There is a wonderful little island in the Cape fear River near my home in North Carolina called Ferry Slip. It’s man-made from dredging to create deep enough water for the local ferry nearby. North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission and Audubon North Carolina monitor and protect Brown Pelicans that nest in this amazing spot. Protected Audubon islands in North Carolina account for about half the brown pelican population in the state. It’s just part of the incredible success story that brought these birds back from the brink of extinction.
Live life with passion,
see the beauty in all things
and share it with the world.

this started out as a terrible painting of a “ kingfisher “ which is a terrible name for anything that isn’t a queen or a king who fishes ( in my opinion only ) but then i got wiggly and it did too . such is the life of the kinksquisher ... #imdb#uv#u &me #audubon#birdwatching
The Red-breasted Nuthatch is a cute little bird that creeps up and down tree trunks looking for conifer seeds. The name ‘nuthatch’ is derived from nut hacker, which reflects their method of opening nuts by jamming them into a crevice and hammering them open. Their “yank-yank” call from the treetops sounds like tiny honking horns.

Elegant Trogon. I was so happy to finally see and photograph this beautiful bird in Madera Canyon in the company of two wonderful friends @alecia_birds and @preetalina . Much of the credit goes to @alecia_birds for initially spotting it.
