BIRDTOBER DAY 28: Loon (Common)
Known as a Great Northern Diver in the UK, though “Loon” has an interesting origin too. It comes from Scandinavian words for “lame,” like the Swedish lam; the loon’s large webbed feet make it less than graceful on land.
Common loons are mainly Nearctic. During their breeding season in spring and summer, most common loons live on lakes and other waterways in Alaska and Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Svalbard, Jan Mayen, and in Bear Island- and occasionally Scotland, too.
They usually winter along coasts in drab grey coats, migrating to the nearest body of water that will not freeze over in the winter- like US Florida, UK, France, and Spain.

@birdtober Day 29 - Loon Wren

The Wren is one of the smallest birds around, but has, in proportion to its size, the loudest song of any British bird. Wrens aren’t made for cold weather, so int winter they spend the nights cuddling together - usually around 10 birds in a single nestbox. Pictured here is a young Wren as I have a personal preference for them - they’re both grumpy and cute.

BIRDTOBER DAY 28: PENGUIN ( Adélie)

There are 18 different species of penguin, but only two species truly make the Antarctic their home by living and breeding there- the Emperor penguin and these guys, the Adélies.

Male Adélies are nest builders, and their aim is to attract a female by building the biggest and best nest. To do this they use small rocks; if they think their nest is lacking in the shiniest of rocks, the cheeky little Adélie will steal from their neighbour’s nest.

@birdtober Day 28 - Penguin

Emperor penguins are only found in Antarctica where they breed and raise their young. They’re the biggest species of penguins and can grow up to 120cm. Emperor penguins incubate their eggs during the long southern winter month. The female lays a single egg that is incubated by both parents for around 70 days - after that, a fluffy chick hatches.

@birdtober Day 27 - Kiwi

Kiwis are flightless birds native to New Zealand. They have tiny wings hidden under their loose feathers but can’t fly. Kiwis are mostly nocturnal, so they come out at night to forage for insects, fallen fruit and native plants. They are long-lived and can even live up to 50 years.

@birdtober Day 26 - Toucan

Ready for some facts about the toucan’s beak, its signature feature? Compared to the size of its body, the toucan has the largest bill of all the world’s birds. Unlike other birds, the toucan’s beak is also rather soft, which means they can’t use it to fight or to dig. It varies in colour and doesn’t have to be orange only - they can be brown, red, green, yellow or sometimes even black.
