Not the prettiest backdrop, but a fascinating and rather lovely example of bird behaviour- I was visiting a friend, and they spotted their wild Bush Stone-curlew (or Bush Thick-knee, Burhinus grallarius) family, and called me over to see them. Less habituated to me than to my friend, who they know and tolerate in their vicinity, one of the parent birds covered both chicks with its wings, holding them tightly, against their muffled, but still audible protests, and fixed me with a baleful glare! So adorable! I took a quick photo of the bizarre 6-legged curlew (this is cropped from a photo taken from further away than it looks!), and left them to get on with their parental duties!!! ❤️🌼😊 Fujifilm camera #birdsofinstagram  #ornithology  #bird #behaviour #bird_behaviour #birds  #yourbestbirds  #birdsofoz  #birdsofaustralia  #birdsofaus  #australianbirds  #birding  #birdingaustralia  #ebird #featherperfection  #kingsbirds  #bestbirds #wildlifephotography  #australianfauna #australiannativefauna  #australianwildlife  #beautyiseverywhere  #fujifilm #brisbanephotographer  #brisbaneartist  #loveaustralia  #lovelife #mother #motherlove #family

A peacock in Victoria Park 🦚 Fun fact: The first pair of peacocks was brought to the small town of Souris in 1984 or 1985. Since then, the peacock muster has encountered bad humans, coyotes, harsh winters and floods... but this year there were chicks spotted around town and the muster is healthy!

It's been pretty cool to see some species of birds endemic to the Galápagos Islands, including this lava gull, Galápagos flycatcher and Galápagos rail! The birds here are not shy at all, the flycatchers especially would come hang out next to us wherever we went #ecuadorbirds #galapagosislands . . . . . . . . #endemic #galapagos #birdsofecuador #tropicalbirds #bird_brilliance #birdphotography #birders #birding #naturephotography #naturelovers #natureshots #ecuador #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet #planetearth #natgeoyourshot #natgeoshare #nuts_about_birds #pnwoutdoorwomen #wildlifeshots #bestbirdshots #yourbestbirds
