Species Sunday!—— featuring the Upland Sandpiper. This species of sandpiper does not nest near water—they prefer short, grassy fields & pastures. Once a common game bird, Uplands are a rare nester in Iowa now. CRP lands have helped these birds specifically in the south/central part of the state 📷: Mark Brown #saveiowanesters #uplandsandpiper #thisisiowa #youngbirder #artforconservation #iowadnr

Some feeder action this snowy morning, some of the birds even landed on the camera! Be sure to keep an eye out for birds in your yard this winter! ❄️ #saveiowanesters #goprobird #youngbirder #birdfeeder #thisisiowa #firstsnowfall #winterbirding

It’s Species Sunday—feat. the Ruffed Grouse. Last week birders in Allamakee Co. heard a male drumming (beating their feathers to produce a low booming sound)—males do so in the summer/fall to defend territory & in the spring to attract mates. The Ruffed Grouse was once found throughout the forest habitat of Iowa, often near a source of water, but today they are only found in the NE corner due to deforestation. It’s a rare treat to locate one nowadays.

It’s Species Sunday! 🎉🦆- featuring the King Rail. This wetland bird is Endangered in Iowa. Very few can still be found in the state—from 2008-2012 only one nesting was ‘confirmed’. This decline is mostly because only 10% of Iowa’s original wetlands remain. You can help by supporting organizations that are actively working to restore & preserve Iowa’s wetlands such as The Nature Conservancy in Iowa @nature_ia and Iowa’s Water and Land Legacy @iowaswaterandlandlegacy 📷: Mark Brown/KING RAIL in Iowa, circa 2005.

Species Sunday!— featuring the Red-headed Woodpecker. Have you ever seen one of these flashy woodpeckers fly over the road or perch on a telephone pole? Red-headed Woodpeckers are becoming a rare sight in Iowa as the  hardwood nut trees they need to live are cleared away. Planting stands of trees like oak, hickory, and beech can help keep them nesting around your home. 🌱🌳🌳🌳#saveiowanesters #youngbirder #redheadedwoodpecker #birdyourworld #yearofthebird #thisisiowa #iowadnr #optoutside #planttrees

If you visit the #saveiowanesters exhibit this winter, be sure to look for the Upland Sandpiper 👀, a bird you can only see in Iowa for a few precious months in the summer before they migrate south. 🏖🌴☀️ #prettybird #thisisiowa #uplandsandpiper #youngbirder #artexhibition #birdyourworld #yearofthebird

It’s Species Sunday! — today I’m featuring the Northern Bobwhite, colloquially known as the Bobwhite quail. In the past, the Bobwhite was one of Iowa’s staple game birds, but habitat loss from modern farming methods greatly decreased their numbers. CRP acreage in the southern 3 tiers of counties has led to a recent Bobwhite comeback in those areas. 📷: Linda Rudolph #saveiowanesters

Habitat Matters! 🌳 Congratulations to @buchanan_county_conservation_  on winning a 1st place 🥇 State Habitat Award for their efforts to provide & enhance wildlife habitat!

It’s Species Sunday!—featuring the Cerulean Warbler. If you live along Iowa’s eastern edge you’ve possibly seen or heard one of these striking blue warblers as they forage for insects high in the treetops. The Cerulean requires very specific mature woodland habitat—the loss of most mature forests in Iowa has led to its decline. Loss of their wintering habitat in South and Central America has caused the entire population to suffer. Buying bird-friendly coffee that is grown without clearing forest habitat is one way you can help the Cerulean. ☕️ ❤️🐦#saveiowanesters #speciessunday #thisisiowa #iowadnr #birdyourworld #yearofthebird #youngbirder #iowabirds #ceruleanwarbler 📷: Mark Brown, Linda Rudolph, CERULEAN WARBLER

Species Sunday!—featuring the Bobolink. Have you ever seen a Bobolink? These striking birds once lived across Iowa’s tallgrass prairies, but today due to habitat loss they are mostly found in pastures & hayfields. Their eggs & chicks are often destroyed by mowing & hay-cropping too early in the season. Landowners who delay mowing until late July significantly increase nesting success & aid in the Bobolink’s long term survival in Iowa. Swipe left for a beautiful photo of a Bobolink in Iowa perched on a stalk of wild parsnip (an invasive).

Hello! My name is Coralee. I’m an artist + a member of Iowa Young Birders. I created the traveling art exhibit SAVE IOWA NESTERS to spread awareness on the impact habitat loss has had on 8 different nesting bird species in my state. This collection of ‘larger than life’ birds will be on display at Fontana Nature Center in Buchanan County, Iowa from October thru November. I hope you’ll follow along with me here to learn more about the exhibit, Iowa birds, my artistic process, & where my birds are heading next! #saveiowanesters #thisisiowa #iowadnr #youngbirder #yearofthebird #birdyourworld #audubonsociety #birdnerd #habitatloss #raisingawareness #artforchange #youngartist #artistsoninstagram #captureiowa
