Spotted kingfisher

The spotted wood kingfisher or spotted kingfisher (Actenoides lindsayi) is a species of bird in the family Alcedinidae. It is endemic to the Philippines where its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.

The spotted wood kingfisher is a colourful bird that can readily be distinguished from other kingfishers in the Philippines. It is about 26 cm (10 in) long with spotting above and scalloping beneath. The male has a dark green crown with black spots and a light green stripe above a pale blue supercilium with a black band beneath.
The spotted wood kingfisher is endemic to the Philippines where it is present on Luzon, Catanduanes, Marinduque, Negros and Panay. It inhabits moist primary forest in both lowland and hilly areas. It was more abundant on Luzon in the past but logging has reduced the area of suitable habitat.

The spotted wood kingfisher occurs in pairs or as a solitary bird but is seldom seen because it moves around in dense cover in the lower storey of the forest. It feeds on beetles and other insects, snails and small vertebrates which it probably finds while foraging on the ground. Little is known of its breeding behaviour; it is thought to nest in termite nests in trees, but this may not be the case because other members of the genus mostly choose to nest in holes in trees or in the ground.

Ruffed grouse. When the snow finally stopped falling this grouse was stuck in the snow in Round Prairie. It didn't try to move for the hour to come and then finally broke free. The severe winter conditions made the animals suffer. The strong will survive. #grouse #ruffedgrouse #bird #birdstagram #yellowstone #wildlife #yellowstonenps #natgeo #yellowstoneforever #wildlifeplanet #nikon #roundprairie #wyoming

What bunnies need: big area for binkies, a lot of love and attention from humans! 🐰
Cage free indoor bunnies are basically like dogs and cats in a family. I think it's easier to create that special bond with them when they live with you like this, being able to follow you everywhere. I also let Melv and B go outside when the weather allows it, especially during summer and they love it! But they always appreciate coming back inside and sleep in their bunny bed where they feel 100% safe 😙
