Beach Birds ! On vacation @Fernandina Beach Florida- I had the privilege to photograph these cool little beach birds ! If I didn’t know any better 🤔 I ‘d swear they were doing bird-yoga ? What do you think ? Could have yoga started on the beach with birds ? #beach #sandpipers #birdphotographer #florida #fernandinabeach #vacation #nikonphotography #d7200nikon #beachbirds #naturephotography #fbchristophersviewphotography #august #jacksonvilleflorida #nationalgeographic #shutterbugs #outdoorphotography #hobbies #birdwatching #dmvphotographer #northernflorida #summertime #instagramphotography #birdsdoingyoga

I didn’t realize how much I missed Blue Jays until we moved back north, just a majestic bird. I put a few peanuts on the deck and within minutes this beauty arrived. #birdphotographer #minnesotabirds

'Multi-coloured Magnificence' Perhaps the most spectacularly coloured of all Australian birds, Gouldian Finches are one of Australia's colourful grassfinches. Unfortunately, this beautiful, striking bird is a target for capture by the illegal bird trade and along with habitat destruction and climate change, it's numbers are threatened. As the wet season approaches these interesting birds will move to the drier inland areas. © Photograph By Peter Brown Photographer ALL RIGHTS RESERVED Shot with the Canon 5DsR and the Canon EF 300mm f2.8 II IS L lens with the Canon EF 2x tele-extender III giving an effective 600mm telephoto. #birdsofinstagram #birdstagram #earthcapture #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #birdfreaks #wildlifeplanet #nature #birding #birdingphotography #wildgeography #birdsonearth #best_birds_of_world #best_birds_of_ig #birdlover #birdphotographer #birdphotography #birdsofaustralia #birdingphotography #ausgeo #canon #canonaustralia #cameraproau #canon300mmf28 #canon5dsr #canon300mm #australiannativebirds #australianbirds #australianfinches #gouldianfinch

One more shot of my first Merlin photo opportunity last night on a power pole near my home. The merlin (Falco columbarius) is a small species of falcon from the Northern Hemisphere, with numerous subspecies throughout North America and Eurasia. A bird of prey once known colloquially as a pigeon hawk in North America, migrates to subtropical and northern tropical regions in winter. Males typically have wingspans of 53–58 centimetres (21–23 in), with females being slightly larger. They are swift fliers and skilled hunters. In recent decades merlin populations in North America have been significantly increasing, with some merlins becoming so well adapted to city life that they forgo migration.

Hi, @jeo126 here. Two essential rules of bird photography are that you have to have the eye in focus and that you should avoid taking pictures of mallards because they’re so common. So here’s a favorite shot of mine that breaks both rules... a female mallard, backside and feet in the air and head underwater as she does some deep dabbling. #apatakeover #birdphotography #birdphoto #birdstagram #birdsofinstagram #birding #birder #birdwatcher #birdwatching #birdphotographer #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #naturephotography #audubonsociety #bestbirdshots #planetbirds #birdsandblooms #igbirds #ctaudubon #ctaudubonsociety #ctwildlife #ctbirds #duckphotography

Red tailed Hawk flying up above me. It came flying out of a distant tree and headed right toward where I was sitting, like it was curious about what that big black lens on my camera was as I aimed my camera up into the sky at it. #redtailedhawk #redtailedhawks #bird #birds #birdphotography #birdphotographer #eye_spy_birds #hawk #hawks #birdlovers #bestbirdsofinstagram #hawksofinstagram #birdphotos #birdphotography #birdsinflight #birdphotographer #bestbirdshots #bigbirds #bestbirds #birdphotos #bird_watching_of_gram #birdwatching #birding #yourbestbirds #audubonsociety #feathersperfection

For a long time, this dazzling skulker was a tough bird to see with a group. Luckily it has recently become habituated to a site that we visit on our Malay Peninsula tour and, as long as this situation lasts, we will be treated to fantastic close-up views of the stunning Ferruginous Partridge (Craig Robson).⁠ ⁠ #ferruginouspartridge #partridge #malaypeninsula #birdsofthailand #thailandbirds #travelthailand #birdsofsoutheastasia #birdsofasia #birdquest #birdquest_tours #birding #birdphotography #birdphotographer #birdwatching #nature #naturephotography #naturephotographer #bird #birds #wildlife #wildlifephotographer ⁣⁠ #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #feather_perfection #kings_birds #birdsofinstagram #your_best_birds #bird_brilliance #planetbirds #birdsofthemalaypeninsula

The amazing deal about the bar-headed goose is that they have the world's highest bird migration route. The geese have been recorded at heights of more than 7,000m (23,000ft). An insane altitude with less than 10% the oxygen found at sea level. Many mountaineers have spotted the geese flying over the top of Mount Everest, the summit of which is approximately 29,000 feet above sea level! That is something beyond extraordinary for any living organism, let alone a medium sized geese. . . Less than 10 days to the 2019-2020 season kick off! Got your safaris booked?

I very rarely try this, but this one came out okay. I used a slow shutter speed to capture some movement in the wings and frankly guessed at the exposure in order to show the setting sun’s impact on the tail feathers.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Made in the Cook Inlet of Alaska.

Good morning! @jeo126 here for day three of my @audubonpa takeover. When I got into this hobby a few years ago one of my first realizations was that not all ducks are mallards. With the help of a camera I started to take note of the variety of waterfowl that migrates through here or stays all winter on the inlets along Long Island Sound and even on local ponds in the middle of suburbia. One of first non-mallards I noticed was the Hooded Merganser. The males, with their striking black-and-white crests, are hard to miss, and the females are a bit more subtle. Hooded Mergansers are diving ducks that capture small fish and crustaceans below the surface with their serrated bills. Here’s a female with a freshly caught sunfish on a small local pond. She wrestled with it for about 30 seconds before swallowing it whole. #apatakeover #birdphotography #birdphoto #birdstagram #birdsofinstagram #birding #birder #birdwatcher #birdwatching #birdphotographer #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #naturephotography #audubonsociety #bestbirdshots #planetbirds #birdsandblooms #igbirds #ctaudubon #ctaudubonsociety #ctwildlife #ctbirds #duckphotography

I wasn't going to post this one as it's a terrible shot but wanted to tell the story. I had gone out on my day off in hopes of catching the mist on the river. Of course every single morning I was at work the conditions were perfect and on the morning I had free there was no sun at all. So I was playing the waiting game with a Heron. Me waiting for some light, the Heron, for fish. A black shape flew from my left and I spun round to see a Cormorant maybe 10 meters away. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a decent image but it was fascinating to see it go underwater and pop back up. Since that day I've seen 4 along the river so one day I'll do a stake out and see if I can catch one :) #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeimages #river #instabird #instanature #bird #birdphotography #ukwildlife #uknature #birdsofinstagram #birdsofbritain #birdportrait #birdphotographer #britishbirds #cormorant #sigma150600 #canon7dmarkii

This male Northern Cardinal in morning sun is hoping you all have a wonderful day. Really, he told me so🙃 There were three (2 males/ 1 female) and at varying times, they each chose a sunny spot in the tree to perch for a while. #northerncardinal
