  1. Help Save the Brixen Floodplain Forest and Its Wildlife! Dear Forum Members, We need your urgent support in protecting the precious Brixen floodplain forest and its unique biodiversity, especially endangered bird species. The planned expansion of the Progress Group’s high-tech plant threatens irreversible destruction to this vital habitat. Save 64 Bird Species: The Brixen floodplain forest is a critical habitat for 64 bird species, including 29 species that breed in the area (Gray flycatcher, the wryneck, the gray woodpecker, the nightingale, the wood warbler, the hoopoe etc.) Protect Irreplaceable Biodiversity: The loss of the floodplain forest and its habitats would be irreversible. Preserve an Ecologically Vital Habitat: The Brixen floodplain forest plays a crucial role in maintaining ecological balance. As one of the last riparian forests in the Eisack Valley, it provides a range of essential ecological services, including flood regulation, water purification, and carbon sequestration. The Brixen floodplain forest is a treasure trove of biodiversity and one of the last of its kind in the Eisack Valley. With only 0.6% of South Tyrol’s forest area being riparian forests, they are exceptionally rare habitats. It provides a critical habitat for numerous bird species, both migratory and breeding. The loss of the floodplain forest and destruction of habitats for 64 bird species are irreversible. Some bird species are already on the Red List of endangered species in South Tyrol, and we cannot let this situation worsen. Join us in demanding that the Progress Group and authorities take responsible actions to preserve this unique forest landscape and protect its incredible flora and fauna for generations to come. Sign and share this petition, and let’s make a difference together! #SaveBrixenFloodplainForest #ProtectOurHabitats #PreserveBiodiversity
  2. This bird was in the Smithsonian Zoo in the Amazonian exhibit. I cant find anything that looks like it besides the yellow winged blackbird, but the yellow winged blackbird doesn't have the yellow under tail coverts that this bird has and it does not belong to the amazon. Please help me identify this bird.
  3. Hi all! I took this picture last summer sometime in July at a cool wildlife Refuge called Pinckney Island just outside Hilton Head Island. Since then, I haven't been able to put my finger on it. It looks similar to a Great Blue Heron, but there are some key differences like the multi-colored bill/beak and weird legs. There's just something different about this bird. Oh, and if it helps at all, I do recall that day that this bird was chaperoning some youngster birds who weren't too old so maybe it has to be with the breeding season. Let me know your thoughts! Thanks!
  4. My Florida boy (AKA Hubby) is finally doing good on his promise to take me to the Everglades. Thirty+ years later. The closest I ever got were a Nazareth concert in Hollywood Florida in 1978 and a drive through it from St. Pete to get to a wedding in Tamarac many years ago. We are doing a paddling & camping (& birding, for me) trip. I went to ebird to check the lists for Collier county and saw @Connor Cochranehas been busy down there recently. ? I am hoping to see a Mangrove Cuckoo, but the Bar Charts are a little meh for December. Even if I don't see anything new, it should be a terrific trip. ❤️

    This is an upcoming trip for me but one I am so excited for so I have to tell/ask ya'll about it. My current plan (which evolves around my dads work schedule) is to spend a week on the big island (also known as the island Hawaii- its the one with the volcano) and then spend a week in Honolulu. A friend of mine is going to be staying on the big island at the same time as me and has said he knows some good spots, wanted to ask here though either because you guys tend to know whats up. So, Best birding spots on the big island? Also almost more importantly, Best spots in and around Honolulu? because my budy will be staying on big island when I go to the city. I have been using Ebird to watch sightings and check around the hotspots, but sometimes that can only go so far in telling where the birding actually exists. current time frame is planing to fly in on Christmas eve and be there for two weeks. Thanks for any thoughts! Glad to be back on this forum!

  7. The Fastest Birds In The World Birds come in all shapes and sizes and boast a variety of physical capacities, such as the ability to fly or dive at rates of speed that rival vehicles. Peregrine falcons can hit speeds of up to 240 miles per hour while diving, or stooping, using their long, pointed wing. During courtship the ruby-throated hummingbird can beat its wings more than 200 times per second. Often seen as majestic creatures as they soar overhead, birds come in all shapes and sizes and boast a variety of physical capacities, such as the ability to fly or dive at rates of speed that rival vehicles. Some, like the flightless ostrich, are able to run at break-neck speed to avoid their natural predators. These speedy animals combine thrust, drag, weight, and lift to achieve flight but their wing-beat and span helps dictate just how fast they may be able to take off. These are some of the fastest birds in the world according to specific skill sets like diving ability, flight and running speed, and wing-beat.

  9. Sri Lanka Scaly Thrush (Zoothera imbricate) A rare shy forest loving ground thrush with olive brown above with rufous buff underparts. The scaly pattern all over the body and a larger and longer bill with its chunky appearance make identification easy. It is confined to lower hills and higher elevations. Spends most of its time on the ground turning over the dead leaves looking for insect food.

  11. taken 6/29/19 at 9:16 AM Mahopac, NY This little bird appear to be alone going from branches to branches at the edge of a wooden area. It's the first time I've seen that bird. Is this a Great Crested Flycatcher?
