The survival and recovery of wood duck populations in North America are renowned wildlife success stories. By the late 1800s to early 1900s, extinction of the wood duck seemed imminent. Sentiments like, "Becoming scarce, likely to be exterminated," and "Almost exterminated, only few breed" reverberated among ornithologists in eastern portions of the continent. Destruction of bottomland hardwood forests—the bird's primary breeding and wintering habitat—and market hunting were the two major factors that contributed to the species' decline. Because of their extensive breeding ranges in eastern North America, where most people lived in the early 20th century, wood ducks were probably the most hunted waterfowl species prior to 1918. Wood ducks were hunted from September to April. In 1918, however, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act prohibited the hunting of wood ducks nationwide. Wood duck populations recovered, and seasons were reopened in 1941. Fortunately, some lowland habitats composed of impenetrable vegetation and subject to prolonged flooding withstood man's environmental barrage, providing safe havens for wood ducks in parts of their range. These areas provided the remaining wood duck population that eventually expanded into its current range in North America. Wood Duck rates an 8 out of 20 on the Continental Concern Score, and is not on the 2016 State of North America's Birds' Watch List. Their Current population is estimated to be approximately 3.5 million.. . . . . . . . . #birdsofinstagram #birds_adored #birds_captures #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #bbcearth #birds_private #hummingbird #annashummingbird #best_birds_of_ig #best_birds_of_world #bestshotz_birds #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #nature_brilliance #kings_birds #eye_spy_birds #wildlife #climatechange #savetheplanet #bb_of_ig #sonyalpha @bestshotz_birds @nuts_about_birds @auduboninstitute @audubonsociety @naturein_focus @bbcearth @natgeoyourshot @featured_wildlife @conservationnw @nationalparkservice @iucn_wcel @thewcs @sierraclub @nationalwildlife @sonyalpha @discovery

Here’s another photo of one of the lovely ruru (or Morepork - Ninox Novaeseelandiae ) I saw in @visit_zealandia recently. They are such amazing birds! BIRD FACT: Like all owls, the ruru can rotate its neck a full 27 degrees which helps it locate its prey. #planetbirds #birdsadored #birdphotography #sehrehcanary #nature_worldwide_birds #birdlife #birdsofinstagram #birds_private #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #birdfacts #ig_discoverbirdlife #yourbestbirds #bb_of_ig #bird_portrait #nzbirds #birdsofaotearoa #bestbirdshots #bestbirdpix #bird_captures #magnificent_bird_photos #nzdphoto #nzgeo #olympus #birds_illife #eye_spy_birds #bird_brilliance #birdselite #owls

🅾🆁🅸🅴🅽🆃🅰🅻 🅳🅰🆁🆃🅴🆁 __________________________________________________________ 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥 𝐋𝐈𝐓𝐓𝐋𝐄 𝐅𝐀𝐂𝐓 Oriental Darter population is decreasing day by day,extinction risk is Near Threatened because its population is suspected to be in moderately rapid decline owing to pollution,drainage, hunting and the collection of eggs and nestlings. Currently the global population is around 30,000individuals. Being a city dweller I still found few of this species in my hometown near lakes as a local resident.They feed on fish and make their habitat in fresh water lakes.They comes under the category of sea birds.The male females are allmost look alike.It darts its neck to impale fish and then brings them out of water,tossing them into the air before swallowing the fish head first. Herein the picture showing how they dart and kill the prey with the sharp pointed bill before swallowing. __________________________________________________________ #bestshotz_birds #BBCWildlifePOTD #fotorbit_ig #krish_capturing_nature #cnw #bird_brilliance #yourshot_india #planetbirds#NikonD500 #birdphotographersofindia #best_birds_planet #your_best_birds #indianbirds #sancturyasia #yesbbcearth #udog_feathers #birds_of_instagram #sassy_birds #feather_perfection #birds_adored #bb_of_ig #ig_discover_wildlife #birds_private #ybb_300k #EarthCapture #birdfreaks #eye_spy_birds #birds_illife #wildlife_of_westbengal #westbengaltourism __________________________________________________________ @best_birds_of_world @discoverychannelin @hipaae @bbcearth @birds_illife @pocket_birds @birds .nature @eyewinawards @claws .n.wings @birdsphotographers_of_india @natgeoindia @indian_forest_official @nuts_about_birds @nikonasia @nikonindiaofficial @nikonphotocontest @birdsonearth @westbengaltourism @captureinwild @birds_adored @pocketbirds @awpc .hk @raw_challenge_ @raw_kingdom @birdvibrance @birdsonearth @birdvibrance @bestshotz_birds @best_birds_photography @birds .indian @strabopixelclub @naturein_focus @wildlifeindia @saevuswildlife @sanctuaryasia @fotorbit_ig @natural_history_museum @dailybirdpix @dailymirror ❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️❌️

Turquoise Cotinga (male ), San Vito, Costa Rica. Continued from the previous post, I could not help posting another photo of this beautiful and rare male bird. This species belongs to cotingas, a large family of Cotingidae, which is primarily frugivorous. Males of cotingas are brightly colored, but females are duller than males. Many males have striking courtship displays, often grouped together in leks (competitive mating displays in a high tree as Birds of Paradise in Asia or a ground as Cocks-of-the Rock in South America Males ). Males mate with several females. Females alone care for the eggs and young. #birdsofinstagram #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #nuts_about_birds #bird_brilliance #feather_perfection #kings_birds #birdphotography #birdfreaks #birds #birdstagram #birdwatching #pocket_birds #bns_birds #wildbirds #allmightybirds #birdextreme #birds_illife #igbirds #perfect_birds #birdsmatter #ig_birdwatchers #best_birds_of_ig #bb_of_ig #best_birds_planet #birds_adored #cotinga #birdsofcostarica #puravida #turquoisecotinga
