A Wilson’s Warbler hunts and collects insects through an understory full of ferns. Lying on the ground surrounded by a lush forest full of greenery, I sat and watched a confusion of warblers hover and swoop and flitter in a flash all around me. I didn’t bother trying to photograph in the beginning. I just sat and enjoyed the challenge in my mind. When I finally decided to photograph this group which was perfectly content with this patch of forest, I picked up on some routine movements and really enjoyed the show… How depressing would this world be without birds. Currently one of the most important conservation measures this country has ever adopted, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, which is celebrating its 100th Anniversary, is being gutted in a most despicable way. The current administration has already vastly eroded this cornerstone conservation law. Companies like big energy corporations are no longer held accountable for their impacts on bird deaths; it’s no surprise they lobbied hard for gutting the law. “Seventeen former Interior officials, including U.S. Fish and Wildlife directors under presidents Richard Nixon, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, repudiated the reinterpretation when it was first announced in December” according to the Washington Post. In this 100th Year, it falls upon a new generation to pull together and speak out against these dishonorable and reckless environmental decisions.
The main target for this past weekend’s  trip was to observe Lesser Prairie Chickens. This video captures just a snippet of the action. Observing  these birds on a lek (a gathering site where males strut, dance  and fight in order to mate with females each spring) is one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had in nature. We watched over 20 birds, starting before first light and for several hours into early morning. LEPC populations have decreased over 90 % since the mid twentieth century,  and are vulnerable to habitat loss, fire (there was a 60,000 acre wildfire near this site last week), drought and misguided federal officials who feel that profit Trumps science. Many thanks to Grant Beauprez and the NM Department of Fish and Game for protecting and monitoring these incredible animals.

One of the world's most colorful birds is our pick for #spectacularsunday. Toucan Barbet -- a species of the western Andes in Colombia and Ecuador -- has an interesting habit of squeezing nectar out of tubular flowers with its bill while holding the flower with its feet! The birds are resident in several ABC-supported reserves in Colombia. .

I don’t see many people taking the picture of this birds, even though the will be in the background of most pictures, May be they are in abundance. I wanted a picture of this beauty anyways 😍😍😍 American Coot
Wing formation ,  immature White Ibis
American Bittern, It is a well-camouflaged, solitary brown bird that unobtrusively inhabits marshes and the coarse vegetation at the edge of lakes and ponds. The number of birds getting lower due to decrease in wetlands and ponds . Lucky to see these amazing birds.

March 17th - Red-bellied Woodpecker. She raised a family in our yard this year. I thought they might all get together for a family portrait but it wasn’t to be.  #birds_ilife #eye_spy_birds #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #nature_brillance #feather_perfection #bird_brillance #kings_birds_ #excellent_nature #bird_captures #fiftyshades_of_nature #ip_connect #ig.animalkingdom #spotwild #birds_matter #nikontop #sassy_birds #americanbirdconservancy #birdfreaks #nature #anythingfeathered #bird_watchers_daily #photoarena_nature #almightybirds #birding_lounge #thetweetsuites #everydaybirdlovers #audubonsociety #birdielicious

I became a little obsessed with the leading edge of a bird’s wing after one of my students told me about a #coopershawk that #died after #hitting a #window on campus..... check out #americanbirdconservancy and #glasscollisions for solutions you can take to reduce this huge problem.........swipe to see the adult bird but be warned that it isn’t alive. We will incorporate this #bird into the #teaching #collection • • • • https://abcbirds.org/program/glass-collisions/ #animalconservation #animals #birds #birdconservation #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #birdsofinstagram #accipiter #wildlifephotography #birdphotography #conservation #feathers #hawk #raptor #birdofprey #psuwildlife @psuecosystems  @agsciences
