Absolutely in love with this goldfinch on a snow-covered thistle. Little red dot in all the grey and white. Also shows nicely how it got his German name - "thistle finch"

I was slowly driving down Mid-Pines Road in Raleigh which is a popular birding spot when I noticed this red shouldered hawk perched on the fence post.

It was so still I almost thought it was a decoy lol. I pulled off to the side of the road and took several pictures. This was the best one, so I call it the perfect pose

I really look forward to the spring migration of warblers.This male Yellow Rumped Warbler was perched on a mossy branch along the Speed River. The males are quite dazzling in bright yellow, charcoal gray and black and bold white, especially in the spring.

Up close and personal with a slightly worse for wear looking kōtuku ngutupapa. I wonder what caused the hole in its bill and hope it wasn’t human related…

Numenius

English: Curlews
Español: Zarapitos
Wikipedia

Source (permission granted by author):

The curlews, genus Numenius, are a group of eight species of birds, characterised by long, slender, downcurved bills and mottled brown plumage. The English name is imitative of the Eurasian curlew's call, but may have been influenced by the Old French corliu, "messenger", from courir , "to run". In Europe "curlew" usually refers to one species, the Eurasian curlew Numenius arquata.
