The Cutest Race ~ Back in the spring I photographed a small flock of Canada Geese with their tiny goslings just outside my home. I caught this pair running across the grass in what looked like a race with the leader flapping its barely there wings in hopes for more speed. The light was just right on this day with the sun being filtered through some thin clouds to make some soft bu very directional light which worked out nicely. It's great when you only have to step out of your door to get some wildlife photos. Taken in Clementon, New Jersey. ~ 4/23/17 ~ 1/1600 sec at f/4.0 on Manual ~ ISO 400 ~ at 500 mm using a 500 mm f/4 on a NIKON D4S #wildlife_inspired #your_best_birds #instanature #nuts_about_birds #bb_of_ig #wildplanetphotomag #ig_discover_wildlife #instanaturefriends #wildlife_perfection #animalelite #instanature #wildlifephotography #bns_birds #kings_birds #nuts_about_birds #bestnatureshots #wildlifephotography #nature_of_our_world #bns_nature #feather_perfection #nature_brilliance #naturephotoportal #nakedplanet #birds_adored #bird_brilliance #naturephotography #canadagoose #gosling #cute #wildnewjersey
Ah yes, I heard there were peanuts on this deck... đŸ„œđŸ„œđŸ„œ #bluejay #kthxbye #nutsaboutbirds #thepeckdeck
Least sandpiper. Of all the "peeps", they are the easiest to identify as they are the only ones with yellow legs. And I believe that this is a juvenile because its feathers are bright and not worn. But I could be wrong about that last part, lol! ... #bird_brilliance #birds_illife #birds_captures #birds_adored #eye_spy_birds #sassy_birds #kings_birds #pocket_birds #perfect_birds #total_birds #picturetokeep_birds_animals #ip_birds #bns_birds #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #your_best_birds #best_birds_of_ig #ig_discover_birdslife #fowl_waterfowl #excellent_nature #animals_captures #nature_of_our_world #wms_animals #efe_nature_or_nothing
Red-breasted nuthatch (Sitta canadensis) perches for a moment between bouts of searching for insects and seeds in a coniferous and deciduous forest. Despite a competition for food types also preferred by chickadees, nuthayches often flock and forage with them. One reason for this interspecies match-up is that the nuthatch takes advantage of a chickadee threat alarm system, consisting of specific calls warning other chickadees that predators are in the area. Experimental studies (Templeton CN and Greene E, Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci, 104(13), 2007, 5479-5482) demonstrate that nuthatches respond appropriately to the subtly different types of chickadee threat signals for large raptors, a mild threat because large birds cannot easily negotiate a dense tangle of branches, and small raptors, a major threat because small raptors can navigate the tangle. Although interspecies eavesdropping on predator alerts is not that unusual in the world of animals, the nuthatches' ability to correctly interpret the meaning of different types of warning signals is a remarkably nuanced example of the phenomenon. ...

Oriental Pratincole (Scientific name Glareola maldivarum) clicked near Gurgaon, Haryana! These beautifully patterned & coloured birds are also known as the grasshopper bird since they feed on grasshoppers! They typically hunt their insect prey on the wing like swallows, although they can also feed on the ground. The Oriental Pratincole is a bird of open country, and they are often seen near water in the evening, hawking for insects! Hunting pressure, habitat loss and degradation are the main threats that may endanger the survival of these pratincole species. . . #birdsofinstagram #birdsofindia #bestbirdshots #perfect_birds #ig_best_birds #ig_discover_birdslife #bird_brilliance #best_birds_of_ig #bns_birds #birds #nature #naturelovers #wildlife #delhincr #gurgaon #photographer #sanjay_singhs
