this little dude! Moral of the story is always trust your bladder, because you may just take your best photo on the way to the loo 😂😂

Here at @nz_birds, we thought we’d showcase some of the native birds NZ has lost to extinction. NZ has lost almost half of all our native terrestrial bird species since the arrival of humans in Aotearoa. There were nine different species of Moa in NZ. Featured today is the South Island Giant Moa (dinornis robustus). The following text is from NZ Birds Online: Moa were superlative birds, and the South Island giant moa was the biggest of them all. Adult females stood up to 2 metres high at the back, and could reach foliage up to 3.6 metres off the ground, making them the tallest bird species known. It was one of two species of giant moa, the other being the smaller North Island species, which are placed in a separate family from the two families containing the seven smaller moa species. All nine moa were unique among birds in having no trace of wing bones. DNA study suggests all moa species were more closely related to the flighted South American tinamou than to the New Zealand kiwi. They were the dominant New Zealand land vertebrates, exhibiting far greater adaptive radiation than other New Zealand landbirds. Regrettably, all were extinct within a few centuries of human arrival. @da.mo.jo @hollyneill

Good Evening. The Evening Grosbeak. While normally living north of the border in the Canadian boreal forests and in spruce-fir, pine-oak, pinyon-juniper, and aspen forests of northern North America, these brightly colored beauties make very erratic movements south into the continental United States in some winters. Their movements - along with other winter "finches" (not technically all finches) such as redpolls, Pine siskins, crossbills, Bohemian Waxwings, purple finches, nuthatches, and Pine Grosbeaks - are usually dictated by their food sources up north. Namely berries and conifer seeds. This year is predicted to be a banner year for anyone with black oil sunflower seeds and nyjer feeders, as a southward irruption has already begun. I was lucky enough to check out 6 of them for the first time ever this week at a friend's feeder. If you have a feeder, keep your eyes peeled this winter. It could be a winter of rarities.

There’s nothing common about Common Bronzewings. This one is an adult male, he has a buff colour on his forehead, female Bronzies have dark grey foreheads. They are shy birds, tending to hide and feed in dappled shade on the ground. Photographing them takes patience but their stunning colours and big beautiful eyes are totally worth every effort. . . , . #commonbronzewing #nuts_about_birds #bestbirds #birdsofinstagram #kings_birds #all_mighty_birds #ig_discover_birdslife #your_best_birds #fleeingbirds #best_birds_of_ig #ig_discover_birdslife #birdsofaustralia #eye_spy_birds #sassy_birds #feathered_finds #jj_justbirds #bestbirdshots #pocket_birds #feather_perfection #birdextreme  #anything_feathered #your_best_birds #fridayfowl #perfect_birds #birds_illife #birdfreaks #thetweetsuites #everydaybirdlovers #birdsmagazine #birds_captures #birds_adored #naturyst

Rumpled. The white-rumped sandpiper (Calidris fuscicollis) is easily picked out of a flock of flying peeps by virtue of its...white rump. When strolling along a beach, though, the coverts that give its rump a white appearance are hidden away. It does spend a lot of time in the air, as evidenced by the sandpiper's long wings. In fact, it has among the longest migrations of all of North American birds. Nesting in the high Canadian arctic, many winter at the southern tip of South America, or even further south! These are migrations that take a month or more to complete. at Braddock Bay Park

Form and function. We can guess just by quickly examining this incredible Western Grebe’s features, what it eats, where it choosing to live, and how it hunts. We can go and photograph birds, see them and walk away never asking why, and how. But what would be the fun in that? My challenge to all of us is to go deeper in our observations to that place of connection. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #nikon_photography_ #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #bird_brilliance #birding_lounge #birdsofinstagram #allmightybirds #pocket_birds #eye_spy_birds #feather_perfection #kings_birds #nikonusa #feathered_finds #thetweetsuites #audubonsociety #best_birds_of_ig #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_inspired #wildplanetphotomag #birds_adored #getyourfix #naturyst #birds_captures #planetoutside #best_birds_of_world #winterbirds #birds_private #naturephotography #nature_perfection at Lower Klamath Nat'l Wildlife Refuge

This tōrea pango (variable oystercatcher) are groovy birds that probably go unnoticed a lot of the time! Population levels are approx 6,000 which is preeetty low. If you spot one, take the time to appreciate this awesome endemic bird 😊 at Wellington, New Zealand

This is the best shot I got of a very busy Splendid Fairy Wren this morning. It was quite frustrating as I could hear lots of them in the bushes but only clapped eyes on a couple. Unfortunately they do not stay still for long! at Kogolup Lake

A portrait of the tarāpuka (Black-billed gull) by @edinzphoto 🌿 As Edin says, the tarāpuka is the most endangered gull in the world. It breeds in one of our most threatened ecosystems, braided river beds, and are predated on by stoats. Their nests are also often destroyed by people who drive their 4WDs all over the river beds! They’re much more than just another seagull, they’re native and endangered and deserve our care. Tag #nzbirds & #nz_birds to be featured 🌿 Mod: @hollyneill

Joey and I went to a public park in late afternoon in October to see if any birds would be out before the sun set. As we were walking, we heard the classic low hooting of an owl. Another would answer from farther away. We were able to locate this beauty high up in a pine tree after 45 minutes of following and listening. Nature is its own reward. There is something so so special about being able to find an owl. #birdingtogether #birding #owl #greathornedowl #birdphoto #birdphotography #feathered_finds #your_best_birds #best_birds_of_ig

This juvenile bald eagle was spotted along a roadway feeding on a fresh whitetail carcass with a large number of ravens and a few magpies. I went back the next day to get a couple photos but the site was deserted and the carcass was almost picked clean.

Had an amazing experience on a beach where two juvenile kea were feeding on the flax in flower. Later two adults arrived (the parents) which trigger fascinating changes of behaviour. This is one of the juvies heading for a harakeke flower. The kea is an unusual parrot. It is the only truly alpine parrot in the world, and gained early notoriety among settler farmers for attacks on their sheep. Innately curious, kea are attracted to people wherever they enter its mountain domain, and are a feature at South Island ski-fields and mountain huts. Their attraction to people and their paraphernalia is a two-edged sword, providing both new threats and new opportunities.

Once you’ve been out in this weather, out at sea, you start to crave it. It gets under your skin and life on land feels stifling, suffocating. The only cure is salt spray, southerly winds and soaring seabirds... there is no where I’d rather be. . . . . . #naturefrother #majestic_wildlife_ #wildlifephotography #wildlife_vision #bb_of_ig #your_best_birds #kings_birds #feathered_finds #bns_birds #eye_spy_birds #nature_perfection #naturebrilliance #canonnz #ip_birds #splendid_animals #sassy_birds #ig_discover_birdslife #total_birds #newzealand #kiwipics #docgovtnz #animalelite #wildplanet #capturethewild #nature_sultans #allnatureshots #photoarena_nature #naturyst
