Every weekend Odette Doest (@vetdoest) and her partner in crime flamingo Bob visit Baoase Luxury Resort on the island of Curaçao to educate guests in the island and in search for supporters of their valuable conservation work. This time Odette’s niece Abigail and her father joined the team and Abigail was eager to hold Bob during Odette’s educational talk. Bob doesn’t seem to mind as he is always happy to visit @baoase as it allows him to set foot in the ocean and get some relief from the pain caused by a chronic foot injury.
Follow me @jasperdoest, @vetdoest and @fdoccuracao for more images of Flamingo Bob who is slowly becoming #instafamous as the animal ambassador of Fundashon Dier en Onderwijs Cariben (FDOC).
⠀ #repost@nationalparkservice⠀ • • •⠀ The song of the white-throated sparrow (Zonotrichia albicollis) is one of the most common bird songs heard in #Voyageurs. Some people describe it as a thin whistle that sounds like "Oh-sweet-Canada-Canada" or "Old-Sam-Peabody-Peabody." However you describe its song, the white-throated sparrow has a distinctive white or tan throat patch, with white or tan stripes alternating with black strips on the top of its head. You might not remember its name but its song will be hard to forget. .

Now i can say that costa rica is the best place to watch the quetzal bird. In san gerardo de dota it is said that there are 200 couples. They are not shy at all and you can see them around the town from 530 am until 7 am in the aguacatillo trees, they love that tree. I recommend to hire a guide to find the best spots. #costarica#quetzal#birdsofinstagram#birdsofcostarica#naturelovers#cloudforest
Red-footed booby at Genovesa, Galapagos.
The red-footed booby comes in a confusing array of colour morphs, ranging from individuals that are all white except for blackish on the wing, to individuals that are entirely dark brown. Some birds fail to fit neatly into any of the typical colour morph categories, and many variations exist. Colour morphs do not segregate; individuals representing several morphs breed in a single colony.
