A Yellow Warbler perched high in a pine tree after foraging for insects to feed its young. This location is one I had scout last year and had hopes of capturing images of this Yellow Warbler in the only pine tree in the area. I was super stoked when it finally happened and I was able to come away with a few keepers. #planet_birds#ip_birds
The blue bearded bee-eater distributed to limited forest areas in Asian regions #repost@prakash_sara
The blue feathers of its throat are elongated and often fluffed giving it its name. They have a loud call but are not as gregarious or active as the smaller bee-eaters, and their square-ended tail lacks the typical "wires" made up of the shafts of the longer central tail feathers in many species.
A gorgeous Helmeted Honeyeater enjoying yesterday’s sunshine. This critically endangered bird has been bought back from the brink - only 50 birds in the wild in the 1990s to current numbers of 200+. Thanks to the hard work of ZoosVictoria & volunteer groups. Endemic to Victoria, it is the state’s bird emblem & a subspecies of the Tufted Honeyeater.

Once cubs leave the warmth of the den, they have to face frigid temperatures that can easily drop to -50C° with wind chill.
Mother bears are particularly attentive and caring for the little ones while heading to Hudson Bay to hunt seals. They often stop to nurse and rest. In the event of a storm, they dig small “day dens” in snowdrifts to shelter their cubs from the elements.
