Great Blue Heron seen through the brush. High res photos available now at er-dos.com/birds for those interested. I haven’t been the most organized so there are still some missing, but most are up! Organized by species.
Never in my life have I been stopped dead in my tracks by a bird. This Cape Glossy Starling might be the most eery and breathtaking bird I have ever seen. —- This bird is found in the Cape of South Africa and is considered an endemic species; meaning it is confined to only one geographical region. It depends on a certain type of habitat for survival, and if that habitat is destroyed it becomes endangered to the region. —- The Glossy Starling is monogamous! Unless its mate dies and it then seeks out another. Oh! And their eggs are blue too 😍—- With eyes that could look right through you, no wonder I felt so vulnerable and entranced. —- #wildlife#wildlifephotography#capeglossystarling#africanbirdwatching#audobonsociety
