Up close and personal with what I’m guessing is a lesser black backed gull in Svolvær, on the island of Austvågøya in Norway’s Lofoten archipelago. I was standing right out at the end of the jetty and this guy was hoping to share my kanelboller (the Norwegian cinnamon bun). Cheeky monkey. Shot in July 2018, during our exploration of some of the remote islands of the North Atlantic 🇳🇴 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #lofoten #visitnorway #ig_norway #destinorway #norge #ig_color #birdsofinstagram #ig_birdwatchers #birds_adored #birdfreaks #pardalote #birds_illife #birds_of_the_world #birds_private #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #igscwildlife #discover_wildlife #wildlifephoto #wildlifelovers #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth #wildlifelovers #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeaddicts #femalenaturephotographycom #fujixt2

Each spring we delight in the striated #pardalotes which nest by our front door at #SophiesPatch. At the moment the babies are hungry so mum and dad are in and out all the time, and they don’t care about our comings and going’s or visitors. When people get to our front door they often think we have a #bird sensor as the babies start chirping whenever they hear movement. I hung this #birdhouse up as an ornament but they moved in 7 years ago and have been #nesting there every spring since. #mypatch

I wish this was clearer but I didn't want to disturb or frighten the babies. Wait for it....

A rainbow lorikeet, sitting perfectly still - for once. Got a lot of motion-blurred frames before this one. Thankful for digital photography. With the number of shots I have to take to get a clean image, film costs would destroy me. Shot near Bellthorpe National Park in mid-November 2018 during @stephen_porter_1968 and my visit to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast 🇦🇺 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #rainbowlorikeet #australianwildlife #birdsofinstagram #ig_birdwatchers #birds_adored #birdfreaks #pardalote #birds_illife #birds_of_the_world #birds_private #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #earthcapture #igscwildlife #discover_wildlife #wildlifephoto #wildlifelovers #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth #wildlifelovers #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeaddicts #femalenaturephotographycom #womenphotographers #womenphotographer #fujixt2 #fujifilmxt2

Straited Pardalotes generally feed in the canopies of tall eucalypts, making them difficult to see. This one came down to sing on a close twig.

Snapped this little guy hanging around the excavation site in our carpark. Nice surprise!! Probably checking out the large mound of soil and as a potential spot to dig a nest. It's a spotted Pardalote. Had to Google this one. 🤔 One of Australia's smallest birds. They build their nests in a long horizontal tunnel dug into the soil of creeks and embankments. They forage in the crowns of Eucalypt trees. 🐦🍃 #barraboolmazeestate #surfcoast #geelong #ceres #barrabool #maze #farm #country #gardens #nature #lovenature #wildlife #alwayssurprising #beauty #amazing #birdwatching #bird #nest #egg #newlife #chicks #microbird #pardalote #native #australia #australianbird #thelanddownunder #fascinatingnest #wonderfulworldofbirds #instabird

This is likeliest the rarest bird I will see - a forty-spotted pardalote. A 2016 estimate was that there were 1000-1500 left. They are endemic to Tasmania and are now found in only six separated populations. They also feed almost exclusively on the manna gum tree which were being lost to deforestation. Fortunately efforts are underway to reverse this. Inala Nature Reserve / @inalanaturetours on Bruny Island are an important part of this effort. I had a great tour with Kat and was able to see these pardalotes among many other birds. #wildlifephotography #birds #birdsofinstagram #birdphotography #birdphoto #audubonsociety #best_bird_shots #birdfreaks #birdsofaustralia #birdsoftasmania #australianwildlife #brunyisland #inalanaturetours #pardalote #fortyspottedpardalote #rarebirds #rare_birds

