A pair of Splendid Fairy-wrens from my last trip over to Australia. This species was high up on my ‘want list’ so I was ecstatic when we found this showy pair. She was giving her mate an earful. He was not bothered.#your_best_birds #planetbirds #birdfreaks #bb_of_ig #best_birds_of_world #best_birds_of_ig #bns_birds #eye_spy_birds #bird_brilliance #birds_adored #birdlifeaustralia #fairywren #fairywrens #allmightybirds #birdsnature #naturesultans #nuts_about_birds #pocket_birds #birds_private #sassy_birds

Grey Warblers are one of the more common native songbirds in New Zealand. More commonly heard singing their beautiful song than actually being seen. This individual was rather confiding right at last light. I love that eye.#newzealandbirds #christchurch #newzealand #eye_spy_birds #kings_birds #bns_birds #planetbirds #your_best_birds #feather_perfection #bb_of_ig #best_birds_of_world #best_birds_of_ig #perfect_birds #birds_adored #birdsofinstagram #birds_private #bird_captures #bird_brilliance #birds_nature #warbler #allmightybirds #pocket_birds #animal_sultans

A pair of Australasian Gannet affirm their love after returning from the sea. This was taken at the Gannet colony at Muriwai, New Zealand. I could spend hours there just watching the various chapters in the lives of these birds.#newzealand #aotearoa #muriwai #gannet #eye_spy_birds #feather_perfection #birdfreaks #birds_adored #bird_captures #bns_birds #perfect_birds #your_best_birds #best_birds_of_world #allmightybirds #courtship #bond #love #beautifulbirds #birdsofinstagram #birdlovers

An American Kestrel hunts from a piece of driftwood on a spit in a coastal estuary in Sooke, B.C. I have never had much luck getting close to these guys especially on foot but this bird was very tolerant. Must have been hungry and to determined to be bothered by my presence.#canada🇨🇦 #birds #your_best_birds #birdfreaks #planetbirds #bb_of_ig #best_birds_of_world #allmightybirds #birds_adored #bird_brilliance #perfect_birds #feather_perfection #birdsofprey #kestrel #raptors #raptor #falcon #eye_spy_birds #birds_nature

A portrait of a Bufflehead taken in Victoria, B.C. When the light hits them just right the iridescence shines in their head feathers. #feather_perfection #nuts_about_birds #birdfreaks #your_best_birds #bb_of_ig #waterfowl #duck #bufflehead #cutebirds #canada🇨🇦 #victoria #bcbirds #birds #birdwatching #all_mighty_birds #birds_private #birds_adored #bird_brilliance

The Northern Pygmy Owl is a fierce little hunter. They are often recorded taking down prey larger than themselves. This bird was photographed just outside of Vancouver, British Columbia, on Canada’s west coast. Swipe the photo to see a cool feature these birds possess. On the back of their head are two large spots that form fake eyes. Recent theories suggest these may protect their actual eyes against attacks from mobbing songbirds who will often try to peck the owls eyes.#pocket_birds #allmightybirds #cutebirds #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #birds_adored #bird_brilliance #birdfreaks #planetbirds #bb_of_ig #best_birds_of_world #birdsnature #owl #owlsofinstagram #pygmyowl #vancouver #bcbirds #britishcolumbia #canada🇨🇦

I photographed this Australasian Crested Grebe with her chick this morning close to home in Christchurch, New Zealand. Too cute not to share🙂#nuts_about_birds #planetbirds #your_best_birds #birdsofinstagram #bb_of_ig #birdfreaks #bird_brilliance #birds_adored #bns_birds #birdsofinstagram #grebe #pocket_birds #allmightybirds #babybirds #cutebirds #cute #motherhood

I love the electric blue eyes on this species. This is an immature Satin Bowerbird photographed on my recent trip to Australia. Had a great couple days in Lamington National Park to start my trip.#nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #best_birds_of_world #bb_of_ig #planetbirds #birdfreaks #birdwatching #birdsofinstagram #birds_captures #satin #bowerbird #birdlifeaustralia #australianbirds #birds_private #birdsofaustralia #lamingtonnationalpark #rainforest #kings_birds #birds_adored

There were several highlights on my recent travels over to Australia. We managed to photograph a huge variety of species, but I’d have to say this one could have been the coolest of them all. The Pink Robin!!! It was so great to hang out and shoot with @heyn.dekock @duadepaton @gerard_satherley @jan_wegener_ .#allmightybirds #planetbirds #bns_birds #bb_of_ig #your_best_birds #best_birds_of_world #best_birds_of_ig #nuts_about_birds #eye_spy_birds #australianbirds #birdlifeaustralia #birdfreaks #feather_perfection #pink #robin #birds_adored #birds_captures #birdwatching #birdsofinstagram
