Bluebird bluebird sitting on a log, this is a song with no epilogue...
.
... i’m getting stir crazy - we leave for a camping trip on vancouver island tomorrow and the packing and organizing is real! while there are no mountain bluebirds on vancouver island, the incredible intersections of ocean and forest make for some exciting nature watching. maybe i’ll branch out and photograph some more mammals...
.
anywho, i’ll be in touch and sharing all my experiences. for now, enjoy this awesome bluebird.

Backyard tales
jack grackle, you must have heard,
is a highly intelligent bird.
he turns and he preens,
til he's handsome and clean,
and his feathers so black, they are blue.

king of the fountain in the blazing sun.
a splash in the bowl and now he's done.
his cooling throne, he will not share.
then, like a flash he takes to the air,
with his feathers so black, they are blue

Sorry for the double post today, couldn't resist since today is international owl awareness day! 🦉 i never thought i would get to see a wild owl, and because of this hobby i've been able to see 3 different species! seeing them is addicting and some of the most fun i've ever had in photography.

short eared owl, february 2020, nj

The sulawesi streaked flycatcher (muscicapa sodhii)

it is a small passerine bird in the old world flycatcher family. it has only been recorded in sulawesi, where it is known to breed.

_

it appears not to be endangered, being less sensitive to disturbance than many of southeast asia's forest-dependent birds.

_

the species was first announced in 1999 but no formal description was included in the report. its latin name, muscicapa sodhii, was given in honor of navjot sodhi (1962-2011), an indian ornithologist and conservationist.

_

the sulawesi streaked flycatcher looks similar to the grey-streaked flycatcher, which lives part of the year in sulawesi, but breeds in northern asia.

_

genetically, it is more closely related to the thai population of asian brown flycatcher m. dauurica siamensis...

The crested bellbird; photographed at kalli station in october. i have always known this one as the morse code bird, but had never actually seen one despite being very familiar with it's beautiful call. it is a sound i grew up with, embedded in the background of my childhood, a reassuring do do do-do doot, do do do-do doot, over and over in clear bell notes that ring through the landscape. in the desert it is almost always the first sound of the day, reliably there at first light, day after day. this bird can throw its voice, the sound will seem very close, then moves, backward, forward, left and right making it very difficult to identify where the bird actually is!! it is one of the things i love about the sound, it moves, at times it would be all around and just when you thought you had it figured out, it shifted!! interesting how much sound and smell embed in our mind and link to emotion. whenever i hear the sound of the morse code bird i feel safe, i know i am home in the desert, on the country i love. i get the same feeling when i smell dust and rain and particular flowers!! this is a difficult bird to photograph, mostly because it is so hard to find, so i was extremely happy to see movement in the mulga trees and a flash of white and black, this image was captured through a gap in the branches when he emerged and perched momentarily with a wild look in his eye and ruffled crest!! captured with my nikon d850 and nikon 80-400mm lens. settings were; iso 320, 400mm, f8, 1/2000. #planetbirds #wildlifeplanet #seeaustralia #earthcapture #wildlifeplanet #naturyst #birdsonearth #bestbirdshots #exclusive_bird #eye_spy_birds #kings_birds_ #nuts_about_birds #bird_freaks #best_birds_of_ig #your_best_birds #bb_of_ig #birds_of_instagram #bestnatureshots #best_birds_of_world #bird_brilliance #feather_perfection #birds_adored #birdlifeoz #melissazappelli #melissazappelliphotography #wildwingimages #birdphotography #wildlifephotography #crestedbellbird #bellbird

Oh my goodness! how could i have almost missed owl awareness day! if there is any redeeming part of 2020 for me, it’s been these guys. i saw, and photographed my first owl the day after my birthday in january. it was a snowy owl (still the only one i’ve seen and was beyond lucky to have caught it) and the experience set me on a journey that i can genuinely say has changed my life (sorry for the cheese but it’s true). i was enchanted, and felt the kind of magic and bewilderment i hadn’t felt since i was a kid. it reminded me of one of my favorite quotes by howard thurman— “don't ask yourself what the world needs. ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” i went home, began researching wildlife lenses and have not looked back since. i have owls to thank for this spark of inspiration i so needed, and not that any instagram post could possibly do justice to their awesomeness, but here is one of my favorite owl moments of 2020- a fresh faced barred owlet on the verge of fledging from its nest, basking in the sunshine. here’s to looking up 💛🙌🏻☀️

I tried to be artsy here. @ed_uscg_longforthesea had a wonderful suggestion as to how to photograph this resting great blue heron. i used my 200-500mm nikkor lens at 200mm. even at that length i was almost falling off the boardwalk since the heron was about 10 feet away. my intent was to get the heron framed within the hibiscus blooms in the forefront. as you can see, i only got the right side blooms in this capture. your critique of this capture is welcome in the comments.

Happy wrensday ❤️🖤 here's a little pop of colour to brighten your day. red-backed fairy-wrens are the smallest fairy-wrens and are usually found in grassland habitats close to rivers and coastal areas, along the northern and eastern coastlines. this exquisitely coloured male popped out into the open for just a few seconds whilst i was up near wyndham recently. we often heard and saw quite a few females, non-breeding males and young birds, which lack the colouration of the dominant male. their glossy black feathers contrasting with bright red on the back and r**p make them quite the sight to behold.
