    The Belted Kingfisher is often first noticed by its wild rattling call as it flies over rivers or lakes. It may be seen perched on a high snag, or hovering on rapidly beating wings, then plunging headfirst into the water to grab a fish. Found almost throughout North America at one season or another, it is the only member of its family to be seen in most areas north of Mexico.   Planting bird- and insect-friendly native trees and shrubs is a great way to get started now on a property that will sustain wintering, migrating, and breeding birds. Here are a few examples of native trees and shrubs that attract birds and make out-sized contributions to suburban habitats in the East.

      East Africa has geographically been an important bird area since it lies on the migratory path — Africa-Eurasia flyaway system — of some of the world’s unique bird species. Recent studies however show that in the past two decades in Kenya and Uganda, the population of the Grey Crowned Crane has dropped by 80 per cent with their nesting Author: RUPI MANGAT. And, like the large format book "Southern African Birds: A Photographic Guide", it contains high quality photos. This new book has two improvements. One, nearly every species is shown with multiple photos (versus just one) to illustrate differences between genders and seasons/5.

    Owl Breeding & Reproduction. By Deane Lewis. Owl Reproduction. For Owls, as with other birds, the period during which nesting and rearing young occurs is the most important part of the annual cycle. It is the time during which genes are passed on to the next generation, and considerable effort is expended by the parents to make sure this happens. Our Flyways Programme focuses on protecting birds across three major global flyways. African-Eurasian Flyway: connects the breeding grounds of Europe and northern Asia with the wintering grounds in Africa, including vital stop-over sites in the Middle East and Mediterranean.

Maximum known ages include 34 for an Arctic tern and 32 for a sooty. Although several other species are known to live in captivity for up to 20 years, their greatest recorded ages are underestimates because the birds can outlive their rings.
