Birds and birding news
  • With increasing loss of their preferred marsh habitat along the Gulf Coast, Mottled Ducks might move into urban and suburban habitats where they would be more likely to hybridize with Mallards.
  • Ruddy Shelducks fly at altitudes of up to 22,000 feet as they cross the Himalayas. High-altitude flight has previously been documented among Bar-headed Geese, which also fly over the Himalayas.
  • A section of the Northumberland coastline has been turned into a marine protected area to protect nesting seabirds, which are increasingly threatened by climate change. 
  • Photographing birds can be rewarding and support conservation, but photographers need to be careful to put the safety of the birds first.
  • A study found that a cockatoo can bend wires (in this case pipe cleaners) to retrieve food items. 
  • Australian Magpies dunk food in water before eating it.
  • Here are some hawkwatches in and around northeastern New Jersey.
