Props to the love of my life for stopping in the middle of our roadtrip to capture this chubby cute Eastern Bluebird in Elk on the Edge.

It's time for some more photos of my favourite nugget bird, the Pīwakawaka (or Fantail – Rhipidura fuliginosa). I had a great time on Sunday trying to get a decent photo of a Pīwakawaka in flight, what a challenge. These photos turned out lovely though. This little nugget kept noticing me taking its photo, I am unsure if it was pleased with me or not. You can judge that for yourselves.
BIRD FACT: While the typical Pīwakawaka only weighs 8 grams, many Pīwakawaka are moving to a diet of primarily protein powder, eggs, bacon, and bananas in an attempt to bulk up. Their motivation is to become bigger and stronger so that in future they will be better able to resist Maui should he attempt to squeeze information out of them again, as he did when he was trying to find the fire godess Mahuika. The Pīwakawaka take their role as messengers from the gods bringing news of death very seriously.

Ruffled Red-wing
This female Red-winged Blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus) was in mid-shake as I fired off a single shot. My shutter speed could have been 1/1000 of a second shorter, but I liked the motion sensation.

Blässhühner scheinen von Natur aus nicht gut auf Enten zu sprechen zu sein. Dieses hier ist jedenfalls eine richtige Zicke. Aus dem Nichts attackiert sie die anderen. Egal ob Futter oder Nachwuchs da sind oder nicht.

According to my bird book, the Brown Thrasher prefers running or hopping to flying. And this lovely bird can really move. 👟👟 #brownthrasher #thrasher #birdlovers #birdsofinstagram #birds #birdwatching #birdbrilliance #birdphotography #eye_spy_birds #nature #nature_perfection #naturephotography #naturelovers #ontariobirds #instanature #instabird
