◽Hi! This amazing bird is a crested serpent eagle (Spilornis cheela). As you can guess it eats mostly snakes and lizards. We also have relative snake eagles in region of Russia where I live. But they are rare and shy and very hard to shoot. While this species is quite common and friendly to wildlife photographer.☺◽ ◾Привет! Сегодня у меня большой хохлатый змееяд. Как можно догадаться, основу его рациона составляют рептилии. В России, где я живу, есть дальняя родня этого вида, который тоже питается змеями. Но наши птички очень недоверчивые и скрытные, в то время как индийские спокойно позируют фотографам.☺◾

this is a #whoopingcrane. if you don’t think humans are both incredibly awful and awesome at the same time, check this out. in the 1940s the whooping crane (one of only two north american crane species) was on the verge of extiction—fewer than two dozen remained because of human activity (hunting, habitat loss). the majestic bird’s population was feared doomed but has grown to about ten times since then (still highly endangered at just 250 birds). now bred mostly in captivity, the birds must imprint onto humans who wear white suits and teach these birds their migration routes via ultralight aircraft, which takes weeks to make the journey. the birds only need to be taken on the trip from texas to canada once to learn it. the majestic bird stands over five feet tall with a wingspan double its height. and it’s mommy is a scientist in disguise. . . . #themoreyouknow #animalcrossing #animalprotection #animalrights #animalwelfare #animalhabitat #notours #endangeredspecies #birdsofinstagram #cranesinthesky #vegannews #vegancommunity #animalrescue #imprinting #vegansofig #animalsofig

Asian openbill stork the name is derived from the distinctive gap formed between the recurved lower and arched upper mandible of the beak in adult birds. Young birds do not have this gap. The cutting edges of the mandible have a fine brush like structure that is thought to give them better grip on the shells of snails. Scientific name : Anastomus oscitans Common name : Asian openbill stork #birds#birdsofinstagram#goldenlight#stork#migration#migratingbirds#natgeo#indianwildlifeofficial#Wildlifeofindia#wildlifeofficial#indianwild#discoveryhd#natgeowild#bbcworld#bbcearth#nikonaisa#nikon#nikonindia#wildlife#nature#wildlifephotography#wildlifeaddicts#wilderness#animalplanet

Spotted this Purple Moorhen in Lalbagh today. Found in marshlands and swamps, it is purple in colour with a red patch on the bald head and red beak with long red legs clumsily moving along the shoreline or among the reeds.  The male is a glistening purple color and the female is a little duller than the male with greyish-purple colour. . . #lalbagh #karnataka #nammabengauru #bengaluru #morning #morningwalk #beautiful #bir#bir#birdnstagram #bird #birds #moorhen #water #swamp #marsh #igers #instapic

These little fellas are some of the only inhabitants of Isla Magdalena, where they father in large numbers. There's another colony closer to Punta Arenas but this island, a mere two hour ride from the city, is a better option. #penguins #bir#birdsstagram #birds #islamagdalena #islamagdalenachile #sou#southernchile #magdalenaisland #findemundo #endoftheworld #nature #naturephotography #naturephotos #naturegram #southernchile #chile #chilepics #chilephotos #chilegram #instachile #igchile #southamerica #southamericatravel #acrosssouthamerica #aroundtheworld #aroundtheworldtrip

My kind of model! So it's been a long time since I've posted any wildlife or anything besides Iceland and Greenland for that matter... I'm a bit of a nature nut and increasingly becoming more and more of a "bird nerd". I think most of you know I love puffins and this year I was lucky enough to see them in the wild, but here in Australia we have so many awesome birds, including the weird and wonderful Tawny Frogmouth (NOT an owl). A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to join @photographicpassions in Sydney for a workshop photographing some stunning models from Australian Wildlife Displays.

🔥📹🎯from @gopro - Not the kind of drone you want to use with your #HER#HERO5. 🐦 #GoP#GoP#GoProds recipient Kjell Robertsen lost his #GoPro to a #seagull + found it 5 months later on the coast of #Norway. Using the Telemetry data from his GoPro, we were able to break down the stats from the short-lived journey. 🇳🇴 • • • #GoPro #HERO5 #Wildlife #Dronestagram #birdsofinstagram