#wildlifewednesday ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ King parrot (female, you can tell by the green head), near Bellthorpe National Park in the hinterland of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, November 2018. This handsome gal is a wild bird, but clearly used to people as I was able to get quite close to her. The owners of the place where @stephen_porter_1968 and I were staying put out (wild bird) seeds for them. Feeding wild birds is controversial in Australia. Here, mild winters mean that wildlife can generally find enough food to survive on their own. In fact, the common wisdom in Australia is that feeding wild birds can do more harm than good. It can lead to dependency if birds become reliant on provided food rather than foraging for themselves. It spread disease if feeders that aren’t regularly cleaned, and because of closer-than-usual contact between the birds sharing the feeders, which can spread infection. And it can cause poor nutrition, if birds are being fed the wrong kinds of foods or aren’t getting a balanced diet as they would if foraging for themselves. But Darryl Jones, an urban ecology expert and a Professor and Queensland’s Griffith University, has different views. In his book on the subject - The Birds at My Table - he looks at the benefits of feeding birds, including allowing people living in urban environments to interact with nature, as well as the right way to do it, so as to avoid harm. Interesting read, changed my thinking🇦🇺 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @thebirdsatmytable ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #parrot #queensland #birdsofinstagram #ig_birdwatchers #birds_adored #birdfreaks #pardalote #birds_illife #birds_of_the_world #birds_private #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #earthcapture #igscwildlife #discover_wildlife #wildlifephoto #wildlifelovers #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth #wildlifelovers #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeaddicts #womenphotographers #feministsforconservation #fujixt2

Ironbark Ecologist drilling holes into a log to serve as Striated Pardalote breeding sites. Striated Pardalotes can utilise a range of breeding hollows, building cavities and holes in earth banks to build their nests. They spend their days foraging for insects and lerps in the canopy, hard to spot but very pretty little birds. 🌳🐧🌲 #bird #pardalote #breeding #treehollow #nest #melbourne #australianbirds #birdsofinstagram #fauna #urbanecology #conservation #wildlifeconservation #ecology #wildlifeecology #urbanbirds #urbanwildlife

Australian bush (or brush or scrub) turkey, standing in solidarity with its US ‘cousins’ on Turkey Day. You could probably eat these birds but I doubt you’d want to. The saying goes when you cook a bush turkey, throw away the bush turkey and eat the pot. Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it. Respect and a heartfelt wish for real social justice to those Native Americans who don’t.

#wildlifewednesday (Well, it’s Wednesday somewhere in the world even if it’s Thursday here.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Glaucous gull standing over its prey. Shot from a zodiac near the beach under Protektorfjellet (Protector Mountain), Spitsbergen, in the Svalbard archipelago. We saw two glaucous gulls taking out what turned out to be a juvenile kittiwake in mid-air, so manoeuvred towards the shore where we could see, fairly close up, one gull eating the kill. Pretty brutal, but that’s the cycle of life and survival in one of the harshest environments on the planet. Grateful we got to see...🇳🇴 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #svalbard #visitsvalbard #discoversvalbard #gull #seabird #birdsofinstagram #birds_adored #birdfreaks #pardalote #birds_illife #bestbirdshot #nature #perfect_birds #birds_of_the_world #birds_private #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #igscwildlife #discover_wildlife #naturelovers #wildlifephotography #wildlifephoto #wildlifelovers #earthfocus #wildlifeplanet #fujixt2 #raw_community #wildlifeaddicts #animal_captures

Yesterday while I was walking around our property this beauty landed on the fence and was just as curious about me as I of it and stayed visiting with me for some time. One of mother nature's magical moments. Spotted Pardalote's are one of my most favourite Australian Birds.

A few months ago we discovered that birds called Pardalotes are living in the side of our house and we now know that they have chicks. We know this as we have seen then flying around and making lots of noise, our house should be a wildlife sanctuary...

Spotted pardalote, male, Canberra, Australia. Black-shouldered kite, sub-adult, Werribee, Victoria, #Australia. Couldn't believe my luck in finding this bird sitting on a post by the roadside at the Western Treatment Plant. The bird sat there for 10 minutes while I took a series of photos.

Hellmayr’s pipit, perched on the red-brown earth of farmland behind Lake Titicaca. Shot through the window of a car, pulled up on the side of the road, during our 2016 journey through Peru and Chile. While quite widespread, this little bird has a peculiarly fragmented range, with populations in Patagonia and the coastal grasslands of South America’s southeast, as well as in the Altiplano and central Andes 🇵🇪 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #laketiticaca #titicaca #puno #peru #birdsofinstagram #ig_birds #feather_perfection #nuts_about_birds #birdnerd #neotropicalbirds #birds_adored #birdfreaks #birds_of_the_world #birdsofinstagram #birds_adored #birdfreaks #pardalote #birds_illife #bestbirdshot #perfect_birds #birds_of_the_world #birds_private #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #bird #earthcapture #earthfocus #exploretolearn #womenphotographers #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeaddicts #fujifilm

