The Long-wattled Umbrellabird is named after its obviously long wattle, sometimes even as long as the bird itself. The male can control its length at will and inflates it as a display while courting a mate. This one was photographed in El Oro, South Ecuador.

Photo of the day - The tanager family comprises a whole bunch of particularly colorful species, including this beauty – the Blue Dacnis. Widely distributed throughout Central and South America, it occurs in forests and other woodlands, including domestic gardens and parks. Adam Riley photographed this individual at a bird feeder in Brazil’s Ubatuba area.

Photo of the day – Shame, all this juvenile Dark Chanting Goshawk probably wanted was to rest in peace while surveying its territory, but then along comes a Fork-tailed Drongo – and that’s the end of that! Oh well, such is the price to pay for being a predatory animal, which for obvious reasons doesn’t sit well with those on the receiving end. In the case of drongos the world over this goes even further, and the unwritten law of these superb watchdogs (watchbirds??) is the duty to warn other animals of such predators in their midst. Along with this is the obligatory mobbing with which to hopefully scare them off and restore a sense of safety in the immediate vicinity, a feat for which drongos are particularly adept, including actually pulling the feathers out of such raptors in order to get their message across! Thanks to Markus Lilje who photographed this everyday avian event somewhere in Kenya.

The Velvet-purple Coronet is restricted to the western slope of the Andes in Northern Ecuador, where this photo was taken, and Colombia.

Black-rumped Flameback (Dinopium benghalense puncticolle)

Xantus’s #Hummingbird was named after Hungarian zoologist John Xantus de Vesey, who has several animals and plants named after him. I photographed this one in its native land of Baja, #Mexico.

Photo of the day – Admittedly a re-post, this is a bird (and image) that surely warrants a bit of extra attention? One of only two sunbird-asities on earth, and restricted entirely to Madagascar, this is the Yellow-bellied Sunbird-Asity (as opposed to its commoner relative, the creatively named Common Sunbird-Asity), and for obvious reasons is very high on any birder’s wish list when visiting this extraordinary island. Thanks to the late James Wakelin for this stupendous photo of this glorious bird!
