CEDAR WAXWING MINI
The Cedar Waxwing is a silky bird of brown, gray, and lemon-yellow feathers, accented with a crest, rakish black mask, and brilliant red wax droplets on the wing feathers. In fall they gather by the hundreds to eat berries, filling the air with their high, thin whistles.
WESTERN BLUEBIRD MINI
In open parklands of the American West, brilliant blue-and-rust Western Bluebirds sit on low perches and swoop lightly to the ground to catch insects. They nest in holes in trees and in winter they feed on berries while giving a quiet chortling call.
AMERICAN GOLDFINCH MINI
These handsome little finches, the state bird of New Jersey, Iowa, and Washington, are welcome and common at feeders. They are active and acrobatic, flying with a bouncy, undulating pattern while calling po-ta-to chip, po-ta-to chip.
BELTED KINGFISHER MINI
You might hear the kingfisher with its loud, rattling call before you see it perched by a stream or lake, looking for fish. A large head and hefty bill gives it a distinctive profile as it patrols its territory, using the open space above the water as a flyway.
PILEATED WOODPECKER MINI
A large and striking forest bird with a brilliant red crest. Look for this king of woodpeckers whacking at dead trees in search of wood- boring insects, leaving unique rectangular holes behind. Their nest holes also provide shelter to other birds, bats, and pine martens.
RED-WINGED BLACKBIRD MINI
A familiar sight atop cattails, along roadsides, and on telephone wires, the Red-winged Blackbird is one of the most abundant birds in the United States. Their tumbling song is a happy indication of the return of spring.
GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER MINI
Golden-winged Warblers are silvery gray birds with golden flashes on the head and wings. They breed in wet, shrubby tangles of the Upper Midwest and Appalachians and spend winters in open woodlands and shade-coffee plantations in Central America.
CAROLINA WREN MINI
In summer, patches of woods in the eastern United States ring with the rolling song of this shy bird. Though hard to see, this tiny wren delivers an amazing number of decibels for its size as it defends its territory by singing, scolding and chasing intruders.
LAYSAN ALBATROSS MINI
This hand-colored block print appears on the cover of A PERFECT DAY FOR AN ALBATROSS, a recently published children’s book from the Cornell Lab Publishing Group by award-winning author/illustrator Caren Loebel-Fried. Caren was inspired to write about the amazing Laysan Albatross after visiting Midway Atoll, where millions of seabirds make their home. Her story sweeps you into their world of wind, rolling seas, boisterous dancing, and intense commitment to one another and their nestlings. Compatible with Bird QR for streaming sounds and video.
RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRD MINI
Like all hummingbirds, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are precision flyers with the ability to fly full out and stop in an instant, and adjust their position up, down, sideways, and backward with minute control. Male ruby-throats aggressively defend flowers and feeders, leading to spectacular chases and dogfights, and occasional jabs with the beak. Feeders and flower gardens are great ways to attract these birds. Enjoy them while they’re around; by early fall they’re bound for Central America, with many crossing the Gulf of Mexico in a single flight.
There are 39 species of birds-of-paradise living in New Guinea, nearby islands, and Australia. Over eight years, Dr. Ed Scholes, an evolutionary biologist at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and Tim Laman, a world-renowned photojournalist and field biologist, captured images of all of the species for the first time. These illustrations are a part of this project. Visit birdsofparadiseproject.org to learn more about these extraordinary birds.
