Today marks one year of me using Instagram as a public media tool, I mean by that it's been one year since I decided this was how I want to connect with people. I've been on Instagram longer than a year, but never really took it very seriously. Last year this time I was trying to figure out a way I could better connect with the larger community rather than just my facebook bubble of mostly scientist and photographers. So 40, 000 followers later, I'm extremely fortunate to all my followers that have decided to follow along, as I share my photography, research, and general opinions of the natural world. I feel very fortunate to you all and very glad you deem me worthy of following. This platform and other media formats are where I feel I can make a difference, in a world where more people need to be communicating about science and nature, I've found social media as a bridge for the gap. In a world that people are driven by social media and imagery, I strive to break into this in an engaging way, using photography, creative narratives, and compelling research. I hope this makes others interested in Science, research, and nature, I look forward to this next year and hope that you all continue to follow along with me. I'm also very grateful to all the other that have helped me along the way and paved the road for others. Big thank you for the support from @audubonsociety, @rainforestalliance, and @canonusa for sharing my message on their pages and stories.

Forever resembling a living peep (Happy Easter, everyone!), the Prothonotary Warbler (Protonotaria citrea) has long been cloaked in mystery. Well, its migratory habits have been, anyway. Like a great many warblers, it was known that prothonotaries spent their time in South America, but where? In 2014, Audubon ornithologists took advantage of technological advancements in geotagging to pull back that cloak. These handsome warblers weigh in at just about 15 grams, so the weight of the tags could not be a burden. Just fewer than 50 prothonotaries were captured last fall and fitted with tiny geolocator 'backpacks' ... and off they went. In the spring, 15 geotags were recovered (one off of a prothonotary named 'Longshot' in Francis Beidler Swamp in SC, where I have photographed a few of these beautiful warblers!). And so to where did the birds fly over the winter? To northern Columbia! The journeys took upwards of three months.

Schiele looooves kisses...but she won't let Vonnegut give her kisses nor will she let him anywhere near me...or "her" toys....or "her" play gym...or "her" food 😂. Which makes it hard when I try to capture her on video and Vonnegut see's the camera 😫...let's just say it's instant bird wars and cute Schiele turns into angry Schiele! Me thinks Schiele has definite sharing issues!!! But she has been showing signs of softening toward Vonnegut lately...its slow but it is progress! It's a good reminder that you CANNOT just put two parrots (especially ringneck) into a cage together. Their personalities must match, they must accept each other and bond BEFORE being housed together. It must be a slow introduction. Otherwise it could be fatal - literally! A female will often kill a male in her cage if she's not bonded to him. Vonnegut and Schiele have been in separate cages for almost a year now and still not bonded. It may still be another year before they are friends. Please keep that in mind when considering getting a pet ringneck 💕
