COLLARED OWLET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 👀👀👀 This was my top target bird for Cambodia but they are notoriously difficult to find (it's the smallest owl in Asia - so not easy to spot!) I never expected to get eyes on it, let alone get to watch it vocalizing in a tree for a full 15 minutes. The photos are super grainy, but check out the occipital face on the third photo - coolest fieldmark of this owl. Last photo: the happy team! Most of the credit for the find goes to the other two - my biggest contribution was enthusiasm. Not pictured: lots of hugs, silent cheering and high fives! #collaredowlet #ethicalowlphoto #owlet #gla#glaucidiumbrodiei #glaucidium

I have spent close to 98% of my time outdoors from a higher position than whatever I was chasing. In doing so I never looked up and saw the world above me. This view is tab bit sweeter. • • • #chasingfeathers #skyscrapping #eyestothesky #duck #goose #waterfowl #njwaterfowlers #thisiswhy #nature #wildlife #outdoors #ducktrip #winchester #theyllfly #theygottaeat #makeempoot

A juvenile bald eagle hangs out along the shoreline at Robinson Preserve.

Chickadees are thought of as the most gregarious birds. That means they’re very fond of Greg.

————————————————————— Rare Yellow Cardinal (Documented on February 18, 2018 in Alabaster, Alabama) ————————————————————— This yellow cardinal displays a rare mutation that causes the metabolic process to produce a different type of pigment than the typical red coloration seen in Northern Cardinals. According to Geoffrey Hill, a biologist from Auburn University, this mutation is so rare that only one is typically seen/documented each year in the United States. ————————————————————— To see more work please check out: www.JeremyBlackPhotography.com ————————————————————— • Please tag in any reposts • Don’t crop the watermark in any reposts © 2018 Jeremy Black Photography

I got to see some amazing birds this morning at Robinson Preserve, including this little blue heron hunting. We also saw white pelicans, prairie warblers, yellow crowned night herons, reddish egrets, great egrets, white ibis, ospreys, and even bald eagles! It was awesome. Got my bird fix. More to come! . . . #photography #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #natureshots #florida #floridabirds #heron #littleblueheron #kings_birds #bestbirdshots #chasingfeathers #birdsofinstagram #natureisawesome #hiking #neaturewalks #vacation #beachlife

This isn't the most colorful bird we have seen in Cambodia by a long shot, but it's one of my favorites. Pied Kingfisher hovers in one place over the water and suddenly dives for its prey like a speeding bullet (much like a Least Tern!). #piedkingfisher #cerylerudis #cambodiabirding #cambodiabirds

Hot heron! Birds will open their mouths and pant on hot days. Today is definitely one of those days - the sun makes it crazy hot and I was taking many chances to cool off in the ocean today. This great blue heron was hanging around on the beach hoping one of the fisherman would drop his catch. Made for some nice close up views. Tomorrow morning I’m heading to a wildlife preserve! Gonna be awesome. #AllTheBirds . . . #photography #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #natureshots #flo#floridabirds #floridawildlife #heron #greatblueheron #birdwatching #birding #birdnerd #kings_birds #bestbirdshots #chasingfeathers #birdsofinstagram #natureisawesome #hiking #neaturewalks #beach #annamariaisland #florida

Thorn Crossed Lovers ©RGallucci Photography The Curved-billed Thrasher has a distinct and hauntingly disjointed song that demands attention when heard. I was driving through the neighborhood tonight when I heard it and immediately stopped to find the owner. I was surprised to see the bird perched about 10 yards from me on a stunning Purple Cactus. As I watched the second thrasher flew in and the two began interacting with one another. It was too good not to take a picture off; so I did. It’s nice to share, please credit me with the shot .

Great Horned Owl I ©RGallucci Photography Most people love Owls. They are almost mythical as the secret custodians of the night. Seeing one, no matter how often it happens, is one of the great rewards of spending time in nature. I have driven hours to find an Owl, to spend time in its vicinity, watch its behavior and photograph its beauty. . This may be why I am so excited that we have three Great Horned Owls that call the area around our backyard home. They visit us frequently during the early dusk, staying quiet through the gloaming until night falls and they begin the ritual of haunting calls back and forth. Of the three, this one is my favorite. I have not seen a Great Horned with this distinctive, light coloration. I call it my Snowy Great Horned Owl. . I may bore you with future shots of these stunning birds. It is just my way of paying homage to their greatness. It’s nice to share, please credit me with the shot .

The American White Pelicans are making an early return to Utah this year due to our warm Winter. I guess tonight’s snow storm will catch them by surprise.

Roll credits. • That’s a wrap on our best season yet. It’s only been 3 years but how much we’ve grown is the best part.

Another shot of this rad little long-eared owl from yesterday. Man these are cool birds. 😎Definitely cooler than me, especially as I trudged through the snow and branches to get a clear line of sight to him tripping over things and getting snow in my boots. #BirdNerdForLife 🦉🤓 . . . #photography #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #natureshots #canadianwildlife #ontariowildlife #ontariobirds #kwawesome #kitchenerwaterloo #ExploreWR #discoverontario #sharecangeo #owl #longearedowl #owlsofinstagram #elite_raptors #elite_owls #kings_birds #ethicalowlphoto #onlyowls #bestbirdshots #chasingfeathers #birdsofinstagram #raptor #birdofprey #natureisawesome #hiking #neaturewalks

Went to my favorite park today to find some owls with @agoutdoorphotography @lexipow and @lee_daver. Didn’t see much in the usual places but on our way out we stumbled upon this rad little long eared owl. These guys are just incredible to watch and it was nice to see one out in the open taking in the surroundings. They have a much bigger wingspan that I thought! Eventually he had enough of the woodpeckers being jerks, so he flew to cover in a patch of pines. Made my day! #GetOutside! . . . #photography #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #natureshots #canadianwildlife #ontariowildlife #ontariobirds #kwawesome #kitchenerwaterloo #ExploreWR #discoverontario #sharecangeo #owl #longearedowl #owlsofinstagram #elite_raptors #elite_owls #kings_birds #ethicalowlphoto #onlyowls #bestbirdshots #chasingfeathers #birdsofinstagram #raptor #birdofprey #natureisawesome #hiking #nea#neaturewalks #neature

Because all stories must end, you’ll find that they journey towards a crescendo with a slow crawl through continual moments of grace and redemption in love; perhaps that crescendo is actually a joy in the tragedy of an end that’s simply all of the strings of those moments giving glimpses to the something new and unimaginable that comes next. • • • #fromwhereistand #stayandwander #moodygrams #nature #beach #islandlife #viewbug #birds #naturephotography #wil#wildlifephotography #wildlife #bestbirdshots #discoverglobe #majestic_wildlife #canon #natureshots #agameoftones #natureisawesome #chasingfeathers #mexico #mexicolors #beautifuldestinations #adventurevibes #birdofinstagram #canonphotography
