Уже совсем скоро у моей букашки-красавицы появится подружка - колибри. Днем больше удается повышивать, а не порисовать. Сделала пару крестиков, и снова бегом на борьбу с соплями, мокрыми подгузниками, разбросанной едой и прочими прелестями)))

If I had to choose a spirit animal to represent me, I think I’d go with the hummingbird. The speed of their wings reminds me of the speed of my thought-streams so often abundant with curious questions. The speed of their movement, quick and decisive. Flirting with gravity, as if to say: I dare you try and pull me down...in a playful way. To the observer: did you or didn’t you see me there? How can you be sure?
This one is on a card someone sent to my beau, who is recovering from a recent surgery.
Video by @TimLaman | Costa’s and rufous hummingbirds visit ocotillo flowers in Coachella Valley, California. One of the projects I was lucky enough to be able to work on this year was documenting the birdlife at the Sunnylands sanctuary near Palm Springs, where I shot this video. If you’re in the Palm Springs area this winter, check out the full exhibit at the Sunnylands Center and Gardens. If not, hope these hummingbirds brighten your day, and if you’d like to see more from this project, head over to @TimLaman.#hummingbird#birds#yearofthebird#sunnylands#birdsofsunnylands

This year for @wildbirdresearch also brought some unique firsts in the resident birds of #CostaRica as well. The biggest shock and surprise was the White-throated Magpie Jay, for jays this has to be the most fancy looking jay around, they’re also extremely smart and often traveling in large cooperative groups, meaning they have eluded us at all our research sites, until now. Hopefully will have more of a sample size in the future to learn about their molt. The other big surprise the Royal Flycatcher in the mangroves, this now is our second time getting a Royal Fly, they are not common on this side of Costa Rica, but might be overlooked. Others are some of our common residents we get and also another new species, Common Tody Flycatcher, ill talk more about some of the details of resident species research in the coming weeks on here and @wildbirdresearch, but for now enjoy a little highlight of White-throated Magpie Jay, Lessons Motmot, Royal Flycatcher, Common Tody Flycatcher, Long-tailed Manakin.
