Mike Ashbee  I am a wildlife photographer currently residing in the picturesque setting of New Zealand. All images are mine ©️Thank you.@mikullashbee

I always associate the Northern Cardinal with a snowy winter scene on a holiday greeting card, however these birds also inhabit the arid deserts of the southern states. This bird was photographed in the Rio grande valley in south Texas.#allmightybirds #bird_lovers_daily #pocket_birds #bns_birds #birdsofinstagram #your_best_birds #your_best_bird #bird_brilliance #kings_birds_ #kings_birds #cardinal #texasbirds #perfect_birds #bird_perfection #total_birds #birdfreaks #birdwatching #riograndevalley #best_birds_of_ig #bb_of_ig #animal_sultans #wildlife_perfection #nuts_about_birds #birds_adored #birds_illife

A Morepork or Ruru is a native species to New Zealand. Almost anytime I’ve been camping in New Zealand I hear these guys calling through the night. They are abundant but sightings can be surprisingly sparse. This is a youngster I found out in the middle of the day on the Kapiti coast. He/She was very curious and soon mom was around to keep her eye out for its safety. #allmightybirds #birdsofinstagram #bird_lovers_daily #pocket_birds #bns_birds #kings_birds_ #your_best_birds #animal_sultans #bb_of_ig #newzealand🇳🇿 #newzealandbirds #morepork #ruru #planetbirds #best_birds_of_ig #forestandbird #nzgeo #nzwildlife #bird_brilliance #bird_lovers #bird_captures #feather_perfection #perfect_birds #owl #owlsofinstagram #owlshead #birdsofprey

A New Zealand Rock Wren calling from a ..... wait for it......rock, high in the Southern Alps. This birds call is so high pitched I can barely pick it up. If there is any wind or I am close to flowing water I am hopeless and must rely solely on sight which can also be difficult because of the scree slopes they call home.#allmightybirds #best_birds_of_world #birds_illife #bns_birds #newzealand🇳🇿 #newzealand #best_birds_of_ig #aotearoa #wren #bird_lovers #bird_captures #bird_brilliance #planetbirds #southernalps #nzbirds #forestandbird #nzgeo #birdsinging #birdwatching #birding #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #kings_birds

A male Wood Duck calling at a pond in Victoria, B.C. This pond was only five minutes from my old home and there were several of these beauties present. The reflection of the trees gave the water a golden colour. #perfect_birds #nuts_about_birds #eye_spy_birds #bns_birds #your_best_birds #ducks #waterfowl #woodduck #ducksofinstagram #feather_perfection #canada🇨🇦 #bb_of_ig #best_birds_of_ig #planetbirds #birds_perfection #raw_birds #allmightybirds #birds_illife #best_birds_of_world

A male Paradise Shelduck (locals call them Pari and the Maori name is Putangitangi)on a pond close to my home in Christchurch, New Zealand. The male and female are so distinct from one another you may think they were different species. These birds are endemic to New Zealand and widespread.#animal_sultans #exclusive_wildlife #almightybirds #feather_perfection #almighty_birds #kings_birds #bb_of_ig #best_birds_of_ig #best_birds_of_instagram #total_birds#ip_birds #birds_adored #birds_illife #birds_captures #your_best_birds #eye_spy_birds #planetbirds #perfect_birds #birds_perfection #ducks #ducksofinstagram #waterfowl #paradise#putangitangi #newzealandbirds #newzealand

Canada’s national bird the Gray Jay (AKA:Whiskey Jack or Canada Jay)are very social and intelligent birds that will often land right on your hand when offered a treat. This was taken in Manning provincial park, BC one winter afternoon as it began to snow. #almightybirds #exclusive_wildlife #animal_sultans #feather_perfection #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #planetbirds #eye_spy_birds #canada🇨🇦 #whiskeyjack #canadajays #britishcolumbia #manningpark #bb_of_ig #best_birds_of_ig #best_birds_of_world #bns_birds #total_birds #perfect_birds #birdfreaks

A male Red-backed Fairy-wren belting out its song in a dry scrubby area in Brisbane, Australia. I feel hugely indebted to both @heyn.dekock and @duadepaton for their guidance and generosity while in Australia. Both are excellent birders and inspirational photographers.
