Male Variegated Fairy Wren
Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, NSW, Australia. Striking colours on this little fella, what female could resist such a handsome mate! This species is located in numerous habitats across most of Australia, it prefers to hunt for food on the ground in dense thickets of vegetation, its favourite munchies are small insects and seeds.

Swans are a common sight in lakes around Switzerland. They casually take a pause and relax at the harbour, park, or even at public exercise area sometimes. After all, these graceful bodies must come from hard work and determination.
👑 New Zealand's very own alpine parrot and notorious smarty-pants, the kea, has been rightfully crowned 2017 Bird of the Year 👑 My personal loyalties lay elsewhere this year (banded dotterel!), but secretly I'm also stoked that kea won. Not a second too late, either. As an endangered species, these gregarious goofballs need all the help and publicity they can get 🐤 My favourite thing about BOTY is that people seem to get more passionate about it every year, and I also love that (so far) a different bird has won each time 🐤🐦🐧
