“Corella Crowd”

This is a Little Corella taking a break from feeding on grain leftover by sheep, that is scattered through grass in a paddock. This flock consisted of hundreds of Little corellas, sometimes flocks are in the thousands.

When a large flock is in a very concentrated area like this it only takes one to be spooked, causing a chain reaction resulting in an explosion of squawking birds, it really is a sight to see.

It’s not uncommon to see a different species such as a galah or Sulpher-crested cockatoo among a flock such as this. I find it funny when I see a loner among a flock, it’s like they’re confused about their identity. I’m yet to do some research on this behaviour; if anyone can enlighten if there’s a documented reason they do this it would be appreciated.

This image would be more interesting if the main subject was a different coloured species such as a pink Galah, so it’s now my aim to photograph a loner and learn about the behaviour.

The keel billed toucan is also known as the rainbow billed toucan because of the colourful bill. The keel billed toucan's bill can reach lengths of nearly 20cm long and is around one third of the length of the keelbilled toucan's body.
As with other species of toucan, the size of the keel billed toucan's bill does not affect the balance of the bird itself as it's bill is made out of a substance called keratin, which is extremely light but still very strong. Keratin is also the substance that makes up human hair and fingernails.
The keel billed toucan is native to the jungles of South America where it lives in holes in the trees, often with several other keel billed toucanindividuals. In order to ensure that there is enough space for them all, the keel billed toucan group all sleep with their beak and tail tucked under their body to create more room for the other birds.
The keel billed toucan has a diet that primarily consists of large quantities of different varieties of fruit and berries. However, due to the surprising dexterity of the keel billed toucan's bill, the keel billed toucan also feasts on bird eggs, insects, lizards, and tree frogs should the keel billed toucanfeel peckish and in the absence of fruit.
The keel billed toucan is an extremely sociable bird and is very rarely seen on it's own. As well as nesting together, the keel billed toucan travels in small flocks which usually contain between 6 and 15 keel billed toucanindividuals. Despite what people think though, the keel billed toucan is not very good at flying and does most of its moving about by hopping between the tree branches. // Credit: Glenn Bartley / #birdsofinstagram #birdlife #birds #birdwatching #birdwatcher #birdwatchers #amazing #amazinganimals #wildbird #igbirds #ig_birdwatchers #ig_animals #bird_brilliance #bird_lovers_daily

El impacto de los gatos hacia la vida silvestre

Un estudio publicado por Nature Communications, presentó el devastador impacto de estos felinos sobre el resto de la vida animal en Estados Unidos, la conclusión puede producir incredulidad: los gatos son la principal amenaza para la vida silvestre. El estudio afirma que son responsables de la muerte de entre 1.400 y 3.700 millones de aves y entre 6.900 de mamíferos cada año solo en ese país.
