Dark Morph Red-tailed Hawk. Today we saw strong SW winds all day, increasing in strength nearly every hour or two.  It was the first sunny day, that remained sunny, in over a month!  In fact, the last time we had this much sun was on September 17th!  This led to a rather nice movement despite a wind direction that raptors had to work against.  In fact, they chose to go during the middle of the day, rather than the less windy, earlier part of the day.  From 12 until 2 contained the bulk of the flight, with most Red-tailed Hawks flying across the straits in steady 15 mph SW winds and still regularly crossing in steady 17 mph winds that were gusting to 25 mph.  It seemed as if the steady 18-20+ mph mark was when they stopped crossing into the SW wind.  Many still got to the lake but subsequently turned around and headed north or lingered around.  At one point there was even a distant kettle of 45 Red-tailed Hawks to the northeast, with an additional 17in view at the same time.  So, 148 of the 210 Red-tailed Hawks crossed the straits into a strong headwind.  This was incredibly surprising and unexpected to see.  Red-tailed Hawks prefer not to cross large bodies of water and yet they did so in some of the most unfavorable winds.  It was definitely the most unfavorable conditions I’ve ever seen Red-tailed Hawks cross anywhere.  From 1:00 onward, winds were steady at 18-25 mph and gusting 25-33 mph. A total of 357 raptors were tallied for the day including 109 Turkey Vultures, 4 Red-shouldered Hawks, 4 Rough-legged Hawks, a “dark morph” Red-tailed Hawk, and a Golden Eagle. . . . . . . . #redtailedhawk #buteojamaicensis #buteo #birds_community #best_bird_shots #birds_official #excellent_nature #naturehippys #birds_lovers_ #bd_pro #kute_birds #perfect_birds #birdyourworld #birdimages #birdielicious #birdsofig #birdsofinsta #birdlife_insta #yearofthebird  #elite_raptors #only_raptors #birdofprey #birdsofprey  #birdsinflight #birdsflying

The pecan trees have started shedding their leaves and the resident Red Shouldered Hawk has been making his daily appearance. Best part of a Texas autumn or winter is that the birds are out in plain sight. Great for a lazy birder like myself. #redshoulderedhawk #fulbrook #birdyourworld #yearofthebird #canonusa

Hylocharis grayi• Blue-headed Sapphire• Zafiro Cabeciazul• Esta especie se describe como "poco común", (Stotz et al., 1996). Hermoso colibrí, con su pico rojo y sus colores bastantes vistosos; adornan cualquier flor. Se encuentra solo en Colombia y Ecuador. Sus hábitats naturales son los bosques bajos húmedos subtropicales o tropicales, los manglares y los bosques. 🌱💎🐦🌳 "Más de la mitad de todos los colibríes muere durante el primer año de vida. La esperanza de vida de los que sobreviven es de hasta 4 años, sin embargo, existen informes, no verificados, de algunos que vivieron durante 12 años". Ayudemoslos a que vivan muchos años, cuidando sus hábitats y entornos. 🐦🐥🐤🍃🌿☘️🌳🌱🌾 #hummingbird#colibries #your_best_birds#wildlife#best_birds_of_world#birds#birdsofcolombia#avesdecolombia#your_best_birds#bestbirdshots#Wildbird#Yearofthebird#birdyourworld#speciesofbirds#birdwatchExperiencie#Birds_adored#best_birds_of_ig#naturehippys_birds#nuts_about_birds#Excellent_Nature#birds_adored#planetbirds#bird_brilliance#splendid_nature#feather_perfection#pocket_birds#best_birds_of_world #BIRDWATCHING#ip_birds #Hylocharisgrayi #BlueheadedSapphire #ZafiroCabeciazul

It's migration season, and you're looking, you are likely find lovely White-throated Sparrows like this along edges of woodlots, hedgerows, thickets, weedy fields, suburbs, backyards, and city parks! Photo credit: Twan Leenders #YearOfTheBird #BirdYourWorld

