So at work I'm using a neat map and data set (thanks @travisheckford) that tries to identify promising areas for bird habitat conservation using a combination of our screening criteria such as wetland type, zoning, size, and biodiversity data (mostly bird sightings, because that's what is most available). This map identified an odd tiny green corner tucked way back into suburbia as an interesting spot. I knew there was a stream there and what looked like a little wetland but was curious to see for myself what had happened there. Ohhhhhhh i see........some very aggressive mallard, black ducks, domestics, hybrids, and all manner of angry waterfowl pecking at my boots. . On one hand it's kind of sad for the biologist in me to see huge quantities of non-native and domestic birds taking over this itty bitty patch of habitat, and to watch a set of weird behaviours caused by people feeding them. (And also lament the fact that I see fewer ducks out 'in the wild' doing their natural, wild, duckly things because so many will quickly learn to spend almost all their time in urban parks). But the more light-hearted (less bird snooty) side of me remembers that I'm an invasive species in this landscape too - and that the sight of hundreds and hundreds of cold hungry ducks determinedly waddling in from every direction DID kind of make my day. Plus seemingly no pigeons here (yet?!) so there's an extra star for that. . . #wildlifewednesdays #wildlife #wildlifewednesday #duck #ducks #waterfowl #waterfowlwednesday #urbanwildlife #celebrateurbanbirds #urbanbirds #fieldwork #fieldday #mallard #mallards #greenhead #greenheads #hybrids #americanblackduck #blackduck #fallbirds #yyt #duckfeeding #pond #citylife #citybirds #stjohnsnl #conservation #habitat #ehjv

The holiday season can get busy, and, well, a little stressful, especially if you're navigating a peanut (or any) allergy - why not give the gift of a backyard full of birds in the form of (certified peanut free!!) seeds that will attract all sorts of them. There's nothing like walking past, or staring out, a window and watching birds just being birds to ease some stress (there's studies that prove as much). It does wonders to calm, and brighten, the day. (Available on Amazon in Canada and the USA. Eligible for Prime & Amazon Smile.

Kingfisher. 12/24 - half way towards #Christmas on the #ChristmasCountdown! . These are not common in #Stockholm, but every now and then a kingfisher sticks around. #Tyresö, some 15 km southeast of Stockholm, is one of the better places to visit in the winter months to look for these absolutely stunning birds. .

Any time of year, but especially in the winter with snowflakes sparkling, birds add so much magic and wonder to your backyard or balcony. Besides the benefits to the birds when you provide them with high quality seed to enjoy (keep your feeders squeaky clean), the benefits to the humans in the house are pretty wonderful, too. When you can look out your window and see (and hear) birds just being birds it allows a moment to just be in the moment, and I dare you not to smile when you see a chickadee swoop in with a giggle and grab a sunflower seed.

December 11 means 11/24 on my #Christmascountdown of #urbannature from #Stockholm. This is where I live. And if you think it's weird that the countdown ends December 24, it's because in this little boreal corner of the Earth, December 24 is the day we celebrate Christmas. . This is a #nutcracker (#nötkråka), a stunning small relative to the #crows. Nutcrackers are mnemonic wizards as they store thousands of nuts in the autumn, and recover these throughout winter and spring. This way they can reap benefits from the autumn mass occurrence of food during the hardships of winter. And, they are stunning. . These birds don't breed inside Stockholm, but sometimes they are observed here. This nutcracker paid a visit to one of #Stockholm's neighbor municipalities in February 2014. For some time it was hanging out around a large Macedonian pine (Pinus peuce) which was full of cones. Excellent nutcracker food. . #naturfotograferna #naturfoto #naturphoto #naturephoto #naturephotography #birding #birdwatching #urbanbirds #urbanbirding #urbanwildlife #urbannature #photoart #Sweden #birdbehaviour #winter #water #visitstockholm #Lidingö  #christmascountdown2018 #corvids

#PiedTriller I read somewhere that the Pied Triller population is decreasing. Please, let's create and fight for more green spaces in urban areas.

My little mate, the speckled dove I found on the footpath yesterday, was euthanised humanely overnight. @richmondvetclinic found he had total nerve paralysis probably after crashing in flight into a window or a car. Beautiful, but not overly smart, these guys last 15 years in captivity but only 3-5 years in the wild, especially the urban jungle of @richmond_3121. Such things we have to accept as we cannot change them. At least I eased his suffering and I’m grateful for that opportunity. #movingon #nature #urbanbirds #birdsofinstagram #wild #free #sooky