#peekaboo ! This gorgeour Spotted Pardalote was in my backyard the other day, making around 10 trips back and forth for nesting material. It didn't seem too bothered by me being right out in the open photographing it, it even came around 30cm away and checked me out before getting back to business. I got more video than I did photos (the light wasn't great and these things are FAST! and SMALL!) but they don't work well on insta :/ #birdnerd #bird #pardalote #ozbirds #birdsofinstagram #backyardbirds #beautiful

Today is the start of #movember. Movember is a worldwide initiative to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues such a prostate cancer and mental illnesss. I like to bring birds into this because they play an important part in my life, helping me destress and fight the blues. When I get out into the bush, looking and listening, I forget my troubles. I feel happy. If you would like to donate, my #movember link is in my bio. Any amount would be greatly appreciated by all us bros, even $1. It all adds up. This picture features a male spotted pardalote with a lovely mo. Sure, it is fake (nesting material) but he tried hard. Later in the month I’ll post a bird with a real mo #spottedpardalote #pardalote

This was going to be my final piece for my illustration course, but I just couldn’t finish it or love it like I love drawings that aren’t because I have to! So I submitted the next one, even though the eye isn’t quite in the right spot, I like it more because I loved making it! #nhi101x #coursecompleted #naturalhistoryillustration #birdillustration #scarletrobin #pardalote #keepdrawing

I've really enjoyed doing the Natural History Illustration class but it's coming to an end. This is the start of what might be my final submission drawing. There are a couple options which I may still investigate and then pick the best. Its been great to get back into my graphite drawing and learn a few new techniques. #nhi2018 #birdillustrations #drawings #pardalote #sketchingtime #birds #australianartist #australianbirdsofinstagram #adelaidehills #adelaideartist

Striated Pardalote (Pardalotus striatus). Was wandering the bush and found old mate in the video calling above me. They were protecting their nest in the hollows of the tree. Then at my feet, I found the remains of one of their brethren. Simultaneously beautiful and sad. A chance meeting of a bird previously elusive for me. • • • • • • • • • • #nature #outdoors #bird #birding #twitcher #twitching #pardalote #tasmania #australia #skull #birdskull #vultureculture #oddities #bones #wings #birdwings #feathers #feather #death #forest #striatedpardalote #birdphotography #photography

The Striated pardalote (Pardolutus striatus) might be the least spectacular of all, it’s always a joy to find them when feeding on lerp in the lower canopy.

Bird walk today at Inala Private Reserve on Bruny Island for the Bruny Island Bird Festival. Its was a great morning with Nick leading the walk. He was so knowledgeable and we saw lots of birds. This is a 40 Spotted Pardalote which is endangered. So great to see these birds in a healthy environment at the Inala property. #brunyislandbirdfestival #inalanaturetours #brunyisland #bruny #birdstasmania #brunyislandbirds #tasmania #birdsaustralia #pardalote #tassie #discovertasmania #igersbrisbane #igersaustralia #olympusau #olympusinspired #olympusomdem1markii #fortyspottedpardalote

Just a hole in the ground? Unless you were specifically looking for it, you would easily walk past it. I accidentally flushed the cutest pair of Spotted Pardalote’s (Pardalotus punctatus) out of their nest hole. I sat back poised trying to get a photo of them returning but they were just too quick.

Spring'ing into nature with Campbelltown City Council. What a great day to take an educational bush walk at Noorumba Reserve. It had rained in the morning, there's always something special about being in the bush after rain with plenty of frogs calling, including the Bleating Tree Frog; which eluded our sights but was calling loudly. Other highlights included lots of Swamp Wallabies, flowering native peas and blooming bush tucker, everyone had a fab time! Thanks for coming along and a special thank you to Campbelltown City Council Bush care for having us along. #campbelltowncitycouncil #campbelltowncitycouncilbushcare #wildlife #fauna #education #bushwalk #sydney #southwestsydney #beautiful #nature #wombat #pardalote #shale #cumberlandplainwoodland #spring #wildsideaustralia #australia #conservationthrougheducation
