We saw some beautiful rare books from the Cullman collections at the Smithsonian Libraries. These images are from Catesby's The natural history of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands (1731). All of these can be found in North Carolina. The plate for the Eastern Towhee shows how difficult color could be for naturalists; there's hardly any red! . I found a paper (http://www.phytoneuron.net/2013Phytoneuron/06PhytoN-CatesbyIDs.pdf) that says what Catesby calls Orobanche virginiana is currently classified as Monotropa uniflora, what I would call ghost pipe. . #smithsonianlibraries #rarebooks #ncbirds #ncwildflowers

Beautiful Black-and-White Warbler! These stunning birds act more like nuthatches than warblers, often creeping around and hanging upside down from tree trunks and branches while foraging for hidden insects. Black-and-White Warblers are also fairly combative; they will attack and fight with other species who enter their territory. • • • • #birds #birding #wildlife #ncbirds #ncbirding #ncwildlife #warbler #wildlifeconservation #birdphotography #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #blackandwhite #blackandwhitewarbler #birdbehavior #ornithology #birbs

We saw a beautiful Wood Duck hanging out in a canal on the side of the highway this week near Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge! When Wood Ducks nest in trees near water, the ducklings will often jump down out of the nest from heights of up to 50 feet without injury! • • • • #birds #birding #ncbirds #wildlife #ncwildlife #ncbirding #roadsidebirding #woodduck #ducks #mattamuskeet #birdphotography #wildlifephotography #wildliferefuge

We’ve been seeing lots of Blue Jays outside the Raleigh office lately! Did you know that the pigment in their feathers is melanin, which is actually brown? The blue color is the result of scattering light through modified cells on the surface of the feather barbs. 📷 by Joseph’s Photography Visuals • • • #birds #birding #wildlife #ncbirds #ncwildlife #ncbirding #wildlifeconservation #nature #birdphotography #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #bluejay #bluejays

Eastern Kingbird (aka Tyrannus tyrannus)! The scientific name “tyrannus” means “tyrant, despot, or king.” This name is well-deserved based on the Eastern Kingbird’s aggression exhibited toward each other and other species. When defending their nests they will attack much larger species like hawks and crows, sometimes knocking birds like Blue Jays out of trees. They have also been know to attack squirrels. These birds are insectivores, and both adults and nestlings regurgitate pellets containing insect exoskeletons. 📷 by a_birder • • • • #birds #birding #wildlife #ncbirds #ncwildlife #ncbirding #wildlifeconservation #birdconservation #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #easternkingbird #kingbird #tyrannus

Mallard Duck 🌿Mallard ducks escape the cold winters of the north by flying south during this season. They fly in flocks and often to the same spot year after year. They rely on landforms such as coast lines and valleys to guide them.