I love seeing limpkins. They were nearly hunted to extinction in the early 20th century. Not the most colorful bird, but I think they’re just beautiful! They have a very creepy cry that sounds like a person wailing. #limpkin #circlebbarreserve

The male Yellow Weaver, in the breeding season, is attractive with a black bill, red eye and yellow body. Outside of the breeding season both sexes are duller and the bill is more grey than black. These weavers reach a length of 16 cm and may be found breeding in reedbeds and trees near water. They may move a bit away from water, into the surrounding bush, when not breeding. In South Africa it is found along the eastern regions from around Port Elizabeth through to northern KwaZulu-Natal. The Yellow Weaver mainly eats seeds and termite alates when available. The pair make their nest near water in small colonies that may include nests of other weavers such as the Thick-billed Weaver. 2 to 4 eggs are laid. #neilhphotography @neilhphotography #birdlifedurban #birdlifesa #birdlifekzn #birdsofinstagram #birdsofsouthafrica #birdloversdaily #birdlovers_daily #birdloversworldwide #birdloversofinstagram #seewildlife #birding_lounge #bestbirdshots #exclusivewidlife #anythingfeathered #bird_brilliance #birdyourworld #birds_ilife #sabirds #nuts_about_birds #birdcaptures #birdland #birds #natuurfotografie #vroegvogels #earlybird #shotbyyou_birds #_birds_wonderful_ #bird_freaks #birdslocal

I don’t know if anyone else loves Plain Chachalacas as much as I do. When I first went to the Rio Grande Valley I only saw one and I felt as if I had saw something super rare. Fast forward a few weeks later to when I was working there and I had a flock of ~70 and can’t get enough of them. They’re full of personality and entertaining to watch. I can’t wait to go back in a few weeks and see them again!

Looking at the tones of the plumage of this Striped Cuckoo, it's pretty easy to see how it's an often overlooked species of grasslands here in #Trinidad. Its call, however, is a staple of the aural landscape, I remember hearing it when I was a little boy, that strident, two-note whistle wafting over the hills. Now the same hills are plastered with concrete and I must travel further to hear this sound of my childhood. Sad times. #birdman #birdsofig #birding #birdwatching #birders #stripedcuckoo #cuckoo #cuckoosquad #cuckooselangor #broodparasitism #musings #sunrisechaser #dawnchorus #goldenhourlight #softlight #birdphotography #birdphoto #birdsoftrinidadandtobago #tangle #takethepowerback #animalintelligence #whoknowsthetruth #birdyourworld #yearofthebird

Semnornis Ramphastinus • Toucan Barbet • Compás . (JUVENIL)🐦🍁🦆🌱🍃 "La amenaza más crítica que enfrentan las aves es la destrucción y la fragmentación de hábitats. La pérdida de bosques, pastizales y otros ecosistemas naturales por la agricultura, las minas y el desarrollo urbano, el drenaje de pantanos y otros humedales, y la extracción de madera reducen el hábitat potencial para muchas especies" Protejamos los bosques.🍃🌱🌿 🌱🍃☘️🌿🌳☘️🍀🌿 Toucan Barbet es una de las aves más elegantes de América del Sur. Se encuentra solo en el oeste de Colombia y el oeste de Ecuador. Esta colorida especie, es frugívora, y tiene un sistema cooperativo de reproducción.  La especie muestra una gran variedad de colores. Es un barbudo robusto. Son aves territoriales que normalmente viven en grupos reducidos. Se han reducido sus poblaciones debido a la pérdida de hábitat. #birdsofcolombia #birding #avistamiento #avesdecolombia#your_best_birds#wildlife#best_birds_of_world#ValledelCauca#Colombia#Naturaleza#Aves#nature#birds#birdsofcolombia#avesdecolombia#your_best_birds#birdsofinstagram#bestbirdshots#kings_birds#birds_private#wonderousnature#best_birds_of_ig#birdwatch#colombiabirdwatch#Wildbird#Yearofthebird#birdyourworld#speciesofbirds#birdwatchExperiencie#Birds_adored#birdingtours#observadoresdeaves#macrophoto
