Capable of holding their breath for a full metric hour, Kingfishers hunt in a manner very similar to their crocodilian cousins. By lying in wait at the bottom of ponds or other bodies of water, these archosauric avians exploit the fact that fish cannot look down. When a tasty morsel swims over their head, the Kingfisher bursts forward with a mighty beat of their wings; the instantaneous momentum is so great that they often escape the water entirely.

“Flint finds a sad-looking caged bird aboard a merchant ship and, being a secret soft-hearted sort, he decides to liberate it.“

Inspired by the sweet and beautiful Black Sails fanfic “For the Caged Bird Sings of Freedom” by @old-long-john (and thanks to @captain-flint who spotted the bird cage in season 1). So, here’s James having a happy little moment with a lovely little canary <3 

Please, do not repost elsewhere, thank you :) Painted with (happy) tears, morning light and whistled classical music i.e. watercolours and photoshop.

September 12, 2016 - Blue Crane or Stanley Crane (Anthropoides paradiseus)

These cranes are found in grasslands of southern Africa. The long black feathers that appear to be their tails are actually wing feathers. They eat mostly grass seeds, roots, and tubers, along with insects, worms, crabs, and fish. Pairs form long-term monogamous bonds and build their nests near water. They feed insects to the chicks for the first few days of their lives, until they are able to feed themselves. Though the chicks grow quickly and can fly in about three months, they don’t breed until around four years of age. They are classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN, due mostly to habitat loss, collision with power lines, and poisoning.
