American kestrel, falco sparverius. a male american kestrel has just broken off hovering while looking for prey on the ground. he is on his way to choose another hovering spot. this beautiful raptor is both the most widespread and the smallest falcon found in north america. while small, they are efficient predators of large insects and small vertebrates, including birds, reptiles, and mammals. these males are my favorite falcons. i just love their awesome colors.

Spotted dove

these birds are common residents of the indian sub-continent. the feed primarily on cereals, seeds, fruits, etc. apart from worms, insects and flies.

they have a relatively longer tail and white spots on the black collar on the shoulder which gives them their name.

it is also called mountain dove, spotted turtle-dove or pearl-necked dove.

I mentioned earlier that the focus of my recent trip to ecuador was the hummingbirds. there are so many — about 160 species just in ecuador! this one is a buff-tailed coronet, and this was his perch, which he protected fiercely. he was so possessive of this particular branch, it gave me a wonderful opportunity to take many photos of him, like this one. 🇪🇨.

I haven’t been posting much on here recently because, well i’ve been editing a lot and been very busy.
but don’t worry, it’s about to get very naturey over here asap. 🦗🌊✨🌄🌲
↟
as a token of my gratitude, enjoy these black-and-red broadbills (cymbirhynchus macrorhynchos) from the danum valley in malaysian borneo. ↟
they are absolutely breathtaking and exquisite, i hope you like black and red on birds as much as i do! 😍😍
↟
as always, big love from 💗 @birdsbybijs •_•_•_•_•_•_•_•_•_•_•_•

Another bird that might be evil (look at that expression) is the grey-headed mollymawk (thalassarche chrysostoma). @leonberardnz organised a bunch of photographers to go out on boat into cook strait to look for pelagic birds like this! it was a super exciting day, despite the sea sickness.
bird fact: grey-headed mollymawks prefer cold, deep water zones, including the waters off the coast of aotearoa and the bottom of the marianas trench. their diet consists of krill, giant squid, wayward deep ocean explorers, and fish.

Did you know that pigeons, like mammals, have milk glands, and both male and female parent will breastfeed their hatchlings for the first few days? this is a western crowned pigeon, a species endemic to new guinea and one of the largest pigeon species. they are terrestrial birds, eating fallen fruit, seeds and snails. they make the effort to fly only to find a safe branch for the night. like all pigeons they have a small head (hence, 'pigeon brain' is more of an insult than 'bird brain"), but in both males and females it is decorated with a big crest. *

Did you know you are not supposed to call a female of this species a peacock? they're peahens. i am sure that knowledge will come useful. some day. perhaps. the males have magnificent plumage because the females rule the roost and select who to mate with. if males do not show off, their genes will not survive. any resemblance to real existing persons is purely coincidental.
