Of course, we did some birding while doing Bluebird nest boxes. I added Rusty Blackbirds, and a Winter Wren to my year list. Up to 103, and only 12 more needed before February 1st. This little Carolina Chickadee stole the show by being unbelievably cute while hanging from Sweet Gum balls and calling sweetly. Birding and hanging out with @irmoteach, today could not have been better! #ebird #thebirdingranger #cornelllabofornithology #americanbirdingassociation #twitcher #birds #birder #birdingfriends

The bottom of the mountain was much less windy and cold - and the lake provided the perfect background for a meetup pic! 🗓 We only had 4 1/2 days in CO, but we sure did make the most of it for a completely epic trip! In that short time, we had meetups for the second time with @wide_lens_photography , @corvus_latrans , and @the_traveling_hat (in this photo) and met @nicetwitchphotography and @naturenate80 (both pictured here) for the first time. 🤝 We really love our IG meetups and have made so many amazing close friendships around the world.... and we have so many more planned for this coming year! 🙌🏻 Sorry to be so mushy but we really love you guys! 🌎 #weloveourfollowers #truefriendships #igmeetups #naturelovers #echolake #colorado #welovecolorado #mountevans #mtevans #wildlifecouple #birdnerds #birdingfriends #birdingcouple #goals #travelcouple #friendsforlife #greattrip #explore #beautifulplace #nikonp900 at Echo Lake Park

Adorable juvenile Pied-billed Grebe seen with some nice birders I met today. Lots of the local birders are coming to the refuge to see the Rusty Blackbirds I found. It's hard to avoid succumbing to serious camera envy! #piedbilledgrebe #juvenile #grebe #birds #birders #birdersofig #birdersofinstagram #birding #birdingtexas #birdsoftexas #sanbernardnwr #wildliferefuge #birding_lounge #birdlovers #birdstagram #instabird #canon #powershotsx50hs #cameraenvy #letsgobirding #birdingfriends #nature at San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge

Common Crane in flight In Ireland, despite being extinct for over 200 years, the common crane plays a very important part in Irish culture and folklore and so thus recent efforts to encourage it back to Ireland are received with much enthusiasm. The Kranich Museum in Hessenburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany, is dedicated to art and folklore related to the common crane. The common crane is the sacred bird of the god Hephaestus, and it features heavily in the god's iconography. . . . #wildlifphotography #naturephotography #birdphotography #birds_adored #pocket_birds #birdinflight #birdingfriends #birdsofinstagram #commoncrane #crane #birds_adored #bird_captures #indianwildlifeofficial #planetearth #birding #birdwatching #nikon #nikonindia #wild #india #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #nikon #nikonindia #thebirdingsquad #best_birds_planet #jc_wings

Modern technology and social media has made the birding community around the world a much closer group in more recent years resulting in the forging of many friendships across the planet... It was great to catch up with our friends from Wales, Alan and Ruth, of The Biggest Twitch fame, last night in Cape Town and chat about all things birding! They spend most of their lives travelling the world birding (which always leaves us super green!!) so it was fantastic to have them in our part of the world for a change. Alan and Ruth, great to see you - let's not wait quite so long before the next catch up...😉 #birdingfriends @margarethardaker at Barristers Grill, Cafe & Pub | Newlands

Tropical Kingbird in Tofino. I came for the pelagics, and stayed for the neotropics. What an incredible place. Thinking too of my Alaskan birding friends searching for their own Tropical Kingbird, a bird to watch for anywhere along the coast. Tomorrow, if the weather holds, I’ll be offshore with @lenaware @joachimbertrands @blairdudeck @parzudak @bcbirdergirl @siobhandarling. Thanks to everyone for a fantastic trip to the coast. #tubenoses4ever #lovepterodroma #pelagicbirding #bcbirds #tofino #thayersgull #amphitritepoint #birdingfriends #birdingvi #tropicalkingbird #palmwarbler #yukonbirder #coastalheart at Tofino, British Columbia

A female Fire-tailed Sunbird It is found in the northern parts of the Indian subcontinent, primarily in the Himalayas, and also in some adjoining regions in Southeast Asia. The species occurs in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand and Tibet. Its natural habitats are temperate forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. Males reach a length of 15 cm. including their long tail; females are about two-thirds that length. They live in conifer forests at altitudes up to 4,000 meters, descending into the valleys during the cold season. They eat insects, and also nectar. Both parents take part in feeding the young. . . . #wildlifphotography #naturephotography #birdphotography #birding #eye_spy_birds #birdingfriends #jc_wings #birds #sunbird #firetailedsunbird #thebirdingsquad #pocket_birds #birdsofinstagram #himalalayas #nepal #chitwannationalpark #colours #biodiversity #naturalhistory #sanctusryasia #natureinfocus #nif at Chitwan National Park चितवन राष्ट्रिय निकुञ्ज

Greater Goldenback - Female The greater flameback (Chrysocolaptes guttacristatus) also known as greater goldenback, large golden-backed woodpecker or Malherbe's golden-backed woodpecker occurs widely in the Indian subcontinent, eastwards to southern China, the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra, western and central Java and northeast Borneo. Like other woodpeckers, the greater flameback uses its bill to dig out food from trees and its zygodactyl feet and stiff tail to provide support against tree trunks. The long tongue can be darted forward to extract wood-boring arthropod prey; while mainly feeding on small invertebrates, greater flamebacks will also drink nectar. They nest in tree holes, laying three or four white eggs. . . . #wildlifphotography #birdphotography #birdingfriends #birding #birdwatching #pocket_birds #indianwildlifeofficial #eye_spy_birds #woodpecker #forest #planetearth #wild #avian #birds_adored #birdsofinstagram #travelphotography #naturephotography #birds_ig #bird_captures #india #westernghats #your_best_birds #thebirdingsquad #coonoor at Coonoor, India

Indian Paradise Flycatcher- Male . . The Indian paradise flycatcher (Terpsiphone paradisi) is a medium-sized passerine bird native to Asia that is widely distributed. Indian paradise flycatchers are noisy birds uttering sharp skreek calls. They have short legs and sit very upright whilst perched prominently, like a shrike. They are insectivorous and hunt in flight in the understorey. In the afternoons they dive from perches to bathe in small pools of water. They are migratory and spend the winter season in tropical Asia. There are resident populations in southern India and Sri Lanka, hence both visiting migrants and the locally breeding subspecies occur in these areas in winter. . . #wildlifphotography #birdphotography #birdingfriends #birding #birdwatching #pocket_birds #indianwildlifeofficial #eye_spy_birds #flycatcher #indianparadiseflycatcher #forest #planetearth #wild #avian #birds_adored #birdsofinstagram #vasai #travelphotography #naturephotography #birds_ig #bird_captures #india #maharashtra #westernghats at Vasai
