Way back in spring of last year, I took this terrible photo of a northern parula in an odd position, looking at me from upside down. They should be one of our next visitors to come north in the next few weeks. More of an eastern species in the US, the northern parula has been found nesting along the coast of northern California a handful of times. . . . . #northernparula #warbler #centralpark #nyc #birdsofinstagram #birdwatching #ornithology #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #naturyst #best_birds_of_ig #nuts_about_birds #bestbirds #bestbirdshots #birds_captures #wildlifephotography #birds_adored #perfect_birds #birdphotography #nature_perfection #_birdpicoftheday_ #outdoors #scenic #pocket_birds #feather_perfection #allmightybirds #animalphotography #your_best_birds #nikon

Anna's Hummingbird showing his beautiful colors off. I'm just happy I got his feathers on focus but I don't know why the rest of his body was not in focus. Maybe because he put his head forward who knows 🤷. Well anyways I just hope you like it too. 🔝🔝🔝📷📷📷📷🐦🐦🐦🐦 • • (📷: Canon EOS 80D) Focal length:500.0mm Aperature: f/7.1 ISO/film: 200 And Shutter Speed: 1/640 • • • #birdphotography #birdhopper #bliss_birds #bio_moritz #wildlifephotography #gf_wildlife #photography #total_birds #your_best_birds #natureofn #birds_4you #kings_birds #ig_birdwatchers #birds_captures #eye_spy_birds #withmytamron #birdfreaks #birds_illife #bird_brilliance #ww_nature_knowledge #ourfunnynature #_birdpicoftheday_ #pocket_birds #birds_adored #birdwatching #canonphotography #birdsofinstagram #sassy_birds #abc7eyewitness #tamron150600g2

One of my very first posts was the fantastic-looking Cape May Warbler. The individual pictured here is in nonbreeding plumage during its fall migration south. The Cape May's tongue is the only one amongst warblers that is curled and semitubular to collect nectar during the winters. This bird was named for Cape May, NJ where it was first described and then not recorded again there for another 100 years. This individual was gobbling down ants and came within 1 foot of where I was standing. Didn't seem to mind a bit. . . . . #capemaywarbler #warbler #fourfreedomspark #nyc #birdsofinstagram #birdwatching #ornithology #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #naturyst #best_birds_of_ig #nuts_about_birds #bestbirds #bestbirdshots #birds_captures #wildlifephotography #birds_adored #perfect_birds #birdphotography #nature_perfection #_birdpicoftheday_ #outdoors #scenic #pocket_birds #feather_perfection #allmightybirds #animalphotography #your_best_birds #nikon

Reddish Egret (breeding adult dark morph) is a new bird for me. It's been reported here for quite some time. Was happy to spot it hanging out on one foot. Don't know if he was trying to be territorial about this area or not. But I just like how I got his feathers flying upwards. Hope you like it too. 😍😍😍🐦🐦🐦📷📷📷🔝🔝🔝 • • (📷: Canon EOS 80D) Focal length:600.0mm Aperature: f/7.1 ISO/film: 800 And Shutter Speed: 1/800 • • • #birdphotography #birdhopper #bliss_birds #bio_moritz #wildlifephotography #gf_wildlife #photography #total_birds #your_best_birds #natureofn #birds_4you #kings_birds #ig_birdwatchers #birds_captures #eye_spy_birds #withmytamron #birdfreaks #birds_illife #bird_brilliance #ww_nature_knowledge #ourfunnynature #_birdpicoftheday_ #pocket_birds #birds_adored #birdwatching #canonphotography #birdsofinstagram #sassy_birds #abc7eyewitness #tamron150600g2

Birds of prey can be quite difficult to locate in trees, despite their size, due to feather camouflage and how still they sit. If it hadn’t been for the alarm calls of multiple song birds nearby, I would not have noticed this Cooper’s hawk almost right above me. . Check out my etsy store for prints of my photography.

