Daniel J. Field  I take pictures of wild birds and write papers about dead ones.

i) One of my favorite photos ended up on the cover of ii) one of my favorite journals supporting iii) one of the papers I’m most proud of! Oh, and it’s one the coolest birds on Earth, the Shoebill (Balaeniceps rex), a colossal gargoyle restricted to the swamps of central Africa. Our paper (with @jakeberv) tries to understand what happened to bird evolution in the aftermath of the K-Pg mass extinction event (the one that wiped out non-avian dinosaurs). #biology #wildlifephotography #evolution #paleontology #paleo #fossil #shoebill #bird @swarovskioptik_nature @nikon_global

This is a great time of year back home in Alberta, as Snowy Owls (Bubo scandiacus) return to the prairies from their breeding grounds in the arctic. The farmland east of Calgary must be one of the best places on Earth to see them consistently! One of the world’s best birds, hands down. #alberta #owlberta #biology #wildlifephotography #_kings_birds #owl #snowyowl #calgary #drumheller #paleontology #paleo #kings_birds @swarovskioptik_nature @your_best_birds @nikon_global @audubonsociety

Cotingas are an amazing group of birds from the New World tropics, some of which are among the craziest looking birds on Earth. This one is a Purple-throated Fruitcrow (Querula purpurata) from the Ecuadorian Amazon, which was displaying its fancy throat patch for the surrounding lady fruitcrows. It was an amazing experience to witness! #biology #wildlifephotography #digiscope #amazon #paleontology @kings_birds_ @your_best_birds @swarovskioptik_nature

Hope everyone had a good start to the week! Here’s a Yellow-chevroned Parakeet (Brotogeris cheriri), taking in the world from a different perspective. Parrots are awesome! #biology #wildlifephotography @nikon_global @swarovskioptik_nature @your_best_birds @kings_birds_ #paleontology #paleo #evolution

Moving slowly this Saturday morning. This guy knows what I’m talking about. Northern elephant seal (Mirounga angustirostris), Point Reyes National Seashore, January 2013. #sealedwithayawn #wildlifephotography #evolution #paleo #paleontology #biology #seal @swarovskioptik_nature @nikon_global

One of the coolest birds out there, this is the Cape Sugarbird (Promerops cafer). There are only two species of sugarbird, and both are endemic to narrow regions in southern Africa. As their name implies, they are sugar fiends (like me), and specialize on the yummy nectar of beautiful protea inflorescences like the one this individual is perched on. #wildlifephotography #evolution #paleo #birdwatching #paleontology @adeblocq @fms.fossils @kings_birds_ @nikon_global @swarovskioptik_nature @your_best_birds @birdsofsouthafrica

Grey Go-away-bird chowing down! As the name suggests, Go-away-birds (Corythaixoides) have... ‘attractive’ calls, but despite that are really fun to observe. Like all turacos (my favourite bird family), these birds are mainly fruit-eaters, as modeled very obligingly by this individual in South Africa. #wildlifephotography #evolution #paleo #birdwatching #paleontology @birdsofsouthafrica @your_best_birds @swarovskioptik_nature @nikon_global @kings_birds_ @fms.fossils @adeblocq

Plover party tonight! Jenny and I have dinner plans with Tamas Szekely, world expert on the plover family (Charadriidae). Here’s a nice plover to celebrate—a Crowned Lapwing (Vanellus coronatus) from Kruger National Park, South Africa, seen with @adeblocq and @fms.fossils back in June. #wildlifephotography #evolution #birdwatching #paleontology #paleo #plover @nikon_global @swarovskioptik_nature @your_best_birds @birdsofsouthafrica @kings_birds_

Donacobius double vision! These South American birdies (Donacobius atricapilla) are all alone in their family, but are most closely related to drab songbirds from the Old World. This pair from the Brazilian Pantanal was in the midst of an amazing and hilarious display, complete with coordinated songs and dance moves. #wildlifephotography #evolution #birdwatching #paleontology @your_best_birds @swarovskioptik_nature @nikon_global @biodiverse_brazil_tours

Here’s a cool bird! This is a Black-winged Kite (Elanus caeruleus), proudly guarding a fence post near De Hoop Wildlife Reserve in South Africa. Love their amazing red eyes! @nikon_global @swarovskioptik_nature @your_best_birds @kings_birds_ @birdsofsouthafrica #evolution #birdwatching #paleontology #paleo #birds #kite #raptor @dehoopreserve

A long-promised squamate for @stephwinton! This is a (probable) flap-necked chameleon (Chamaeleo dilepis), in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda. Really cute! Sadly wasn’t quick enough on the draw to catch it snatching an insect, but it was super cool to observe! #evolution #paleontology #wildlifephotography #lizard #chameleon @swarovskioptik_nature @nikon_global

Weekend kingfisher! This is a Malachite Kingfisher (Alcedo cristata): teeny-tiny but extremely beautiful! This species is found around wetlands all across sub-Saharan Africa. I photographed this one from a canoe outside Entebbe, Uganda. @your_best_birds @kings_birds_ @nikon_global @swarovskioptik_nature #evolution #birdwatching #paleo #paleontology #birds
