Yellow-eyed Babbler (Chrysomma sinense ) A cute little bird appeared before me while I was walking in midst of Grasslands. They are majorly found in the Grasslands and Shrublands. Their calls and Songs made me follow them, it was such a beautiful experience watching their behaviour and seeing them play around . . . #yelloweyedbabbler #babbler #wildbird #bird #birds #birdsofinstagram #birdphoto #birdphotography #birdsofig #birdsofindia #birdstagram #birdextreme #birding #bird_brilliance #birdfreaks #birdwatching #best_bird_of_ig #bb_of_ig #bestbirdshots #your_best_birds #birds_adored #wild_bird_trust #nammakarnatakawildlife #walknclick #shot #birdlovers #wild #wildlife #wildplanetphotomag #birdsofprey

#Repost with @fastsave_photo_video credit: @kennydiazj Paloma Turca (Patagioenas squamosa ). En la isla existen tres tipos de palomas cimarronas, las cuales son residentes permanentes: la Paloma Turca (Patagioenas squamosa ), la Paloma Coronita (Patagioenas leucocephala ) y la Paloma Ceniza (Patagioenas inornata ). Todas estas palomas son muy perseguidas por los cazadores y las tres se encuentran en estado “amenazadas”. #Patagioenassquamosa #palomaturca #scalynapedpigeon #pigeon #dove #kennydiaz #adfona #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #birdsfreaks

Least Sandpiper (sp. Calidris minutilla ) and the winner of the smallest shorebird goes to...the Least Sandpiper! This picture cost me a broken pair of pants, a scraped kneed and a broken Carbon Fiber tripod but still well worth it. #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #feather_perfection #birds_adored #birdsandblooms #bestbeautifulbirds #fifty_shades_of_nature #bestnatureshots #wildlife_perfection #birdselite #1birdshot #shorebirds #leastsandpiper

Female Bushtit 09-13-20 #the_nature_journal #bushtit Nature is an amazing light room.  It was a rainy and cold morning. We felt like going birding, to see if the rains change anything for birds wandering in the morning for food. We went in our backyard, saw Anna's Hummingbird, Scrub Jay, Song Sparrow and then to our surprise there was a bushtit nest hanging from the bottom branch, hidden in leaves. That was a moment of tremendous happiness. We were seeing a real nest for the first time.  There were some bushtits playing peekaboo. We were following their movements for a long time. Papa and mumma bushtit were bringing insects to the nest one by one. Soon their feeding was done, and their whole bunch started moving from one tree to the other.  It was such a circus to follow them to get a nice shot. But finally we were able to get a few shots. That felt a big achievement. It was just amazing to see how perfect lighting can present itself naturally.  Fun fact - Bushtits are remarkable in the fact that they are one of the smallest birds found in North America and about half their four inch length is made up by their long tail! #eye_spy_birds   #best_birds_of_ig   #best_birds_of_world   #nuts_about_birds   #your_best_birds   #kings_birds_   #best_birds_planet #birds_private #photooftheday #ourplanetdaily #nature brilliance #instagood #awesomeearth   #birdphotography #birdstagram #birds #birdwatching #birdlovers #sony #bestbirdshots #nature #wildlifephotography #natgeo #discover #portland #oregon

©All rights reserved. Gaining confidence in the wild. When you are looking to take close-ups in nature you have to earn the trust of the subject, little by little. It is a game, like a dance, just as when you are looking for that girl or guy you want to dance with. (1 ) First a brief sight and crossing of glances. (2 ) Then, unworried, like nothing actually happens, you pretend you have found something interesting... just down there. (3 ) You approach playing dumb, looking away but walking straight towards the objective. (4 ) You comb a little bit, (5 ) take something from the food place, share it, (6 ) and start flirting. It happened for this photo series I always was in the same position with my camera, face down in the sand; it seems it was this Oystercatcher who actually wanted a close-up of me in the wild, and got me. . #Ecuador #ecuadoramalavida #ostreroamericano #americanoystercatcher #travel #viaje #viagem #voyage #travelecuador #viajaecuador #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeowild #naturephotography #fotonaturaleza #naturelover #storyteller #bestnatureshot #yourshotphotographer #wildlife #wildlifeshots #wildlifephotography #ourplanet #birdwatching #bestbirdshots #pajareando #unescoworldheritage #closeup #getolympus #olympuse5 . @galapagos .espera.por.ti @parquegalapagos @galapagosisland @ecuadorterraincognita @metropolitantouringec @metropolitantouring @galapagosconservancy

After yesterday’s extraordinary reaction to my nesting Scarlet Macaw image I though it would be appropriate to post another image from the same area, only this time of small parrots that come into the colpas or clay licks to get their fix of sodium. In this image there are beautiful Blue-headed and Orange-cheeked Parrots ravenously feeding on the clay. #featherperfection #eye_spy_birds #wildlifeplanet #earthpix #bird_watchers_daily #nature_worldwide_birds #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #birds_adored #planetbirds #bird_illife #bestbirdshots #naturyst #best_birds_of_world #best_birds_planet #birdphotography #blueheadedparrots #orange heekedparrots #claylicks

A stunning Blue and Gold (aka Blue and Yellow ) Macaw takes flight against a colpa or clay lick background. Most macaw images you see are set against a blue sky or jungle background, so I quite liked the earthy difference with this image. #featherperfection #eye_spy_birds #wildlifeplanet #earthpix #bird_watchers_daily #nature_worldwide_birds #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #birds_adored #planetbirds #bird_illife #bestbirdshots #naturyst #best_birds_of_world #best_birds_planet #birdphotography #blueandgoldmacaw #macaws

Mountain Bluebird momentarily on the ground . When surrounded by a flock of Mountain Bluebirds, I’ve learned it’s prudent to be patient. The more you move as a photographer, the fewer chances you’ll get to photograph these gorgeous birds doing what they do best - hunting insects. On account of their habitat offering few perches, Mountain Bluebirds have evolved the ability to hover, which they do so effectively to spot their favourite Autumn food - grasshoppers! . Upon the location of their prey, Mountain Bluebirds descend with gusto from a hover or a perch, surprising their unlikely lunch from above. After lying in the tall grasses for over an hour, this is the only serviceable shot I took, and he even missed the grasshopper! No matter, I love how the blue pops against the dry, arid background. . Settings: 1/640, f5.6, ISO 800 Time of photo: 9:34am Conditions: Cloudy . . . #mountainbluebird #bluebird #blue #grassland #natgeoyourshot #birding #planetearth #nature #bcbirds #bcbirding #birdsofcanada #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #birding #naturelovers #feather_perfection #bird #cangeo #sharecangeo #birdsofinstagram #bestbirdsofinstagram #birds #bestbirdshots #photography #raw_birds #eye_spy_birds #bird_brilliance #wildlife #best_birds_of_ig #nuts_about_birds #northwestnature

A beautiful Goldfinch that I met.
