Lesser scaup.  In winter often seen on lakes and bays in dense flocks, numbering hundreds or even thousands, and often with no other species of ducks associated with them. Someone forgot to invite this lonely one! #scaup #lesserscaup #dingdarling #floridawildlife #feather_features #birdinginflorida #wildlifephotography #nikon #birdsofinstagram #birds_adored

Tones of Home (Field Sparrow). If asked why I like "boring little brown birds" I would have to say it's because I don't find them boring at all. Hawks, Owls and Falcons may reign supreme for striking awe into our hearts, and North America's colorful Wood Warblers may get all the Ooo's and Ah's, but for me, there is no package more pleasing than the one contained in the earth-toned plumage of the New World Sparrows (Family Emberizidae). I even love the word "sparrow" which originates from the Anglo-Saxon "spearwa" meaning "flutterer" and my favorite genus of flutteters is the Spizella genus. In this genus you will find American Tree Sparrow, Chipping Sparrow, Clay-colored Sparrow, Black-chinned and Brewer's Sparrow, and of course, the Field Sparrow. Admittedly, there is no outstanding feature about the Field Sparrow that impresses the eye, and even Roger Tory Peterson accused the Field Sparrow as having a "blank stare". But for me it is the lack of wow-factor that warrants closer observation and leads to more intimate knowledge. I mean when one of your key field marks is a pale eye ring, you need to be really taking the time to look at this bird, soaking in the soft browns and grays, and asking yourself the key questions about what it is you are exactly seeing. And isn't that the whole idea? Isn't that what led me to making this very image? #fieldsparrow #spizellapusilla #passerines

Following up on the Snowy Owl Pellet post from a a few weeks ago, hard to believe all of this can be contained in one little Pellet. Thank you to some friends at the @fieldmuseum for taking this apart. They think the bones are from some duck. I have no idea which species, but if I had to guess I would go with a Red-Breasted Merganser based on how many I have seen this year. Zoom in on the pic, you can see a skull, back vertebrae, and other nummies. #bestbirdshots #audubon #birds #kings_birds #nuts_about_birds #birdsofinstagram #birding #birdfreaks #bird_brilliance #wildlifephotography #nature_brilliance #onlyowls #jc_wings #nature_sultans #feather_features #wildlifefriend #wildlifeplanet #kings_birds #wildlife_seekers #nature_perfection #birdextreme #allmightybirds #ourplanetdaily #allnatureshots @your_best_birds #thetweetsuites #audubonsociety #excellent_nature

Hairy Woodpeckers, like most other woodpeckers, feed mostly on insects and larvae. They sometimes follow Pileated Woodpeckers and visit the holes chiseled by them to clean out any goodies that may have been left behind. These birds help control insects that are destructive to our orchards, forests, crops, and shade trees. Thankfully they are common,  widespread and listed as a species of 'Least Concern' on the IUCN Red List of Endangered Animals.

You'll find these magnificent birds around many coastal regions in Australasia.

I almost didn't see this beautiful barred owl a couple evenings ago. Pleistocene fossils of Barred Owls, at least 11,000 years old, have been dug up in Florida, Tennessee, and Ontario.-All about Birds.  #barredowl #owlsofinstagram #feather_features #birdinginflorida #floridawildlife #wildlifephotography #nikon #naples #naplesflorida
