What Holiday Is Today.... (@national_calendar365)

There are a lot of different species of birds in the world. Different people have different relationships with the various species. As such, one could easily imagine that there are actually numerous Bird Days in the world, serving different purposes varying by region. What we’re talking about is known as Bird Day, observed primarily in the United States, which is different from occasions such as International Migratory Bird Day, World Migratory Bird Day, Bird Day (UK), and several other Bird Days which do not follow the same etymology as “turkey day”. We’ll also note that all of these are all named for our avian friends, not the late Senator Robert Byrd. The National is a bit deceptive here; For a day to technically be a National holiday, an Act of Congress is required, and there’s no evidence that has ever happened. That being said, it is popularly known as Bird Day, regardless of whatever Congress might think of that.

Suet Snack-time for a male Downy Woodpecker [December 2016]

Ruby-Roo playing peekaboo 😁 Initially we had 4 green wings perched on the food container on the food cart that were all eating (Maggie, Fanny, Lucy, Ruby) and Then one of the volunteers decided to start up peekaboo and every single one did it 😂 We started to get spectators (Mr. Pickles a great green macaw and Papa a blue and gold). None of the volunteers knew who Ruby was so we managed to scan for a chip (all the birds are chipped) and we got a hit. So, that's the story of how I met Ruby 😜 Most birds grab their beaks when we say peekaboo but she just brings her foot up #zazushouse #nationalbirdday #rescuedontbuy #greenwing #macaw #ruby #peekaboo

Martin Johnson Heade, fue un fanático de los colibríes y la historia natural que escribió más de un centenar de textos y cartas sobre estas gráciles aves tropicales, las que aparecen en esta pintura del siglo XIX junto a una enredadera de parchitas, creada con gran belleza plastica por el propio Heade. ¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤ He was an ardent devotee of natural history, contributed over one hundred letters and articles on hummingbirds and related topics to “Forest and Stream.” The particular species of the hummingbird represented in this painting is the black-eared fairy (Heliothryx aurita) whose habitat is the lowlands of the Amazon basin, as is the passionflower (Passiflora racemosa).

This rarely seen bird, the Hairy-crested antbird, is an uncommon sighting in our nature reserve, so we were delighted when our keen birder and #volunteer Graham spotted him.

What an epic start to the year! Last week @natgeo selected my image as the cover for #NationalBirdDay in the #UnitedStates! Was truly an honour to be recognised by them and hopefully won't be the last!

@birdlife_insta ---------------------------------------------------------------- Thousands of #carmine bee-eaters take off from their nesting grounds at #sunset on the #Sikunya Channel of the #Zambezi #River in northern #Namibia's #Caprivi Strip.

Two amateur bird ringers were attempting to ring several hundred of these #birds in order to find out more information on where the birds migrate to after their breeding season finishes up.