The answer to the poll on the story I had up is🥁🥁 Ring-billed Gull. Only 10 guessed it right. California Gull is wrong (16 guessed it wrong which I was amazed on this outcome.) because the eye is very black inside and their bill only has some red and black underneath towards the tip. The Nonbreeding adult Ring-billed Gull (shown in this picture) has in his eye light yellow with a black dot in the middle it and his bill has a black stripe going straight down from top to bottom towards the end of it. And the breeding adult is much whiter than the nonbreeding. That's how you can tell apart the eyes and bill of the Ring-billed Gull and the California Gull. Hope this was helpful. And hope you like the picture.📷📷🔝🔝🐦🐦🐦🐦🕵️🕵️ • • (📷: Canon EOS 80D) Focal length:309.0mm Aperature: f/7.1 ISO/film: 160 And Shutter Speed: 1/400 • • • #birdphotography #birdhopper #bliss_birds #bio_moritz #wildlifephotography #gf_wildlife #photography #total_birds #your_best_birds #natureofn #birds_4you #kings_birds #ig_birdwatchers #birds_captures #eye_spy_birds #withmytamron #birdfreaks #birds_illife #bird_brilliance #ww_nature_knowledge #ourfunnynature #_birdpicoftheday_ #pocket_birds #birds_adored #birdwatching #canonphotography #birdsofinstagram #sassy_birds #abc7eyewitness #tamron150600g2

Red-naped Sapsucker (Sphyrapicus nuchalis) drink from excavations called “sap wells”. These woodpeckers actively maintain and visit their holes to lap up the energy rich sap that flows from their arboreal hosts. •_•_•_•_•_•_•_•_•_•_•_• • • • • #birdsbybijs #birdphotography #birds_matter #total_birds #birds_4you #birds_captures #birdfreaks #birdwatching #sassy_birds #_birdpicoftheday_ #bliss_birds #splendid_nature #feathered_finds #ig_discover_birdslife #birdextreme #kings_birds #eye_spy_birds #thetweetsuites #bird_brilliance

House Finch (adult male). Love when I can get the beauty of their red to show. This time I nailed it at the right time and location💥💥😎. Got this guy like at 9 am when the sun is still rising in the background making the scene lightly shaded which is making his colors stand out. Just lovely 😍.

The Great Egret was chosen to represent the National Audubon Society. Their long breeding plume feathers are called aigrettes and were very sought-after into the early 1900s for adorning women's hats. This almost led to their extirpation from the US, as 95% of the egrets in the US were killed. Today, global breeding population is estimated at 180,000. . . . . #greategret #egret #randallsisland #nyc #birdsofinstagram #birdwatching #ornithology #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #naturyst #best_birds_of_ig #nuts_about_birds #bestbirds #bestbirdshots #birds_captures #wildlifephotography #birds_adored #perfect_birds #birdphotography #nature_perfection #_birdpicoftheday_ #outdoors #scenic #pocket_birds #feather_perfection #allmightybirds #animalphotography #your_best_birds #nikon

During winter time, sounds from the lake’s edge include the rustle of leaves and the occasional squaaak of a heron hidden from view. However, with the upswing in temperature and growing daylight hours, heightened testosterone levels induce aggressive singing from males. —— With much competition from other males living along the lakes edge, this Common Yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas) sings to establish his territory and secure access to both food and a mate. 🌾✨ —— Want to learn more about birds and ecology??

Savannah Sparrow (Adult belding's) eating seeds the plants drop or bugs.

Northern Pintails are long-living ducks (up to 22+ years) and are some of the earliest nesters amongst North American Ducks. The longest non-stop migration flight recorded was 1800 miles. These striking ducks are found in many regions of the world, occurring on at least 3 continents. . . . . #northernpintail #pintail #centralpark #nyc #birdsofinstagram #birdwatching #ornithology #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #naturyst #best_birds_of_ig #nuts_about_birds #bestbirds #bestbirdshots #birds_captures #wildlifephotography #birds_adored #perfect_birds #birdphotography #nature_perfection #_birdpicoftheday_ #outdoors #scenic #pocket_birds #feather_perfection #allmightybirds #animalphotography #your_best_birds #nikon
